Like restaurants, hanging out in bars all of the time will quickly zap your funds. Do a bit of research to find out where the cheap bars are. Ordinarily the farther you go from the city center the cheaper the bars become, but it’s also worth finding out where the students hang out and also where older people go for a nightcap as both demographics tend to favor a cheaper pint. Make your alcohol budget stretch even farther by hitting up the happy hour specials wherever you can and drinking the local brew rather than more expensive imported drinks. If you still want to be out drinking during peak hours, take to the streets with a drink in your hand. Many places, especially in Europe, have incredibly lax open-carry laws so you can wander the city streets with a beer without breaking any laws. Head to the beach or a nice park with a picnic blanket and a bottle of cheap wine for a romantic and very affordable night out.
