The New York Times recently highlighted Las Vegas as one of the four places to be for New Year's Eve. More than 330,000 travelers are expected to descend of the Las Vegas valley to ring in the new year.

That's not the only list that the city has ended up on as a result of celebrating New Year's Eve. Las Vegas has also been named as one of the cities most likely to have a New Year's Day hangover.

Truila used data from Yelp for the 100 largest metropolitan areas in the United States to compile their list. Factors considered included number of nightlife establishments, bars and breweries; number of restaurants offering comfort food (always food for a hangover); and number of drugstores per 10,000 households.

The other top five include Philadelphia (30.7) and Providence, Rhode Island (29.9).

The bottom 5 cities on the list are all located in the South. They include Birmingham, Alabama; Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Memphis, Tennessee; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Columbia, South Carolina.
