I am living in a place that has a terrible nightlife since the introduction of laws to reduce alcohol-fuelled violence. The legislation requires 1.30am lockouts and 3 am last drinks at bars, pubs and clubs in the Sydney CBD entertainment precinct.

I am wondering what cities in your opinion have an amazing nightlife. I also want to know if ID is required to get into bars/clubs. In my opinion, the two cities with the best nightlife where I have been are:
1. Berlin
2.Montreal

Melbourne also has an amazing nightlife.

I was disappointed about SF and NYC’s nightlife.

Bangkok
Jakarta
Manila
Hong Kong
Rio de Janeiro

I can't think of anywhere in a western country that is so interesting...but if I was told that I must go for nightlife in a western country, I'd go with New Orleans in a mega-heartbeat.

But, I think Asia & Latin America is the best...

The cities with the best night life are the ones where people turn off the noise and let others sleep.

Yes, when all I can hear are possums on the roof and birds in the early morning I am happy!

However I was amazed at the nightlife in Catania in Sicily. A normal Saturday night was like New Years Eve in Sydney. But as they do not have a strong drinking culture it felt safe despite the crowds.

Latin America cities in general are well-known for the nightlife.
Parties that go until dawn are totally normal even in some small towns.

What qualities do cities with good nightlife have? Better bars/clubs? nocturnal inhabitants? everything staying opening later?

Bangkok, Amsterdam, and New Orleans would be my top 3.
I think Tampa and Kathmandu nightlife is underrated.
Cities like New York, Philadelphia, and Tokyo have plenty of nightlife, but prices are so high that I couldn't afford to partake.

Just came back from Tel Aviv, I think it ranks pretty well overall.

I think currently Bogota has the best gig culture of any city I've experienced a lot of musical movements being promoted and experimented with there.
