    Considering the first night we spent in Barcelona resulted in a bag getting stolen, you would think I wouldn’t have the best things to say about it. On the contrary – I couldn’t agree more with it’s placement.

      Hah, it’s true that even people who get robbed in Barcelona still love Barcelona 😀 I met a guy there who had just taken out 500 Euros and then put his wallet on the table at a cafe, someone came up and pretended to be selling books swiped his wallet off the table. He was pretty annoyed – but he still loved Barcelona!

    Nice list but i would kick out Munich and put in Hamburg instead 😉 Spain is awesome for partying!

      Thanks for the comment Steve. I haven’t been to Hamburg myself, why would you recommend it? Any pubs/clubs/streets that you can recommend to readers in particular that are the best for partying backpackers?

    Newcastle over London ANY day for the UK. London is ridiculously over-priced, not to mention fairly sketchy, whereas Newcastle is a buzzing student city, affordable, and full of the friendliest people in the UK – the Geordies!

    Gdansk in Poland is another great city to party in, too. Vodka shots for under one pound and a stunning location.

      Heya Tom! Awesome tips there, good to throw something a bit different into the mix instead of the usual big city fare 😀 I hear funny things about “northerners” from Londoners haha, I’m sure many of them would disagree 😉 Brighton is another city in the UK that has a vibrant night life due to those partying students. Thanks for adding value to the post!

    Not really sure where else to ask this and you seem very knowledgable — what do you think about the safety of clubs in Europe? Are roofies very common? Obviously “be careful” but clubbing somewhere where you don’t know the language and European men are known for hitting on younger girls! What do you think, how worried should I be?

      Hey Alice. Clubs in Europe are just as safe as clubs in USA, Canada, Australia etc. The same rules apply, as in, don’t leave your drink unattended and use common sense (don’t get obliterated to the point where you have no idea what you’re doing and where you are). Go with some new friends at the hostel or that you’re travelling with. I would not be worried at all!

      I think every city in Europe has the potential for an awesome party – Budapest didn’t make my personal list but I hear good things from others (I have been there – and have fond memories of hot mulled wine in a cosy pub whilst it was freezing outside).

    In my opinion there are much better cities in Europe to party than Paris not in this list (Budapest, Warsaw, Prague…)

      I think every large city in Europe has the potential for an amazing party 😉 Budapest/Prague are top contenders, but more and more “stag parties” take their toll.

      You’re right! Paris is overrated. From the cities you listed I would rank them: 1. Warsaw, 2. Prague, 3. Budapest. Warsaw is really a modern city with this legendary night club (New orleans) – I’ve been there to a stag party and this is the night I remember although it is hard:). Prague and Budapest a little bit more calm, but also magical.

    Anyone going to Paris must go to the Bastille section. Great nightlife and clubs, always packed with college students.

    I can’t believe you missed out the greatest party city in the world – BELGRADE (Serbia)!

    There are huge range of clubs in Belgrade, from indie, rock, metal to techno, house and ‘turbofolk’ (Serbian & Turkish folk mixed with techno and house) and everything else in between, and bars and pubs everywhere. The best place in summer is the floating clubs and bars (splavovi) on the Danube. There are even coffee houses and burek shops (think a greasier version of a pasty) everywhere for that hangover the next morning!

    And the best thing about Belgrade – its cheap! In most bars especially out of the flashy area you can expect to pay around £1-£1.50 for a 0.5L beer and food and other drinks are really cheap too for westerners! Has been voted best nightlife capital in Europe many times over!

    I pop bottles in London several times a year. It is rather posh for an old, fat fellow like myself

    For me one of the best party destinations in Europe is Warsaw in Poland. It is truly an amazing city, so diverse that it is impossible not to find something for yourself. And the clubs there are really great. The one that is my personal favorite is New Orleans Club. It is a club for men, very elegant and high-end. I love everything about that place – from sexy dancers to delicious drinks

      I’ve been there too! The greatest corporate event I’ve been to 😀 New Orleans knows what men need. The dancers are just perfect, it was a pleasure just looking at them. Can’t wait to go back there.
