Tai Chi Chaun, without a doubt, because it teaches you about movement and balance, and close in applications, as well as pressure and ways of extracating yourself from grapples and situations. Its relatively easy to learn, and providing you practice the form becomes second nature very quickly. Anything "flashy" relying on throws and kicks is no use in a packed bar at 2am.
But most of all, you need the ability - particularly in urban situations - to detach yourself from everything but your own survival and be a total and utter bastard for long enough to remove yourself from harms way.

I find the little known Scottish martial art of Phukyu to be easy to learn,and fairly effective.
It mainly involves head butting,and repeated kicks to the groin and it has helped me out of a tight spot on more than one occasion!
