it has the country’s youngest population. Check out BUMB (Bar Underground Music Bunker), a former tunnel underneath the city; and Club Rotterdam, a cocktail bar and restaurant. Techno and electro is the music of choice here.

4. Ibiza, Spain

5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
What: Dance to Brazilian funk and bear witness to some of the sexiest moves you’ve ever seen at Sunday night’s Favela Funk Party at club Castello Das Pedras in Zona Oeste. It’s a bit of a sweat pit of gyrating bodies, but that is, after all, part of the fun.
