Nightlife is the eleventh album, the seventh of entirely new music, by the UK electronic music group Pet Shop Boys. It was first released in 1999.

Nightlife came at a time fans were worried Pet Shop Boys might stop recording new music. It had been three years since the last album (Bilingual), at the time the longest gap between albums, and over that time the duo had lost some of their fan base. Some fans who bothered to listen to Nightlife when it came out were disappointed, became disillusioned, and stopped listening to new Pet Shop Boys material; others, including a fairly large number of new fans, found the album to be a breath of fresh air. In any case, Nightlife bears very little resemblance to early Pet Shop Boys work. The modern dance music trends, new in Bilingual, were now the focus of Nightlife's sound; latin music influences from Bilingual were entirely absent. Nightlife also has arguably the darkest sound of any Pet Shop Boys album.

The song "In Denial" is a duet featuring fellow Parlophone artist Kylie Minogue. Minogue's work on this project came at a time of relatively low record sales, a few years before her big comeback into popular music.

Nightlife is significant not only as an album, but also in that it provides songs for Pet Shop Boys' musical, Closer to Heaven.

Nightlife was also released in a limited edition 2-disc set, Nightlife/Extra. Most of the second disc is remixes of songs from the album; none of the new songs achieved much popularity, even with devoted fans.

As of 2004, Pet Shop Boys announced they would rerelease Nightlife, presumably remastered.
