For many of us, having a place to go out for a drink and catch up with friends at the end—or even in the middle—of the week is crucial, whether it be a classic pub, a trendy cocktail bar, or a late-night club.

But where can you say that there are the most venues in the globe to drink a few beers?

Ranking in first place, with the most bars, is Prague, home to 47.97 bars per 100,000 people. The city is one of the highest beer consuming nations in the world, so perhaps it’s no surprise that it comes out on top. The city has more than 600 bars listed, particularly in the districts of Malá Strana, Staré Město, Žižkov and Nusle, making it the perfect destination for a holiday tipple. 

Las Vegas ranks in second place, with 41.89 bars listed for every 100,000 people. The bright lights ofLas Vegas attract millions of tourists every year, with the nightlife being at the top of many visitors’ agendas. 

Another of America’s most popular tourist towns comes in third place. Orlando has just over 40 bars listed per 100,000 people. Despite being a hugely popular destination, with lots of things to do (and places to drink!), Orlando is actually relatively small compared to many other major US cities, with a population of around 300,000 people. 

4 US cities rank in the top 10, with San Francisco ranking 5th and Miami ranking 9th.
