How We Produced This Guide
To identify Europe’s best clubbing destinations, we used online mapping tools, user reviews, events listings websites and city guides to identify the cities with the highest concentration of nightlife venues, the most events listed and the highest quality events.
We used online event listings and menus and, where they were not available, contacted clubs in each city directly in order to find out the average price of entry on a Saturday night, a standard small beer (usually 330ml, although standard sizes vary by country), and a mixed drink (single measure, cheapest mixed drink available).
Taxi prices are for an average 5 mile journey within the city limits and come from a leading global cost of living index.
Accommodation prices were sourced from our own search data. The price is the average price per person to stay in a 4-person holiday rental in the destination found on HomeToGo, for a Saturday night between the 1st June and 31st August 2019.
All prices were converted from local currency into pounds on the 26th April 2019 using a leading online currency converter.
*The percentage increase in searches (for ‘Trending destinations’ section) was calculated by comparing the number of searches for the destination on hometogo.co.uk between 27th April 2018 and 26th April 2019 to the number of searches between 27th April 2017 and 26th April 2019.
