Another long-standing site, this self-proclaimed "urban travel guide" is definitely not for the banana-pancake brigade. Instead, it uses a network of local insiders to offer tips and stories on the hottest bars, restaurants, clubs, shops and events in major cities around the world at any given moment. A bit too cool for school for some, but undeniably useful if you want to avoid the usual tourist haunts.
