Vila Nova da Cerveira Nightlife

  • Industria Agricola: Summer Nightlife

    by dcgemini1 Written May 23, 2006

    Industria Agricola is a local favorite and the place to be Saturdays during the summer. This place is open only in July and August on Saturdays and everyone makes sure they are there. Mobs of young people from miles and miles around as well as vacationers all pack the place and its a garunteed good time. It opens very late, around 1 or 2 a.m so everyone bar hops till its time to head up the Vila Nova de Cerveira hill and party the night away up until the wee hours of the morning. Industria also has an outside area where many go to try and escape the smoke filled air and get out of the crowd. If your in the area, you cannot miss this place. Its a must if you like the club scene.
