Sie können sich ein Gläschen genehmigen, bevor Sie sich zur Ruhe begeben/für die Nacht zurückziehen


Explanation:
There are many possibilities, and a lot would depend on the target audience. Tucking in means going to bed, actually, to be very precise, being put to bed (by a parent, who then tucks in the blankets around you...)

If you want to be very poetic, you could say "in Morpheus' Armen wiegen"
