Dancing and nightclubs, Lisbon
I like this bar\disco a lot because it has good atmosphere, and a very nice view to the River.
The deco its from 60\70 years. It has very good DJs often and the music goes from House, Easy-Listenning, Breakbeast, Soul, Funk to Dance Music.
Opens: 18:00h Closes: 06:00h
Works from: 3ª to Sunday
They can ask u till 2000 €.. (if they really dont want u in they might ask u that price), but in average the price goes from 10 to 25€ per person here.
The price in Portuguese discos depends on the dailly mood of the door worker, on the way you look and of course in your gender.
Average age: 22-32
Dress Code: People have to be good looking overall, u can have ur own stylle that would be most apprciated in this disco, but dont try to go there with white tennis for example. (tennis aint welcome in most of discos)
This was my favourite disco for many years exactly cause its very versatile and its frequented by all kind of people. The kind of music that passes here is house music. Its all decored in 70's stylle also with a nice esplanade infront of the River. At tuesdays they have the ladies night (women only pay 5 euros or nothing) and drink all night for free and there is masculine and\or mist strip, at fridays and saturdays they usually put dancers around the disco. During the rest week there are many kind of parties.

Very trendy spot. Lux is a converted warehouse near Santa Apolonia train station. What is interesting is that the club is part-owned by Hollywood star John Malkowich. I would say that this is a good place for the ones who like to be seen.
The uniqueness of B.leza is stated by the fact that you can't pick «Concert», «Dancing» and «Live Music» at the same time from the Theme list in this Tip.
It's a great spot, set in a 17th Century Palace in the centre of Lisbon. You will find a very warm and nice atmosphere, live african music that you dance to. You can either take it as a concert spot and just watch, a bar, sitting down and enjoying the music, or a danceclub, which is what most african people there do.
If you are a woman, prepare yourself to be consecutevely asked for to dance with guys. But don't stress about it, it's just the way it is, no second intentions, unless you want to...
Dress Code: No dress code.
It's not easy to get in. The doorman looks at the people and then he decides... The place has a nice decoration at least.
The music is mainly dance music with some latin mixture.
Open til 6 am
Dress Code: Be friend of the doorman!!
it's a hole-in-the-wall bar - very lively and with a great crowd - in the Bairro Alto. When I mean greatcrowd, I mean a 30-something jeans and t-shirt crowd - good music from the 80ies and 90ies (no rap - no ouse - no techno). basically a down-to-earth watering hole where you go to drink and have fun - and not to be seen or pick-up someone. Huge shots of tequila cost 2 euros
Dress Code: very (VERY) casual
The BluesCafé, by the Tagus river shore, is a mixture of Restaurant, Bar and Discotheque. It's interior boasts a comfortable, luxury decoration, perfect for "lounging".
The bar of the BluesCafé offers a comfortable and cosy atmosphere. There are four bars and a lounge area with large comfortable chairs. The bar opens at 20,30h. and closes, on the weekdays, at 03.30h.
The discotheque opens all weekends
At weekends the dance floor opens at 02.00 h until 05.00 h. The musical choice includes the commercial hits of the moment, "disco sound", Latin and the eighties. The crowd is 30ish.
The number one spot in Lisbon for Electro lovers. A must see.
Beautiful surroundings, by the river, with the bridge and the marina as landscape.
Great nights with several resident DJs and with invited national and international ones, as well as live music and VJs.
Unitl early in the morning...
Dress Code: No dress code :)
Portas Largas means wide doors in portuguese and this is true, the doors are wide open and everybody is standing / sitting outside. Its a nice bar and standing outside you get to watch people and be watched. You get to flirt and have a drink and enjoy the lisbon evenings. Its a great bar really worth a visit.
Presently there's a lot of places in Lisboa that are making Ladies night partys in special days of the week. Each night it's a ladies night in a disco. A ladies night is a night where women don't pay to enter as well as to drink. So, if you're a girl you can go and stay on this places drinking for free. You will find this places crowded with girls and - of course - expect to see virtualy "zilions" of man runing after women :)
Here's the list:
Tuesday: Dock's club
Wednesday: W disco
This bar's and discos are mostly located on the dockland area, in old wharehouses recovered few years ago. You should expect to see all sorts of people there, it's a mixture.
Don't go to early, the best hour to enter is about 2:30 am. It will last until morning, specially during summer months.
Dress Code: Anything you like!!!
Kremlin is an old disco. The people there is a mixture of every kind you can imagine - from yuppies to punks, models, call girls and gays. It is crowded between 6:00 / 7:00 am, so don't need to go there before that, because the place is empty.
Dress Code: Whatever you like to - if the doorman likes your style you could enter naked!!!
This place is really cool. One of the owners of this place (as well as the restaurant Bica do Sapato in front of it) is the actor John Malkovich.It has three levels, with a varanda on the top floor with a great view to the river.
This place is better early in the night - go there about 1/2:00 am
Dress Code: Wear something cool, fashion
I would say to avoid this place - personaly I don't like it. I use to go there a lot when I was a teen, but somehow it's a reference in the lisboa night because few years ago it was a really nice place to go. Expect to find very very beautifull people there ( girls/women) but most off them snob and in the 18 / 23 years range. You also see some people on the thirtys hanging around. The disco is very large and spreaded in 3 levels each one with diferent music / environment. Theres a nice varanda on the top floor.
Dress Code: You should dress properly to enter here, a litle bit "nouveaux riche" if you know what I mean...avoid sneakers unless you're someone very beautifull. In this case they'll let you enter I guess...;)))
This place has an extremly beautifull location. It has one of the best views of the river, specially at night. It has a restaurant that works until 2:00 am and after that it becomes a disco. So you can go there to dinner than you stay for dancing. The best hour to be there, in my opinion is 3:00 am.
Don't forget it's closed on Sundays.
Dress Code: You should wear something "Casual Chic". Sneakers are not allowed
This superclub was once ranked as the best club in Europe for house music, and featured in DJ magazine's list of the top 10 European clubs. Today it is notorious for its Ecstasy-entranced clientele and known as the venue in the city that attracts the most varied crowd (yuppies, call girls, gays, straights, and models all mingle together). The music is deep house and the décor has a bizarre oriental theme
