I mean, general nightlife would be LA obviously.
Seattle has pretty good nightlife - about on par for a city its size. It has 3 major nightlife districts (Capitol Hill, Ballard, and Belltown) and a number of other neighborhoods and nodes with nightlife (Pioneer Square, Fremont, Phinney/Greenwood, Alaska Junction, Lower Queen Anne, etc.) as well as neighborhood bars throughout the city.

In my opinion, LA and San Francisco are the two best cities for nightlife on the West Coast, which makes sense because they're the two largest metro areas. I can see why many would prefer LA, but I can also see why some would prefer SF.

I've heard SF's nightlife was fairly average....like it doesn't really stand out.

I totally disagree with that assessment. It's incredibly bar dense and has tons of great, walkable nightlife neighborhoods. It has a good variety of bars, from quirky dives to super high-end cocktail spots. There are plenty of clubs and places to go dancing, if that's what you're into. Overall I think SF can definitely hold its own against LA in terms of nightlife.

Capitol Hill is the hipster part of Seattle, no?

Lots of dive bars and whatnot?

Omitting Koreatown Los Angeles is weird as it's probably the closest to a 24 hour district on the West Coast. It has the widest variety of things to do late night and runs a wide gamut well outside of karaoke and soju and includes old dive bars to newer lounges.

This thread was started about a year and a half ago. Almost 2 years ago now. It's crazy that honestly I would change my vote from WeHo/Hwood to DTLA if we were to revote on this poll. To me, that's how much progress DTLA has made in such a short amount of time. If anything, WeHo/Hwood and DTLA are equal IMO.

Seattle really has the second best nightlife area? Interesting.

I did notice a kind of varied nightlife out there. Unfamiliar with where I was specifically though. Queen Anne possibly.

Yes it would likely be considered one of the more "hipster" neighborhoods of Seattle.
It has a lot of dive bars, but at this point in time, it has just about everything (night clubs, lounges, upscale bars, restaurants, etc.)

Overall I'd say it's WeHo/Hollywood, but I think Ballard is being underrated here. If you like a lot of bars and restaurants close together, Ballard (Seattle) is pretty great. I also think the Mission District in SF is being underrated - it is an awesome nightlife neighborhood across the board.
