If you think your bank account looks a little sad after a night out, you're not alone.
The average event-goer spends $81 on a night out and goes out two nights a week, according to an Eventbrite report. That's $162 a week more than the weekly median spending on food for American families.
Yet, how much it costs to go out depends on where you decide to hit the dance floor. That $81 can hike up quickly if you're in a notoriously expensive and popular party destination like Ibiza , Spain, but may become more wallet-friendly if you're in a city with a lower cost of living, like So Paulo, Brazil .
HomeToGo released a report on the best cities for nightlife around the world. After narrowing down 50 cities based on the number of venues, the number of events listed, and the quality of events based on online ratings, it contacted the five top-rated clubs in each city to find out each club's cover charge and drink prices.
Based on that data, HomeToGo calculated each city's average for the cover charge on a Saturday night, price of a 12-ounce domestically produced beer, price of one regular gin and tonic, and price of a one-ounce shot of vodka.
Turns out, Warsaw, Poland, is the most affordable city in Europe to go out, Perth is the most affordable Australian city to party, and Calgary, Canada, has the most affordable nightlife in the Americas.
Scroll through below to find how much it costs to go out in the cities with the best nightlife, ranked from most expensive to most affordable. All data is from 2018, the most recent year in which it was available.
