This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

In addition to Edwin Ashworth's excellent suggestions of socialite and party animal I can make a few suggestions.
All of these uses are slang/idiomatic hence they might be readily available in a thesaurus or standard reference.
Partier (alternatively partyer) - usually a negative connotation.
He flunked out of college because he was too busy being a partier to study.
(Note - the proper usage of this term is to describe a party attendee. This usage is slangy.)
Clubber - similar to partier.
That girl is a real clubber! I always see her stumbling home at dawn!
(Note - the proper usage of this term is to describe someone wielding a club, typically to beat something like a baby seal to death.)
Also, an old-fashioned term: Good Time Charlie
I think this usage is quite antiquated, but it remains useful.
The term "reveller" is perhaps the most appropriate.
Reveller: one who engages in revelry
revelry: joyful celebration that includes eating, drinking, singing, and dancing
I think much of the other proposed terms aren't really appropriate. For example, "Socialite" has several strong connotations of high social standing, and isn't necessarily about liking to party.
A person who goes to many popular parties, clubs, etc. M-W
