It is great in its own way but when you have traveled to a number of cities, you start to realize that it should have more for a city of its size and that cities with a similiar population have more to offer.

Once again, I am not saying that the nightlife in Houston totally sucks.

Houston is not a concentrated city why would you expect the nightlife to be concentrated.

I mean if Houston was neat and compact would be plausible for the nightlife to be concentrated, but I think a lot of people are thankful that the nightlife is spread around so that people can have fun in pockets all around the city

The fact that alot of black celebs constanly visit and party here in Houston. And the fact that XXL magazine named it one of the best Top 10 cities for Blacks. I would say Houston isn't lacking as much as what it has to offer then other cities when it comes to 20 something african american males/females. I don't know how you know what cities I've been to but I've been to and experience the nightlife in a couple of cities across the nation.

1.Atlanta(numerous times)
2.DFW(wayyy too many times I could remember not to mention I use to stay in Dallas plenty of summers)
3.Chicago
4.Detroit
5.San Fransico-Oakland
6.NYC
7.7 cities of VA
8.New Orleans
9.Austin
10.Baltimore
11. Cincinnati
12.Oklahoma City
13.Shreveport,LA
14.Memphis
15.Hartford,CT
15.St.Louis
16.Dayton,OH
17.Denver
18.Waco
19.Louisville
20.Jacksonville,FL
21.Birmingham,AL
22.Baton Rogue,LA
23.Beamount,TX
24.Killeen,TX

Now these are cities that I've been to where I actually experienced the nightlife..some cities I've done it several times. Enough time to get a vibe of what the night life is like constantly. Some maybe just once the weekend. Out of that whole list of the places I experienced night life..besides Atlanta,NYC,Chicago..I would say Houston has much more to offer then the other cities I've been to. And I even feel that Houston nightlife scene is more poppin then Chicago. Chicago over the years has fallen off a bit on the nightlife and esp. the club scene aint what it use to be when I use to visit in the late 90's/early 00's. The Bay Area had a ok nightlife but for a area it's size I felt it could have been alot better. Denver,Cinny,Ok City,Louisville are ghost towns for real. And you talk about a city for it's size should offer better nightlife go take a trip to Denver if you haven't already. I don't want to go skiing in the mountains at night time. Baton Rogue,Birmingham,Jacksonville, were all fun places for me but it didn't have a variety of nightlife choices outside of hood type parties. I enjoyed Memphis alot but doesn't have as much variety. Waco was just boring unless you were a Baylor student and even then that was pushing it. Detroit was cool but it doesn't leave you with alot of options, kinda depressing. Same with St.Louis..Hartford was ok..New Orleans is great for out of towners but I could see myself getting tired of FQ. The club scene outside of FQ is cool but it aint up to par with Houston level. DFW has a popping club scene. But I kinda agree w/ some Atlanta ppl that visit the city. It's like a baby Atlanta and I've never heard them downground Houston nightlife on such a level. But I could careless what a Atl native has to say. Austin has alot to offer for other crowds. Has little to offer as far as hip-hop crowds or black crowds. And I like Austin but I wouldn't rush to it unless I wanted to see mad drunk ppl on the streets.

I've never been to Miami or D.C. or L.A. but I would imagine they have pretty extensive nightlifes for my type of crowd. But you have Chicago, Atlanta,NYC,Miami,D.C.,L.A.,Houston,DFW. Houston to me is easily one of the top spots for 20 somethings in America. They have one of the most popular club web-sites (indmix.com) and not to mention I always hear Houston mentioned in several hip-hop/r&b songs and it aint for the job market and affordable house prices. I would even say outside of Atlanta, NYC,LA,Miami, Houston would be the 5th destination for black entertainers. You can downplay it all you want but it's alot more that's not downplaying Houston's night life

I respect your post Redlionjr, but....

As a black person, I could care less what other blacks like or do.

Cool that's your opinion. Me I do because I happen to like to go to spots where the crowds and I have similar taste and I can feel comfortable and amongst my peers.
