I live in butt fuck nowhere michigan, if you want to do something you gotta be 21+ since the only things open are bars unless you drive 1hr minimum to kalamzoo (closest city)
It was perfect in 2021, no one in the streets I could drive like an animal and have my adrenaline dose. 10/10.
Nowadays it's boring, people everywhere, big groups of people always ruin fun things, I think I'm sharing this Earth with too many humans
I wouldn't know, night is for sleeping and that's what I do at night
Out of every major global city (let's say 3m+) that isn't in the middle east (since we're talking about nightlife), I'm confident that Sydney has the worst nightlife by FAR.
There is one club in my city and it sucks. Almost no bars and some are notorious for being nazi hotspots.
I dont even go out, the only time i leave my home is when i go to study in a close neighborhood
but i guess nightlife in Rio is probably good, its a big city like any other. Also a city with many contrasts, so it probably has more elitist sides and more popular sides i guess xD
8/10. live in a college town so there is always something to do at night
8/10, pretty beautiful, lot's of pubs and clubs.
Madrid 10/10, best in Spain.
You can party every day, there is always something. And there is a brutal amount of clubs with different music, prices, people, etc.
Small village in southern bavaria 10/10 no junkies, no foreigners, just peace, silence and cows
Some bars, 1 club for kids (16-22), 1 club who grew up a little more (23+), 1 metal club and thats about all i can recall.
But we have locations for concerts of almost any size (which suits my interstes a lot) and good connections to neighbouring cities. :)
1/10 small town always the same people. One club for like 18-20yo, two pubs and like 3 places for old ass people / alcoholics
Cool sirens every night very nice vibe here.
i live in a tiny town in Iceland with two bars 2/10
Amsterdam good nightlife, I would also like to know more about the underground scene in Stockholm.
Used to be one of the coolest cities in the world, now it's so expensive only high tech workers live here. There are some cool clubs and cool music venues but most of the population are 35 year old boring nerds. Still especially for tourists there are enough intresting and unique places to carry a decent scene, I was never denied an entrance to a club even for clubs for 24+ when I was too young (but above 18) I would always enter.
8/10 but on a sharp decline
I have lived in 2 countries for very long, and no I'm not biased:
Auckland - New Zealand: 3/10
Nightlife is quite bad, most things close at either 6pm or 9pm, and everything is pretty far away so it takes you very long to get to where you want to go (and I live very close to the city on the North Shore) and everything is very expensive. The buses are a pain as well, they aren't very frequent and there are very few lines that take you to wherever you want to go. The drinking culture is very stupid, people only drink to get wasted (they don't know how to drink and enjoy) plus most people's alcohol tolerance is pretty low, aand you can't drink outside on the streets, on benches, on the beach etc... like wtf? Socialising is quite hard because many people are quite closed off and cold, as well as there being waay too many different ethnicities, it makes it difficult to be yourself. The city isn't very safe at night as well, or at least I don't feel the saftest, especially on Queen street and K Road. Last thing, the weather is horrible as it rains basically every day.
Skopje - Macedonia: 9.5/10
Nightlife is amazing, nothing closes before 12am, and even when those places do close, others open literally at 12am till 4 or 5 am like clubs with live bands or discos. Since this city is quite small, everything is very close by so you can either walk or bus pretty quickly. There are like 10 bakeries, 15 cafes, 10 restaurants, 4 clubs and pubs, 3 malls, 7 pharmacies, 3 schools all within like a 3 km radius. The buses are also very frequent and we have so many bus lines, it's literally impossible to wait for more than 10mins to catch a bus (there are exactly 7 lines that take you to the city from where I live). Everything is very cheap, and everywhere you go is full with people no matter which part of the day or night it is. Drinking culture is very good here, lots of options in terms of spirits plus we have Rakija (between 45 to 60 percent alcohol). You don't see as many drunks as in Auckland because people know how to drink and how to properly socialise. 80% of the city is completely safe to walk, even for a single girl at midnight. The only thing to be weary about is how much taxi drivers can charge you, they can rip you off. Last thing, the weather is amazing as it rains basically once a month. It can be very hot during summer and very cold during winter though.
