As real estate guys who help Bros (and the girls who love them) find their first post-graduation apartments, we’re often grilled as to the most “Bro” major cities to live in. While there is no one absolute ideal city, there are great cities for individual Bros. You need to weigh your job prospects first and foremost, but also crucial are the bar and restaurant scenes, the local sports action, access to the outdoors (i.e. the mountains or the beach), and, of course, the girls. (Our female clients ask us about all the same aspects of cities, with quality of Bros substituted for that last category. Our list of Next Step Realty’s top cities for Bros could be twice as long as what we’ve listed below, but the BroBible Editors asked us to limit to 12. Sound Off about your favorite Bro cities in the Comments below.
New York’s dog-eat-dog, mile-a-minute lifestyle provides an ideal environment for most Bros. The City has the best restaurants, best jobs, best nightlife, and, of course, best women. Each neighborhood offers its own “type” of girl, from benefit hoppers on the Upper West Side to sorority girls with dad’s credit card in Murray Hill to Chelsea blondes looking to experiment, the diversity of babes in this city is absurd. It's a numbers game here, and the numbers don't lie.
Bro-worthy bars: Too many to name.
This city may seem formal and overstuffed with overly ambitious political wannabes, but there are few greater places for a single Bro to live than Georgetown. If you can check your own Congressional aspirations at the door, the babes at staples like Rhino, Smith Point, and Third Edition will flock to you. If you’re sick of the college-type scene, head north to Adams Morgan or Dupont, other D.C. hoods with plenty to offer to Bros.
Bro-worthy bars: Gin and Tonic, Martins, and Black Fin.
San Francisco may not be the most Bro-centric city but it has its advantages. Bros in this city automatically get recognition from the hot, low-maintenance, West Coast babes, as the population of the Castro aids the Bro-to-babe ratio. San Fran is also known for its awesome Chinese and Mexican food, and for its proximity to weekend outdoor adventure: skiing in Tahoe, hiking in Yosemite, or biking up the NoCal coast.
Bro-worthy bars: The Cellar, Doc’s Clock, Blondies, and O’Reillys.
Austin is a young college town with a huge live music scene and incredible food. It’s hard to go a week, or even a night, without seeing some live show or going to town on the best burrito of your life. Sweet Southern girls who love to party line the streets. The Long Horns are life here, so when they win the town is a zoo.
Bro-worthy bars: The Speak Easy, The Hole in The Wall, Malverde, and 512 Bar.
This city has been climbing higher on Bros’ must-consider list faster than perhaps any other major city in the States, and not just because of the altitude. Chilled-out, laid-back babes who love to be outdoors are everywhere, plus it’s only two hours from Vail, an easy weekend trip, yielding many ski bunneys. Denver also boasts 300 days of sunshine, the most of any U.S city, resulting in maximum bronzeage. Another pro about Denver is the amount of microbreweries within the city limits. Want to be even closer to the Rockies? Boulder, while smaller and ultimately a college town, is a great alternative.
Bro-worthy bars: Churchill Bar, Gabor’s, Funky Buddha, and Jackson’s.
Atlanta is a huge sports town; the Braves and Falcons reign supreme. Atlanta is also the biggest city in the Southeast, so babes literally migrate here from all of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Northern Florida, and Alabama. All of the notable Buckhead bars are located in the same spot, so babe proximity on the weekends (and week nights) is out of control. Atlanta is not only home to Coke, but also to Sweet Water Brewery, a great local beer.
Bro-worthy bars: Churchill’s, East Andrews, Pool Hall, Red Door Tavern, and Park Bench.
