How about it's club scene? I've never heard anything about Seattle's Club scene.

Cities that stand out have good bars, clubs, and live music scenes....i.e. NOLA, NYC, SF, LA, Chicago, D.C., Atlanta, Miami, Vegas.
IMO, it's the way a city is laid out. Yeah every city has bar and restaurants, but some cities do it better than others.

BTW my criteria for socially active involves a bustling nightlife, large amount of singles who make their presence known, overall vibe of liveliness vs. reservedness and unbashful people, and chances of striking up random convos with strangers in public or being able to easily make new connections there.
San Diego is kind of weird. There isn't much nightlife, except for the drunken "bros" and "bro hoes" in the Gaslamp and along Garnet, but the beachy, outdoorsy crowd seems to make connections as does the intellectual bunch around UCSD. When I was single in SD I rarely went long without a date, which was unusual for me (I'm a guy).

There's no question New York is the social capital of the country.

I've found coastal large cities to be quite social, especially in warmer states. Cities in the interior, especially the farther in and colder, much less social.
