Melbourne is the most liveable city for men

A recent poll by men’s website has confirmed what many Melbournians already know – the Garden State’s capital has been rated as the second best city for men to live in, with New York taking top honours.
Using data from such organisations as the United Nations and global consultancy Mercer, the online poll ranked 29 cities worldwide according to their liveability for the male population based on seven factors; weather, cost of living, professional life, dating, night on the town, day on the town and the fresh air factor. These categories looked closely at various dynamics including the ratio of men to women, the number of new restaurants opening and the amount of annual leave.
Sydney also got a look in, but fell from its fifth placing in last year’s survey to number nine, while Tokyo, Madrid and London came in at third, fourth and fifth place respectively.’s editor-in-chief James Bassil told Reuters, “We’re positioning the best cities that you can live in say, for a year, somewhere exotic, with cultural options, and job opportunities as well, and also entertainment as a man, which includes clubs and fresh air options.”
This outcome reflects the strength of Australia’s two largest capital cities and the resilience of our local economy during the GFC, with stable employment figures and a growth in new business (such as restaurants and entertainment venues), bucking the trend of many major cities across the world that saw unemployment figures soar and a large number of businesses collapse.

Here is’s list of the top 29 cities for men;
