Nightlife

Just more than a place to drink, they can be the social heart of a European community or neighborhood. Who hasn’t heard of a German Beirgarten, English or Irish pub. No matter what European country you are in, you will find a pub or some sort of establishment where locals go to talk sports, politics and more. For years these have been the gathering places for communities and a great place for a tourist to go observe and converse with the locals. Europe has many places where one can just sit to socialize with others, observe the world and its people go by or just sit and relax while having your favorite refreshment of choice.
In some places in Europe they call these pubs (for public houses). These are more than establishments in which to just go and drink in, over time they have become the social centers for villages and neighborhoods. A gathering place for politics, family functions, ceremonies, conducting business, community organizations and civil  endeavors. They may be called a brewery house, tavern, inn, brauhaus, or just a bar but, no matter what country your in or what name they’re called by, they perform same function.

 Legal Drinking Ages in Europe…Know the law…

The allowable age to drink may vary from the allowable age to purchase depending on the country. The age may to purchase on premise may be lower as opposed to off premise. Some countries may have a minimum age requirement for public and private consumption, some for just public consumption while some no minimum age for either public or private consumption. Some distilled beverages may require an older age to purchase as opposed to beer, wine and cider.

Nightlife Cities…

Nightlife is big in the major cities with entertainment for dancing, music, follies and sports viewing. For decades now Europe has been ideal location for young people, from across the globe, to strap on their backpacks and meet people and their cultures other than the ones they grew up with back home. With youth comes the energy to still go out in the evening after a long day of traveling and immerse oneself in the nightlife a city has to offer. Unlike the US the nightlife scene in Europe is more fashionable so don’t dress like a tourist. Avoid the jeans, tank tops and leggings, this isn’t a frat party or local bar. If you drink stay with a group and people you trust. Go back to the your accommodations with someone you know and never alone . Keep personal belongings and valuables secure and close to you. Pick pockets and thieves pry on the incoherent partiers who have had too much to drink and aren’t aware of their environment.

As well as Europe’s major cities, resort areas over the decades have become a mecca for young travelers attracted to the beaches. Night clubs and discotheques that cater to the young open anywhere from 10:00 pm and stay open till 5:00 am. These areas also have many youth hostels where one can sleep on the cheap and make new friends, when one finds time to sleep.
