Which city has the best nightlife in the world?
1. Amsterdam, Netherlands

Some of the best areas in Amsterdam for nightlife include the Red Light District, Amsterdam Central, Rembrandtplein Square, and Leidseplein Square. Clubbers are in for a treat, as most nightclubs have 24-hour licences, which means you can dance all day, and all night. Our favourite Amsterdam clubs are OT301, Radion, and De School.
2. Mexico City, Mexico
Mexico City has some of the best nightlife in Latin America, let alone Mexico. There are three main party neighbourhoods; Condesa, Polanco, and Roma Norte. Most clubs don’t get going until at least 2 am, but you will be greeted with incredible tacos when you do stumble out of the club in the morning.

Berlin is one of the best nightlife cities in the world. The nightlife here is diverse, exciting, and surprising, from progressive, rebellious spots to traditional Bavarian bars and pulsating warehouse nightclubs.

It has many bars, clubs, and pubs lining the waterfront.

Busy, chaotic, and crowded, Bangkok is also one of the best places in the world for an unforgettable debaucherous night out.
