includes Night Clubs

Nightlife - pleasure-seeking activities at night, such as nightclubs, bars, piano bars, cocktail lounges, dance clubs and where to party around the world. Fun after the sun goes down. Wikipedia is developing an article on nightlife.  Some travel guides have a section on Nightlife.  Virtual Tourist has excellent nightlife coverage from real travelers.

The best way to find out about nightlife in a city is to use a search engine and type in <city name> + nightlife, example Bangkok Nightlife. Or use one of the other keywords to go with the city name such as cocktail lounges, nightclubs or night clubs, etc.  The terms nightguide or night guide are also popular on the web.
