Roanoke Island nightlife and events have the advantage of flourishing in the cozy community of Manteo. Locals are friendly, the venues fun and the events are full of energy and entertainment. You can find Roanoke Island events happening almost every night in the summer months, and they stay fairly constant during the other seasons as well. Roanoke Island nightlife centers on the arts. With plays, productions, book signings and plenty of live music, you’ll start to feel like you’re living in an artsy district of a big city. Check out The LC (The Lost Colony) to see a dramatic representation of the first settlers on Roanoke Island and how they mysteriously disappeared. On certain nights, you can even enjoy a dinner with the play’s characters. Several local theater troupes, including the high school drama department (their productions are fantastic!) filled with talented volunteers also put on popular productions throughout the year that make for a ready night of entertainment.

If you’re visiting the area toward the beginning of a month, you definitely don’t want to miss Manteo’s First Friday Festivals. Stroll through Manteo’s waterfront downtown as you peruse local vendors, galleries, artisans’ fares and listen to live music. What isn’t there to like?

And speaking of music, Roanoke Island events do an excellent job of bringing bands and solo musicians to restaurants, outdoor venues, festivals and marinas in Manteo and Wanchese. Some are big — Jefferson Starship, Led Zeppelin and Beatles cover bands, Journey! But this is also a great chance to listen to some local music — maybe you’ll even discover your new favorite genre! In fact, Manteo events can now boast a summertime festival of big name country singers in the Island Opry! Check out the link below to see where and how you can enjoy Manteo's nightlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning Brian!

We finally arrived this early this morning about 4am! My partner is a dentist and we had emergencies that came in late that we had to take care of before leaving. Then on hwy 64, I had fallen asleep, and forgot to tell her that we needed to fill up with gas before getting on 64, so we ran out of gas! 😂😂

Thankfully, we were able to get gas from the boat we were pulling and made it to a nearby gas station!

We parked the boat and trailer at the landing across from pirates cove.

After this horrible trip here, it was nice to arrive at your home to find it cozy for some much needed rest.

Wanted to update you on a couple things about your home. First off. It is lovely and will definitely get 5 stars. We have two dental practices and understand how reviews are very important. The location is perfect for what we were looking for for our trip this week.

But to update you and make sure you were aware. There were no dish rags or hand towels in the kitchen. I am running out to the store in a little while and will buy a few that I will leave here for future guests. Also, we found that it was very very clean.

Thank you thank you for sharing your home this weekend and responding so quickly to our needs when booking!

Very nice

Very nice.... well... Make that exceptionally well furnished and supplied. Everything worked and was in exceptional, or new condition. The unit is everything advertised, and very quiet. We loved it, and even with the 18-19 hour round trip, we'll be coming back

Excellent location, close to pool & tennis courts, and very clean. Hope to return next year.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Pirates Cove Resort, We brought our 14ft boat and used the boat slip right outside our unit. We were fishing and crabbing each morning and in the pool in the afternoon....what a wonderful time we had. I want to thank Brian for giving us the time and hospitality of staying at his condo. If ever planning to vacation on Roanoke Island or the Outer Banks this is the place to stay.

Great condo - in the perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

I returned to the Outer Banks for the 1st time in 20 years, and was excited to stay at Pirates Cove. The condo is in a great location, convenient both within the community, and the OBX. The pool and tennis Courts were right beside us, they offered activities for the kids and adults. No trouble with noise at night. if you have a chance, the trip towards Hatteras for an Apple Ugly at the Orange Blossom Bakery is highly recommended.

Brian was very attentive to a couple small issues we had - great owner!. We look forward to doing business with him again.

My family of 4 stayed out this 2 level condo in Pirates Cove on Roanoke Island. The unit was very nice with comfortable beds, very close to the tennis courts and pool. I would stay here again in the future.
