When exploring a new place, museums, restaurants and sightseeing seem to be on top of one’s to-do list. However, you most likely cannot fully discover a city with its locals if you leave out nightlife from that very list. So, what better way to dive into that particular city’s atmosphere than having a chat (and probably getting drunk!) in one of the local bars there? And since bars are the spots in a city where locals get together at the end of a working day to socialize then it’s a must to grab the opportunity to act and feel as one of them even for 1 day.

Nevertheless, in order to help you avoid accidentally finding yourself in the centre of a bar packed only with tourists, Spotted by Locals provides a list of best cities with night bars open until early in the morning.

Buxsa Bar (Tel Aviv)

When it comes to diversity in art and music Tel Aviv has a lot to offer. This underground bar in Tel Aviv is not only famous for its rich menu of delicious food and drinks but also for its special interior filled with various kinds of dolls, scary ones as well!). On top of it, what makes this bar one of the best places to hang out is the constantly changing genres of music that never fail to challenge and surprise the audience.

Drone (Copenhagen)

In spite of being quite new Drone is the number 1 place in Copenhagen if you want to have the cheapest beer, socialize with people in unisex toilets and be able to smoke inside. In addition to DJ sets you can also enjoy live performances here until 5 in the morning!

Corsica Studios (London)

This London night bar has an atmosphere that is typical for Berlin clubs. Not only can you enjoy different genres of music (mostly techno and electronic though) until 06:00 on Fridays and Saturdays but you can also enjoy the drinks there for very reasonable prices. And the latter should be highly appreciated considering the fact that you’re in London!

Transport (Rotterdam)

If you are looking for a night full of minimal techno music in a small basement then you should head to Transport right away. This is by no means a fancy club, so do not expect people to be dressed up here. Moreover, this spot is not very well known yet, which gives it even more of a charm and makes Transport one of the spots you don’t wanna miss out on in Rotterdam.

La Java (Paris)

This bar in Paris first opened in 1923 and until today has kept most of its historical charm even after being renovated. La Java makes it possible to party until 6 in the morning every day for those of us who prefer going out late at night.

Barrett Club – Disagio (Florence)

This speakeasy in Florence has no signs or anything that will make it visible on the street. It’s like a hidden gem that locals go to and stay until early in the morning or just arrive in the early morning after all the other clubs have closed. However, make sure you don’t spend a lot of money on cocktails here as the quality will probably not be worth it (stick to bottled drinks).

Batman (Athens)

What makes this bar special is that you have to wait until 23:00 for it to open. First of all, it is absolutely normal to sit next to a Greek musician while having a beer in this bar. Hence, having hosted some of the greatest live performances in Athens, you never know what surprise this bar may have in store for you this time.

Opium (Edinburgh)

Opium is a dark rock n roll club that has 2 different floors. While the first one tends to be more laid-back with places to sit down and pool tables, the 2nd floor is the place to bang your head to Rammstein. The playlist doesn’t really change. So if clubbing to heavy metal music is your thing then Opium is the place to be when in Edinburgh!

Fasching’s Club Soul (Stockholm)

And finally, we close the list of best cities for bars with Stockholm. At Fasching’s Club Soul you can dance with a stranger to jazz music until 04:00 without feeling awkward. This club is full of people whose only aim is dancing until you can’t feel your feet anymore.

What are your favorite nightclubs, the ones were you can greet the dawn of the next day?
