A megacity is known for its various elements and aspects. For example- its transportation system, its culture, its shopping streets, its quality of lifestyle, its traffic, its economical power and of course its nightlife.
Man is a social animal, we all know that. And, that’s why he always has the right to chill out, enjoy and stream off all problems of his personal or professional life. Nightlife is the thing that many people require when they want forget the tension and the attrition of the hard day’s worth of work.
But, ironically, these days, the depth of a city’s nightlife has also become the barometer for its growth. Night life has become quite an important aspect in everyone’s life and it has also become a crucial requirement in a city, if people are planning to move there.
The world moves in a very simple, but peculiar, way. The better the night life style of a city, the more appealing the city is to all people. And, in turn, this promotes the economical and social growth of a place.
Why is night life important for your life style?
If you are a workaholic who spends nearly 12 to 13 hours a day at office, then leisure time can come few and far between for you. It is probable that one has to relax and cool off during the night in order to get charged up again for the morning. Night life, totally and dedicatedly conveys the message of—Work Hard and Party Harder.
A night of partying, drinking and socializing with friends and others can really boost up the energy levels of a person. And, this is the reason why every single popular city of the world—be it New York, Amsterdam, Singapore, Tokyo, Monte Carlo, Shanghai, Mumbai, London, Sydney, Paris and other mega cities—has a very robust and a happening nightlife. Night life is indeed a fantastic way to commemorate the fun-filled culture and nature of the human society, and it is also a very good concept for the cities itself.
How can nightlife directly affect a city’s growth?
Well, for a start, if a city is dull, and the people in it are lethargic, then everyone will settle down with the circle of life. That is, home, office and home again. All the energy in the crowd will disappear. This will not only hamper the people—especially the out of the box innovative ones— but will also make the city a boring place to live and visit.
A city becomes an automatic destination choice for many travellers if its street having the glamour at night. Many people select a city as a tourist spot if its nightlife is appealing, safe and propounding. And, as we know, this automatically can affect a city’s growth; economical and social growth at that.
Another very important reason why a city should have a night life is—many affluent and influential people prefer this lifestyle of ‘being the night owls’. Hence, if a city needs to sustain its population of people who are party animals, then it has to have a decent and attracting enough night life. Apart from this, the quality of night life in a city is also a magnet for attracting new families, couples and youngsters to a city. The better the night life style, the more the city can attract people with deeper pockets and influence. And, that in turn can attract investments and business, in all forms of sectors.
Hence, you can easily say the night life of a city equally, if not substantially, promotes the growth of a place.
