A study of the wildest cities in the world – wild as in humans not animals – listed Manchester, England, as the No. 1 spot for those who like to party hard with no regrets, but six U.S. cities placed in the top 10, according to the MoveHub.

The international relocation company said it created the study using website information from sites like Yelp and TripAdvisor to get a gauge on nightlife in 112 cities. It followed up with raw data on marijuana consumption, per 100,000 people each year, cocaine use and alcohol consumption, using statistics from the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime and the World Health Organization.

"Each city was then given a score ranging from 0 to 3, where 0 is completely tame and 3 is absolutely bonkers," MoveHub said.

When the numbers from the various categories were crunched, Manchester came out as the world's wildest city with an overall average score of 2.83, followed by Washington, D.C. at 2.60, Miami at 2.59, Seattle at 2.51, and San Francisco and Leeds, England, at 2.49 each.

"(Manchester) is bursting at the seams with world-class clubs, and it basically invented rave culture back in the early '90s," MoveHub wrote. "Manchester came first in the world for two separate categories: nightlife venues and cannabis consumption.

"There are a whopping 818 nightlife venues for every 100,000 people in Manchester, and the Mancs consume a hefty 2.30 metric tons of weed per 100,000 people each year. On top of this, we gave Manchester the U.K.-wide averages for alcohol and cocaine consumption: 11.6 liters per person per year and 2.25 percent population usage, respectively," MoveHub continued.

Other cities that rounded out the top 10 included Denver with a score of 2.47, Boston at 2.45, Paris at 2.44, and Lyon, France, at 2.38.

The Independent wrote that while Manchester proved to the be the wildest, Jakarta, Indonesia, earned the lowest score, or the "tamest" city on the survey, tallying 0.12 points.

Relax News pointed out Asian cities like Tokyo, Manila, Singapore, Seoul and Bangkok were surprisingly found at the bottom of the list. It will probably raise eyebrows that Denver made the top 10 ahead of other U.S. cities like Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and New York.
