America's Best Cities for Nightlife

Are they noisy, or just a really good time? Travel + Leisure readers voted on which cities can crank up the nightlife.

17 of 21

This oil town has a long history of hard-partying honkytonks, but today's business-friendly city has developed a more sophisticated approach. On Washington Avenue, you can find all-organic cocktails, "skinny" margaritas, and all manner of beer. And after drinking up, you can stumble onto the Washington Wave, a jitney that offers safe rides for a nominal fee. AFC readers were even happier to enjoy Houston on a full stomach: it ranked first for burgers and fifth for barbecue.
