I'd say 18-25. After that, you'll still want to go out, but you'll want to go to bars where you can actually hear yourself and order booze that actually tastes good. And you may well be in a serious relationship at that point.

Now save this statement to re-read when you turn 26! And again in your 30's! And again in your 40's!

You'd be quite surprised at what the older you may still like!

Tell me about it, with so many people getting married at a later age now, I would think it is okay if a 30 year old wants to party like a frat boy in college.

My parents are almost 60 and still prefer city life. They raised my brother and me in an inner-ring suburb for better schools, but they both work downtown, much of their social lives are in the city, and they're planning to move either back to that city or to DC as soon as my brother's done with school.

Every city is different.

Miami: 18-22
New York: 21-27
Boston: 23-30
DC: 25-30
Orlando: 30s
LA: 21-30

But then again its up to you... I know tons of 50+ year olds who bought places in big cities for ease of living. One of a family friend sold her home and moved next to Mass General for her older age. lol.

Basically between graduating college to having your first born kid (assuming you have kids). Then, once you become an empty nester, move back then. As you get older, some people either want more city life or less of it.

The bar/nightclub/nightlife scene here in Chicago, at least in the prime parts, definitely sees more mid to late 20 year olds and early 30's people than 18-22 years olds for sure (though on the north side by DePaul you do see more college bars/clubs, just not in the prime downtown area).

I like this post. "Primetime" in my opinion is probably after you work for a few years and have a little comfortability moneywise. 23-25 until 32ish. Something happens at this point in time where nearly everyone is married, and or trying to be, buying houses and move out of the city, or have kids. That being said there are no iron clad boxes in society and you can have fun in the city at any age, one could also never get married or have kids or choose to live in a tiny house and travel the country. But in general.
