Rondel Village Negril beachfront hotel is a short distance from the nightlife but offers a quiet retreat for the morning after hangover.

Koh Samui, Thailand

Koh Samui hosts a great choice of nightlife entertainment options. Ground Zero of nightlife on Samui is Chaweng which features a myriad of lounge clubs, naughty bars, beach bars, and discos, it is definitely the place to have fun at night. Check out the Ark Bar Beach Resort which is almost an institution in Samui. Located right on the beach, in the central area of Chaweng, this beachside resort, restaurant, bar and nightclub describes itself as the one-stop party destination in the prime holiday destination in Samui Island - and this description could not be more accurate. Featuring 300 rooms right by the sand, Ark Bar Beach Resort is not really recommended for those in search of peace and relaxation as most of the people coming and/or staying there have only one goal: party ‘til they drop. With two beachfront restaurants, and three swimming pools with two swim-up bars, the place has been designed for party animals. DJs, live music, fire shows, and pool parties are part of the daily program at Ark Bar.


 A long-established fun vacation destination that is perfect for binge drinking, Tenerife offers a wide variety of clubs and bars to suit all tastes. It is also nice and cheap for those on a budget. Accommodation, such as the H10 Costa Adeje Palace Hotel, markets itself towards the younger binge drinkers out there and offers great value for money.

Rio De Janeiro 

Sultry, seductive Rio de Janeiro sways to the rhythm of samba and pulsates with a wanton multiethnic vibe. The city provides untold opportunity for delicious excess, from the sexy shores of Ipanema to a feral nightlife, flamboyant festivals and a candid, open culture.

Rio de Janeiro is synonymous with Carnaval, the foremost event in the world to mark the advent of Lent. Held in February, four days prior to Ash Wednesday, the phantasmagorical parade draws millions. Not for the bashful, the theatrical revelry of Carnaval is overtly profane.

Other than Carnaval, December 31 is Rio's time to party. The city's beaches explode with brilliant fireworks displays, as millions usher in the New Year.

Drinking and Eating go hand in hand in Rio De Janeiro with many informal Copacabana restaurants doubling as bars so soak up the alcohol with a few light munchies rather than a main meal. From live music, nightclubs, bars, concerts to street parties and so much more, you will see how much the nightlife in Rio de Janeiro has to offer. You name it, Rio has it!

New Orleans


The central hub of tourist interest in New Orleans is without a doubt, the French Quarter. The famous district is home to iconic Bourbon Street, the node of Mardi Gras revelry and notable party spot.

The premier Mardi Gras celebration in North America is what New Orleans is famous for. A number of pre-Lent events that begin in January culminate with the massive party and parade on Mardi Gras, held in the French Quarter sometime between February or early March.

New Orleans is a fantastic drinking town. Many argue the best in the world. Unfortunately, the perception that many have of New Orleans is that everyone goes to Bourbon Street, gets blackout drunk, and loses all control of their faculties. Sure, there are people who regularly do that in the Big Easy; we call them tourists.

There's no doubt that the nightlife in New Orleans is true to its reputation as one of America’s premiere cites for fun and leisure and one that will not disappoint.


Located in Australia, Sydney offers the perfect combination of sun, sea and alcohol for any binge drinking weekend. You can combine all three if you wish. Hotels like the The Westin Sydney are perfect for binge drinking weekends because they appreciate the fun that most individuals are looking for in a binge drinking getaway.
