Nightlife & Drinking Report

Vital insights into Gen Z and Millennials' behavior, plans, and views—with major takeaways for brands.

The nightlife scene looks drastically different from what it did pre-COVID, and it may be some time before it gets back to normal—if it ever does. Young people were a homebody generation even before COVID and being forced to stay at home has not changed that. In fact it may have shifted the preference to stay in rather than go out even further. Even young people old enough to drink are enjoying staying home and the majority don’t wish they could be at the bars more often. This report dives into nightlife during COVID, alcohol consumption now and post-COVID, and how, during a shutdown, brands can still reach young consumers.
