Ibiza | Spain

You can’t name the best summer party destinations in Europe without including this place!

If you like Super clubs, world-renowned DJs and an endless supply of party favors, then you have just discovered your paradise.

Ibiza has long been seen as “The party capital of the world” offering an endless catalogue of wild and outrageous party events to the backdrop of hosting the best DJ’s in the world. 

Similar to destinations such as Las Vegas or Miami, travelers will often only stay for a maximum of 3 days before the unrelenting party atmosphere and the exorbitant prices get the best of them.

Although Ibiza might still widely be considered as the party capital of the world, we have found other destinations around Europe that go toe to toe with it for half the price!

Mallorca is basically Ibiza without the outrageous prices.

Offering daily events such as boat, foam and pool parties, a holiday spent in Mallorca is not to be underestimated.

Expect sheer party chaos, as this place (Magaluf in particular), has a tendency to bring the best and worst out of everyone.

Pro Tip
This is just a short boat ride from Ibiza, so you could easily kill two birds with one stone.



Who knew the Balkans got this LIT!

Although not as well-known as other party destinations on this list, Sunny Beach definitely should not be overlooked.

This summer European party paradise on the Black Sea is on the same level of wild as the Greek and Spanish islands.

The best part about Sunny Beach (and Bulgaria for this matter) is that this wild party can be enjoyed at a fraction of the cost!

Zakynthos | Greece

Ready to get out of control?

Zakynthos is the perfect place to have a holiday bender as it easily slides onto our list of best places to party in Europe.

Kick off Zante the right way with the premier boat party event Rum & Raybans, which just set a record for being the largest of its kind around Europe this past summer!

Also, with over a hundred bars, you will never run out of options for a good time and will fall in love with some of the best nightlife in Europe.

Barcelona | Spain

Where To Stay In Barcelona For Nightlife? | Kabul Party Hostel


Barcelona is an absolute must-visit during any European backpacking tour.

The best part: after these clubs begin to clear out around 5 am, the party relocates to the beach ensuring Barcelona as one of the best beach party destinations in Europe!


Where To Stay In Corfu For Nightlife? | The Pink Palace


Although a bit lesser-known than the other destinations on this list, don’t underestimate this hedonistic nirvana.

When looking for a good time on the island of Corfu, look no further than the Pink Palace backpackers party hostel.

Quite frankly, this place is what makes Corfu stand out as one of the best summer party destinations in Europe.

Widely recognized as the wildest party hostel on the planet, at the Pink Palace, the party has not considered a success unless everyone ends up skinny dipping on the beach by nights end.


  • Make sure you are there for the booze cruise and toga party. This is where you will discover how Corfu got its promiscuous reputation.

Where To Stay In Budapest For Nightlife? | Retox Party Hostel


Well, this city is just the gift that keeps on giving.

Citywide beer bikes, boat parties on the Danube, iconic nightlife venues and some of the wildest party hostels we’ve ever seen.

During the summer months, this city transforms into absolute mayhem each and every night of the week.

However, not anymore…

The “Sparties” have transformed into gigantic music filled hot-tub parties hosted every Saturday night.

That Retox Party Hostel we mentioned above is one of wildest party hostels that we have ever experienced. Their motto sums up the experience perfectly: “You may never be this free again”

Where To Stay In Prague For Nightlife? | Madhouse Party Hostel


Prague definitely gives Budapest a run for its money for the title of “party capital of Eastern Europe”.

With some of the best nightlife in Europe, beer that is cheaper than water, and decriminalized drug laws, Prague has become a beacon for stag parties amongst the Europeans.

If you’re planning on visiting the best party places in Europe then Prague had better be on your list!

Where To Stay In Lagos For Nightlife? | Rising Cock Party Hostel


Lagos Portugal is one of the most beautiful places that we have ever seen.

You’ll find yourself taken away by the coastline and laid-back atmosphere Lagos has to offer; that is until the sun goes down.

This picturesque utopia is pretty much wild the entirety of the summer and is a favorite of amongst many backpackers.

When traveling here, make sure to stay at the legendary Rising Cock Hostel.

Budva | Montenegro

To complete our list of the best party cities in Europe we head to a little seaside town in Eastern Europe that goes by the name of Budva.

Budva is the party capital of Montenegro—a country that most people have never even heard of.

Throughout summer, Budva hosts several wild foam parties during the day topped off with a relentlessly vibrant nightlife scene.

Although Budva is touted as one of the best party destinations in Europe, it is definitely much classier than the other places mentioned on this list.

The crowd consists largely of Serbians, Ukrainians, and Russians, so it is a bit of a different vibe (without the overabundance of sloppy Brits).

This place will definitely suck you in, as it did with us, turning our 4-night stay into a much longer one.

One of my favorite party destinations in Europe is Warsaw, the capital of Poland. It is cheap, modern and during the summer the weather is usually amazing. And there are so many awesome clubs and bars! The place that I was the most impressed with was a night club called New Orleans. It was an exclusive club for men, and it was probably one of the hottest places I have ever been to. All the dancers looked like models, they were sexy and gorgeous! I really hope to go there again one day!

We have never been to Warsaw, but it is definitely on our list. That New Orleans club sounds great!

I also recommend Poland. With my friends we ‘ve visited few cities: Poznan, Warsaw and Krakow. I must say that Warsaw impressed me the most: it’s a city that never sleeps! We also came to the New Orleans – this place has the best reviews and I must say that they are right. I was a little afraid because I really like classy gentlemen clubs and it was it! The dancers were amazing, I must admit.

Yes I keep hearing Poland has some pretty good spots to party! Will check it out next time I’m in Europe. And New Orleans is a wonderful party city. Fell in love the moment I arrived.
