Exploring and enjoying nighttime escapades are a fantastic way to bond with old friends and to meet new ones while taking in the local culture. Cities and towns show an exciting part of their character after the sun sets, and the people come out to play and socialize, revealing the secret heart of a travel adventure.


See the Nightlife to Illuminate Your Travel Adventure

When you are visiting the world’s largest and most sophisticated cities, smaller urban areas, or towns and villages, the chances are excellent that there is a venue to experience the night with convivial company in a bar, pub, or nightclub.

“Part of the personal growth that comes from travel means trying new things.”

Sample SangSom rum in Bangkok, a Jaeger Bomb in Berlin, or Witblits in Johannesburg and drink life in, to the fullest.


Find Your Venue and Find Your Community.

Whatever your travel style, whether you are taking a trip with family and friends, meeting old pals to reconnect, or engaging with new compatriots as a solo traveler, one of the best ways to find your community is by discovering the city’s nightlife. People often come to the lounge, pub, bar, or dance club to open up and relax. It’s a way to enjoy a well-rounded approach to the travel experience.

The golden mean, in the Aristotelian view, embodies the perfect balance. Tours of historical sites, visits to architectural wonders, pilgrimages to institutions of higher learning, or explorations of the natural ecosystem all have their place, but they are made even more glorious when you take some time to relax and recharge and see how the locals, ex-pats, visitors, and travelers have fun. Partaking of the nightlife is an edifying and authentic part of the journey. As has been said, in vino veritas, or “in wine lies the truth.”

How to Select Your Spot

Set your nighttime adventure by the stars. The entertainment stars, that is. So you are passionate about live jazz performance? Desire to dance the night away? Dream of viewing live theater while drinking and dining? Determined to hear your favorite guitar hero solo? Know that with research and recommendations, you can combine your love of the arts and entertainment with some serious fun. Check to see what is on offer in the area where you’re traveling, or you can choose your travel adventure in conjunction with the event that ignites your passion.

Some people use the night scene as the fulcrum around which their whole travel experience turns. Experience the best of entertainment, from the world’s biggest art festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland to the techno Awakenings Festival in Spaarnwoude, Netherlands.

Hitting the Strip

In many cities and towns, there is an entertainment district where you will discover a profusion of eateries, bars, and clubs. It can be a great idea to sample several venues by taking a night tour, going on an organized pub crawl, or simply strolling through the entertainment arena. Whether you are slipping in and out of cocktail lounges in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, hitting the cantinas and bars in the Roma area in Mexico City, sipping red wine and enjoying conversation in Palermo, Argentina, dancing in Cape Town, South Africa, or enjoying a cocktail in a moon-lit lounge in Honolulu, see where your peregrinations take you.

Maybe you want to discover an upscale single-malt whiskey and cigar bar, a premier pub, a bodacious beer garden, or a sensational rooftop lounge with a stellar view of the city atop of a 5-star hotel? What about a wine tour or a techno music dance club? Find your happy place by asking the concierge at your hotel, checking out travel magazines, researching online, asking friends where they’ve enjoyed visiting, scoping out the entertainment guide of the area that you’re touring, or you can engage with the travel experts at Elamant Travel to custom design an itinerary that will have you getting the most pleasure from your holiday fun when the sun goes down, and the action heats up.


Sharing the nightlife illuminates the adventure. Whether you’re meeting old friends or making new ones, it’s the company that you keep, the sense of discovery, and the opportunity to learn more about your world, as you lift a glass, that’s intoxicating.
