Nightlife

Nightlife includes bars, lounges, nightclubs, and party events.

Talk

As bars and nightclubs are frequented by younger, more globalized people, they are usually among the best places to find English-speakers. Don't expect too deep conversations late at night, though.

Buy

The revenue model of nightlife differs a lot between countries and venues. While some venues have a high cover charge (paid at entrance or at exit) others might be touted through discounts for newcomers. Some offer free entry but charge an arm and a leg for beverages.

Certain clubs sell costly membership cards, for a discount at subsequent visits.

Drink

While alcoholic beverages are the main attraction of nightclubs, each drink is usually more costly than the same drink at a restaurant.

Destinations

While the nightlife scene generally grows with city size, and most megacities and capitals have some decent nightclubs, a few destinations stand out for attracting, or deserving, party tourists from around the world.

Asia

Europe

North America

South America

Australia & Oceania

Stay safe

Nightlife is a high-risk activity. Except drunk brawls, this is where a traveller might encounter organized crime.
