Up All Night is a compilation album by Nile Rodgers and The Chic Organization, released in 2013. It contains recordings written, played and produced by Rodgers and Bernard Edwards for various artists including Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, Sheila & B. Devotion, Deborah Harry, Norma Jean Wright, Carly Simon, Johnny Mathis and their own group Chic. In its original form, the album included every UK Top 40 hit single produced by Chic, excepting remixes. The Johnny Mathis track was widely publicised as being previously unreleased, though it had in fact appeared on Mathis' own Ultimate Collection CD in 2011.

The album was released in the UK and Europe at a time when interest in Rodgers and CHIC was high for various reasons: the publication of Rodgers' autobiography in 2011, the appearance of BBC television and radio documentaries about him, the popularity of his collaboration with Daft Punk, "Get Lucky" (which is referenced in the compilation's title and sleeve art), and a series of acclaimed live performances including one televised from the Glastonbury Festival on the weekend before the album's release.

Most of the tracks featured are 12" versions and are mastered to match the pitch and tempo of the original vinyl releases; this resulted in some tracks having slightly shorter running times than on other CD issues.

Up All Night reached number 2 in the UK Compilation Albums Chart for the week ending 13 July 2013.
