Let’s dive in with our favorite apps before we look at the best Greensboro hookup bars and hotspots.
While it may not seem like a traditional place to hook up, Common Grounds is a great place to meet fellow singles. Famous for its selection of hot, iced and frozen coffee beverages and its variety of wine and craft and draft beers, this gem sits right in the center of historic Lindley Park on the corner of Walker and Elam Avenues.
Common Grounds also offers up some great entertainment. Hosting live music Wednesdays through Saturdays--including open mic Thursdays--this place relaxes you with its chill energy that appeals to singles over the age of 30.
Mystery Movie Mondays in its boutique movie theatre and an eclectic art gallery also add to the charm and popularity of this place. So if you’re looking for a fling in a casual spot, head over to Common Grounds.
If you’re ready for a new type of hookup experience, Cougar Life can provide that. Perfect for guys interested in women in the over-30 category and for ladies who just want a good time, Cougar Life keeps topping our annual list of favorite cougar sites and apps for four years running.
Aside from the fact that it boasts a membership base of 7 million-plus active profiles, this app may very well be your best shot at landing a sexy, older woman. Let’s face it, guys: women over the age of 30 have a lot going on. They're busy with their careers, kids, hobbies and whatnot. Not many of these ladies have the time or inclination to go bar hopping to find hot Greensboro hookups.
Cougar Life is a far more convenient way for older women to find what they’re looking for. And that makes it a prime spot for you to meet some amazing, mature ladies.
This app is perfect for single, older women interested in both younger and older men. It's also the easiest way to find men who like to keep things casual. Not only does this app give men the confidence to approach you online, but it hardly takes up any of your time.
When it comes to Greensboro hookup apps, Cougar Life consistently offers results. So why not sign up for the Cougar Life free trial? It’s a great way to find out if this app is right for you.
If you're looking for spots where you can get laid in Greensboro, head to The Corner Bar. Best known for its Tuesday Mug Nights where you can get a beer for only $1, this bar gives you the perfect place to meet fellow singles. This friendly and welcoming bar also features Rockstar Karaoke on Wednesdays and Live Music Thursdays. This is one of the best places to find hookups for locals and just a fun place to be.
Located on Spring Garden Street, this bar has been “teaching people to drink since 1990.” So whether you like beer or mixed drinks, you need to check this place out. They open at 3 p.m. and close at 2 p.m. But if you ask us, we’d say 10 p.m. is the best time to drop by.
Tinder can be a lot of fun, but it’s not for everyone. In fact, it tends to work only for the shallow and extremely hot. So where do you go if you’re not a perfect 10? Adult FriendFinder. With more than 90 million active users, this is hands down the most effective Greensboro hookup app we have found.
A lot of people come to us for recommendations on what app to try first and we usually tell them Adult FriendFinder. Having a ton of users who are completely focused on sex and an app that is extremely easy to use leads to getting good results. When even normal guys are getting good success you know you are in the right place.
This app repeatedly appears on our annual list of the best hookup apps. Not only is this site well established--it’s been around since 2006--but it actually works for normal guys, unlike the new sites that spring up and disappear within a year. Everyone we’ve talked to loves Adult FriendFinder for its down-to-earth approach to hookups.
Another advantage: Adult FriendFinder has a more diverse age range. AFF doesn't care if you're 23 or 33 or 53--it will find a match for you. So, if you’re over shallow hookup apps, this site is far more likely to serve up the results you want.
This establishment is as unique as its name. Located in downtown Greensboro, this “classy dive bar” has a low-pressure environment that entices the more chill single crowd.
Boasting more than 75 varieties of canned and bottled beer, The Bearded Goat also has a nice selection of wine and whiskey. They also host a pint night each Wednesday featuring North Carolina beers. Open from 4 p.m. to midnight during the week, and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, this place offers up some good drinks and great conversation.
If you’re looking for a like-minded single, hit The Bearded Goat after 9 p.m. during the week and after 10 p.m. on the weekends.
Now that you know our favorite Greensboro hookup bars, here are a few more places to find Greensboro hookups:
Known as the “Cheers of Downtown Greensboro,” Stumble Stilskins is a sports bar with a friendly and fun atmosphere. A great place to meet fellow singles, this bar serves up affordable drinks, craft beer and tasty burgers and wings.
While a sports bar may not seem like the best place to pick up a bed buddy, Stumble Stilskins offers far more than most traditional sports bars with its Monday bingo nights, Wednesday trivia nights and live music every weekend.
Drop by Market Street before they close at 2 a.m. and you’ll see why this is one of our favorite Greensboro hookup bars!
The Rocky Knoll is all about booze, bands and billiards. New to Greensboro’s bar scene--it opened in 2018--this establishment offers indoor cornhole, pool tables and karaoke. Open seven days a week, the Rocky Knoll attracts lots of singles, especially on Saturday nights when the bar plays host to some of the best bands in the region. With the live music, cheap drinks and plenty of singles, it's one of the best bars to get laid in Greensboro.
Saturday is likely your best night to hook up with a like-minded single, but karaoke Fridays are also promising. So rock out and impress that cutie at the bar before buying her a drink!
Tinder is one of the best Greensboro hookup sites for finding hot singles who want casual sex. Primarily for the under-30 crowd, Tinder has a ton of potential with a handful of drawbacks.
It’s not the site for everyone, though. Why? Competition on Tinder is intense. Lots of guys here compete for female attention, so unless you look like Chris Hemsworth or Shemar Moore, you’re likely to get passed over. Only the best looking guys are getting action on this Greensboro hookup site.
If you’re not the type of guy who turns women’s heads, why not check out our guide to creating the perfect Tinder profile? It might increase your chances of hooking up.
If you don’t resemble a Calvin Klein model, however, your chances of hooking up are probably pretty slim. And who wants to put in all of that effort on a hookup app for dismal results? The other apps we outlined above will give you a far better chance for some Greensboro hookups.
As for you, ladies, if you’re reasonably attractive, you can definitely find guys looking to hook up with you. As long as you’re not looking for a commitment of any kind, you should enjoy yourself immensely on Tinder.
Downtown Greensboro went through a ton of changes in the past decade. This thriving area now boasts an array of clubs and bars. You can literally walk from one to another, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase bar hopping. If you like dancing, try Limelight, the McGee Street Bar or the Artistika Nightclub. The Idiot Box Comedy Club, on the other hand, will have you laughing all night.
If you want to meet fellow singles for a weekend fling, Downtown serves up some of the best Greensboro hookups.
Hooking up does not necessarily mean you have to go to a bar. It means you have to go where your fellow singles are. Skip the Greensboro hookup sites for a day, and meet someone organically at The Corner Market. From fresh produce to choice meat cuts, this farmer’s market attracts a lot of visitors every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
Fresh fruits and vegetables always attract female shoppers, so who knows who you might meet in the produce section?
Check it out for yourself at the corner of Walker and South Elam Avenues in the Sticks and Stones parking lot this coming Saturday. You may just get lucky.
