Why are all the suggested places close much before midnight? I thought the poster asked for a place to hang out after a long night out.

Is the above correct and natural?
Thanks.

The last part doesn't make sense to me. If he/she wants to hang out, then presumably his/her long night out has not finished.

My suggestion:

I thought the poster asked for a place to hang out until the early hours.

Hi,

No. It seems to require a context. eg Is the poster a paper sign, or someone who is posting to a Forum?

Consider this. Why do all the places they suggested close early?

How about the above?

I mean a forum poster. Sorry for the confusion.

'Much before' is not really idiomatic. Possibly 'a long time before'.
