Miami was ranked the No. 8 party city in the world

Trailing Montreal and Athens, among others

"Party in the city where the heat is on. All night, on the beach till the break of dawn. Welcome to Miami. Buenvenidos a Miami."

Nearly 20 years later and Will Smith’s 1997 hit "Miami" still holds up because not that much has changed — as far as the city’s party scene is concerned.

In ranking the best party cities in the world, Thrillist placed Miami in the Top 10, coming in at No. 8:

Only in Miami can you be standing in a hotel lobby at 8pm on a Monday and have a 65-year-old man in a yarmulke come up to you and say: "My wife's pissed at me because I've been partying at E11EVEN since 9 o'clock last night."

The only cities to out party the Magic City? From seventh to first: Montreal, Athens, Bangkok, Berlin, Ibiza, Las Vegas, and Seoul.

Seems about right.
