Cities Around the World with the Best Nightlife

No matter what age you are or where you live in the world, sometimes you just need to cut loose.  Whether you prefer intimate jazz clubs, all night dance parties, or the perfect martini, these cities offer something for everyone in terms of nightlife and entertainment.


As with much of Italy, Rome doesn’t really come alive until late.  Before going out, you have an infinite number of late night dining choices.  Then around 11pm or so, you can go to the local wine bar, Il Piccolo, for people watching or hop over to Gregory’s for some whiskey and jazz.


Bangkok is renowned for being a wild place to party where there’s always some sort of trouble you can get in to.  However, for more relaxed late night fun, you can go to the Sky Bar, which offers fantastic views of the city while you enjoy a martini.

Tel Aviv

Similar to Rome, Tel Aviv is also a city where the party doesn’t begin until around midnight. To start your evening, try Nanutchka or Saloona, the latter of which can be found towards the outskirts of the city and is popular with the locals for its easy-going atmosphere and lavish décor.

Buenos Aires

This city gets rolling later than most with the crowds hitting the bars from 1am until about 6am.  If tango dancing is your passion, then you’ve really come to the right place.  However, if you’d rather watch tango than participate, then the Rojo Tango club is an ideal place for dinner, a show, and live music.

New Orleans

If you consider yourself a foodie or a jazz junkie (or even if you don’t), then you need to party in New Orleans.  Bourbon Street and the French Quarter are the prime locations to locate some of the best Cajun food and jazz musicians that Louisiana – actually, the world – has to offer.


While beautiful by day, Paris is much more interesting once it gets dark.  There’s an endless amount of boutique bars where you can sip wine and people watch.  And of course, there’s always the Moulin Rouge if you’re looking for something a little more adventurous.

New York City

With a nickname like “the city that never sleeps”, you can find a good time and a great slice of pizza anytime of the day or night in New York City.  Here you’ll also find some of the best mixologists in the world, so get adventurous with your pallet at bars like Pouring Ribbons or the Experimental Cocktail Club.
