Nightlife is the collective term for any entertainment that is available and more popular from the late evening into the early hours of the morning. It includes the pubs, nightclubs, bars, live music, cabaret, small theatres, small cinemas, shows, and sometimes restaurants a specific area may have. Nightlife encompasses entertainment from the fairly tame to the risque to the seedy. Nightlife entertainment is inherently edgier than daytime amusements, and usually more oriented to young adults. Under some rubrics, Nightlife also encompasses such "adult entertainment" as a red-light district.

For instance, many young people go would choose to go to Ibiza or other such places "for the nightlife" as there is a wide range of clubs other such places to go, although there may not be much else on offer in the locality. Many large cities are famous for their nightlife also, such as Miami, Las Vegas, San Francisco, New York and Chicago in the US, and Paris, Madrid and Belgrade in Europe, to name a few. Madrid is particularly well known for the range of ages that participate in the nightlife and for the extended hours that they stay out.
