The evaluation aimed to assess cities based on regulations and amenities that shape urban nightlife. Factors included mandated opening hours, last calls, the cost of a pint of beer and a Big Mac, and the availability of nighttime transport services. Each city received a ranking out of 10, with 10 indicating the highest nightlife-friendly appeal. Budapest achieved a score of 8, securing the second spot on the list, just behind Berlin.
