Dancing and nightclubs, Lisbon
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.
very swish style bar upstairs, come 1.30am the club section below opens up, would check the lux website to see who is playing as i was lucky enough to see boys noize, tremendous night, great club.
reasonably priced both entry and drinks wise.
Dress Code: didn't seem to be too strict a dress code the night i was there, perhaps in light of the dj who was on who attracts a young student type crowd in the main.
Lisbon don't have that much pubs as usually other capital cities do.
Still, this one is great and you feel really good in there.
It's quite small, but has 3 floors. There is a good variety of choice when it comes to beers. If you want to try some whine this pub also has some choices, and of course, cocktails.
You also have a food menu, with some different types of hamburguers, sandwiches, mushroows, cheese.
All in all, I really like to go there at the end of a hard day of work and relax to the sound of some 90's!
Trumps is the only real gay club of Lisbon. All the cute boys in town go there, but also the less beautiful ones :). The music is great, they play house, club, cher, madonna, etc. Its quite expensive for portuguese standards but then again, everything is in Lisbon.
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...
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.
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
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!
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!
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.
