Dancing and nightclubs, Lisbon
Fluid is a really cool bar, in Santos, which is an area with loads of bars and lots of people in the streets.
the only problem with it's the size. It's a really small palce, always packed, cause the music is good, there's always a dj giving out the ambient! but if you go during week nights you might get the cnahce to seat down and check the cool decoration, kind of 50's.
Don't forget to drink vodka with fresh-apple juice.
Dress Code: whatever.
If you wish to visit Lisbon's famous open-till-sunrise nightclubs, head to Lux, a fantastic club with multiple floors in a former museum with a panoramic view of the Tagus River. If you have time for only one place, go there.
Two floors with diferent characteristics. On the first floor you can dance, or you can just seat and have a nice time talking with your friends. It has a terrace where you can 'relax' whatching Tagus River :). On the other floor you can dance ....
Tea hall, Coffee-shop, Lounge-bar
Dress Code: whatever you want ...
The last spot of 80's music. Billy Idol and others. You can have parties all week, each day they have a theme.
Harleys are a passion...
Wednesday - Free Drinks
Thirsday - buy 1 take 2 Corona
Well don't drive after.... Please!
Dress Code: Dressed.
It's the trendiest disco at the moment, by far. By the river, two stories plus terrace to enjoy the view. Great sound in both stories, with different ambiences.
Dress Code: Depending on the day, but at least shoes are usually mandatory. Not necessarily too fancy, but typical touristy look (meaning t-shirt and shorts) won't let you in.
A beautiful view of the River, a wonderful terrace, beatiful decoration and probably the best DJ set in Portugal (with a few famous foreign guests from time to time)
Dress Code: Dress as you want... just avoid worn out tennis shoes...
Upstairs is like a scene from an Andy Warhol set. Sofas and comfortable chairs with people draped over them deeply immersed in conversation. You pay to get in but, you get free drink tickets. One ticket for a normal beer, two tickets for import or a short etc. Nightlife in Lisbon starts early, early in the morning that is. We were going out at a time when I would normally be coming back. There are clubs around the EXPO site for Brazillian music. LUX is the biggest club in town and around 3 or 4 in the morning it leans toward a gay scene. You pay your money and take your choice.
Dress Code: Basement clubs will let you in with trainers but, the bigger clubs demand trousers and shoes.
Men Club with Strip Tease. Never went there, my friends did though. they liked it. I was just passing the street and saw it and said: wow that can be useful for VT's! ha
It was three floors offering several bars with different music, styling and atmospheres.
Dress Code: There is a great selection policy at the door, so dress nicely and look good.
The bartenders at La Bodeguita had a good time leading the crowd in a dance that reminded me of the Cuban version of La Macarena. After a few drinks, it's easy to be entertained by some goofy things!
This Cuban place was hoppin' and packed with locals and a smattering of tourists as well. It's loud and crowded, but has a lot of energy. Try a mojito to get in the Cuban spirit!
