Centre of Albufeira: Stroll in the freshness
If you have no specific program, a good idea is walking around in the centre of Albufeira: each bar and restaurant have their performance, with live music to attract clients to sit.
Street animation is sometimes fun, and... everybody goes there, with the centre and the so called "strip area" always crowded.

"The Strip": "The Strip"
"THE STRIP" = a busy, bustling street lined with bars and restaurants and a few shops. It really comes to life after 8pm andis noisy, brash and a lot of fun for those who like some night-life. Several dancing places, clubs, Kareoke bars etc come to life then too.
Enjoy a stroll just soaking-up the atmosphere of eat in one of the busy resturants. The bars are also busy and noisy, often with big-screen TV's showing music videos or sporting events.
Dress Code: VERY casual!
The whole strip!: AWESOME NIGHTLIFE!!
The whole strip in Albufeira is awesome!! Great for young groups, who are looking for a lively, party holiday! Most clubs and bars don't shut until 4am, so you have PLENTY of time to dance/drink the night away! I have just returned from Albufeira and I'm already booked to go back in September! All the nightlife spots are amazing, however, we spent everynight going between, "mambo cafe, patcha, matts bar, garage"..ALL AMAZING!! The strip is full of hen and stag parties aswell as groups looking for a good time! I cannot tell you how amazing it is! If you're looking for a LIVELY party holiday, you MUST go to the strip! LOVE IT! Enjoy ladies/lads!x
Dress Code: ANYTHING!!!
The strip is the name of the main party street in Albufeira.
It´s a very lively street where you have a plethora of bars, clubs, restaurants, etc and it´s the best place to head if you are looking for a lively night out in Albufeira.
If you want to save money then it´s not hard to go bar hopping and go from one happy hour to the other so you do not need to spend a lot of money there if you don´t feel like.

Matt's Bar: Best Places to go on the strip
I've just come back from Albufeira (its been my third trip), and am missing it already! Most nights me and my friends hung out at Matt's Bar, which has everything, even tho a few of the other bars on the strip are quite good you can't beat Matt's Bar and we'd always end up there. The music is really good and they always have something going on, even off season. The drinks aren't expensive and the staff are all friendly and have fun which adds to the brilliant party atmosphere! They have a rodeo bull outside on the large terrace which is always a good laugh and highly entertaining. Definately give Matts Bar a go! We wanna thank DJ Tastie and all the staff for an amazing holiday, we know where we're going next year!!!
"The Strip", for the loud
"The Strip" is a street (avenida Doutor Francisco SA Carneiro) that crosses the main road (Avenida Dos Descobrimentos) and leads you to the beach.
It's crowded with English, Dutch and yes - some Portugese people. It has a lot of touristic little shops, selling souvenirs and lots of restaurants/bars. The most part of it, gets really loud after, let's say, 11 at night.
The funny thing is, that people grow fifty years older over night. I arrived at 1 am and went to take a look and only saw 20-something year old people. The next day I was there again and I only saw 70-something year old people.
It wasn't really my cup of tea. If I were 20, I might like it. Just hanging out and checking people out.
Dress Code: No dress code. From sleazy to dressed up. Try wearing heels or not, depending on where you want to look (see my 'warning' tip).
Old Town: Lovely meals n cheap transport
I am goin albufeira next wed,although ive been before i havent been so late in the year so cant comment on the weather but as far as nice meals are concerned i would advise you to head to the old town,there are loadza nice restaurants there by the sea front.when i last went me and my mate would go 4 meals in the old town n then head to the strip after 4 drinks.i would also recommend the little train that drives round,it takes you from the old town and to the strip n vice versa 4 about 3 euros 4 a day pass,plus it runs til the early hours of the morning.Hope this helps n hope ya enjoy albufiera n fingers crossed the weather will be nice.
The late nights !!: The late nights !!
There are two areas for nightlife, the Old Town and the 'Strip'. The 'Strip' attracts younger tourists with a great majority being British, it is bar after bar. My favourite nightclub would be West & Co, this disco bar attracts a selective admosphere and you dont get so many lager louts. The Old town captures a mixure of nationalities and is more appealing to 25+.
Bloopers: German Club?? No Dutch..
This Club was every night packed with Germans and Dutchand they also played Dutch music.. when we got in everyone stared cause we were not blond haired :-)))) and so mediterranean probably ;)) afterwards we decided to go...
I was more accepted with my friend Angela which is Russian and naturally blonde platinum ;)
Dress Code: casual clothes
Coyote Bar: This is the place if you like singing

Dress Code: Casual
Domino's: Dance till 3am here :))
This club is small, as almost all clubs in Albufeira, but the music is good and people always come here.. it may be too crowded sometimes. I went here often and then went to eat something to Domino's Food which is beside the Domino's dancehall.
Dress Code: dress to impress
KADOC: Top Club
Went to this club on sunday they were having a foam party. The foam never stopped coming and soon it was up to my head. so much fun not many english more ports there. Didnt leave till 6am. Really good night
There's plenty of bars and restaurants here along both sides of the road, I think they call it the strip. And this is where you will find some of the nicest restaurants, or the liveliest bars around town.
