School’s back in session, and you’re hitting the books hard. But when you’ve been studying all evening, you can work up an appetite real easily—especially if you didn’t eat earlier. Don’t worry, though. There are plenty of excellent spots near the University of Alaska-Anchorage that serve food late into the night. 

1. Blue Fox Cocktail Lounge, Anchorage, AK

You wouldn’t know it from the name, but the Blue Fox Cocktail Lounge has a full menu of appetizers, burgers, hot and cold sandwiches, and baskets. Better yet, the kitchen is open until 1 a.m. The steak sandwich and bacon cheese burger are both awesome choices, blden ut it’s hard to go wrong with the halibut and chips basket.