The city at night is gorgeous. I only go to raves, and psytrance parties lately, there are plenty options for those week after week in Budapest, 10+ venues\clubs to attend to.
For not so undergroundish EDMs it's the same, but I haven't been there for ages. For other popular genres like rock, metal, indies as well. Bars, ruin pubs etc. are literally in every corner and the safety at night is okay, I never had any atrocities, except for gypsies and some drunk idiots, so I'd say 10/8
E: the prices are good imo, especially for foreigners, talked to many of them at bars etc.
London rlly good but I live like a 1hr30min train away from central. The town I actually live in isn't even worth going outside there is nothing good and there is an 80% chance someone will try and mug you if you are on your own.
I sleep at night to wake up fresh and ready for new adventures
I live in a city with less than a 100k people. There are like 3 clubs but they all suck. I am like 30-45 minutes away from the 4 biggest cities in the Netherlands so there is always fun to be had.
Manchester is supposed to be the 2nd best night out in the UK behind Newcastle.
has like 3 or 4 bars and pubs, and 1 club if im not mistaken
the bars are ok-ish and pretty mid, the club sucks ass
if i drive for two hours i can find a club
there's a bar 1km from my house though
very quiet, lots of fishing
student life is blooming, lots of bars, you can have a lot of fun
8/10. Has a lot of great clubs. Alcohol is kind of cheap if you compare it to other countries/places and is not hard to make friends. The only problem is it has too many tourists, what is annoying cause they get too drunk and don't respect anything
Im not in a big city.. im 30mn away from Paris, does it count ?
But for my place there is not a lot of stuff to do at night, you have to go somewhere else
I wonder what a bunch of awkward nerds on this site would be doing in a nightclub lmao
my nightlife is 10/10, sleeping is the best part of day usually
Days with 10/10 nightlife are long gone , in my city and any city from any part of the world . People are cringe nowdays .
7/10, has alot of bars which is quite cool, but only couple of clubs, still good overall
10/10 nightlife in a small town, getting 8h of sleep with no interruptions or noise outside, just pure peace and quiet 😌
10k pop city, I live like 700m away from the centre, so it's quiet. 10/10
500 souls village, im the only one walking around here at night, love it.
next small town is 4km but only party on weekend
- lots of bars and clubs, options
- if you don't like actual DC, there are bars nearby in the DMV such as in Bethesda, MD or Arlington, VA
- endless amounts of people going out, you never run into the same person
- compared to the glitzier US cities, way more ugly people (Government workers, bureaucrats)
- almost as expensive as NYC
- too political for my tastes (women are aggressive and will aggressively ask you about politics)
I think some places in Canada do have a good nightlife scene. I just don't go outside enough to know if it's true or not
greece/athens : 10/10 you can find everything
8/10, Santiago isn't a really big city compared to other capitals, so you can go to different places without losing time, and that offer a lot options of what you can do: different kinds of bars and clubs.
I could complain about the prices, because even the (once) cheaper places are becoming really expensive now, but i guess that's happening everywhere.
There is no way you even put "6/10" on any nightlife in any city in Sweden, we have like 0 nightlife compared to other countries. One of the few things i really hate about Sweden
Colchester very boring mix of military and uni town, lots of fighting
come to liverpool, only nightclub for gays
paris would be a 10 but the people make it a 3
0/8 u WILL get robbed at gunpoint
Moscow is 10/10 tbh, half of the venues are open all night, you can always find something for your taste and your finances, some small stores do sell alcohol after midnight, a lot of 24/7 stores in general where you can grab some water or food, a lot of beautiful parks and boulevards, downtown is super walkable at night and there's night bus routes that will let you get from downtown to any "sleeping neighborhood"
also local music and girls are crazy, best or second best in the country (depends on who u ask)
