Trumps has a long tradition in this city as being a great nightclub on the Lisbon night scene. It is a gay bar, but not exclusively. The place is pretty large and offers a pleasant ambiance. 80's music is what you get here. This is a good place to end your night, after you're done with the pub hopping for the night. Check the website for timings.
Enoteca is the perfect place for those who appreciate fine wine. The snacks served in this establishment are just as famous as the nectar from the gods and is situated on the site of the old Lisbon well, from where the city's water supply used to come; an ideal place to keep wine. The quality of the bottles is irreproachable and it has a very good collection of wines, not only from all regions in Portugal, but also several corners of the globe.
Mussulo is the perfect disco for those who want to spend a night listening and dancing to the sounds of African music. The ambience is hot, just like in Africa, and sometimes goes on well after 5a. The service is professional and always efficient. A smile is always waiting for you and a night at Mussulo is something you will never forget.
One of the oldest clubs in the city of Lisbon, Ritz Clube was established in 1908. It has always attracted a bohemian crowd, and even in its renovated form attracts the culturally inclined. A 400-capacity venue, it plays host to a vast array of musical events throughout the year. You can also enjoy some wonderful Portuguese cuisine and wines at this nightclub.
Frágil is a well established stop on Lisbon's bustling club scene, but still continues to maintain its status and draws in the crowds. This busy night club's success is due to their guarantee of great music, especially music not normally heard in the Lisbon club scene. Always at the forefront of what's new and fashionable, Frágil is known to be a trendsetter when it comes to Lisbon nightlife. Well designed, the club provides an entertaining atmosphere few other spots in the city can match. If you are tired of hearing the usual, and want to check out one of the best dance parties in Lisbon, Frágil is definitely the place to be.
Incógnito has taken in several generations of young people for over a decade. This club has been frequented by all kinds of people, whether it be the gay community or the 80s avant-garde, known for their black clothes. Today, one can still hear alternative music, from British pop music to the nostalgic Doors, making Incognito one of the most charismatic discos in the city of Lisbon. Those who are allergic to dance music, however, cannot escape the odd track here and there. The space is divided into three areas. In the basement, you will find a dance floor and a bar; at the entrance hall, a seating area with sofas and tables; and on the first floor, another bar.
The Bairro Alto is well known in Lisbon, mostly due to its great selection of bars and taverns. The Lisnave continues with that tradition, but adds to that a large dancing space where you can go party late into the night. The name of this club was inspired by a major boating industry company that is located in Cacilhas, right across the river Tagus, on the south side. The décor, which consists of great industrial and metal pieces, is reminiscent of that inspiration.
A different bar to all the others, the atmosphere is very reminiscent of Louisiana or New Orleans bars.The Blues Café is located on the banks of the river Tagus, specifically in the Docas area of the city. An unforgettable night is in order in a very large, friendly place, punctuated by the sound of blues and jazz. Disco opens on Fridays and Saturdays at 1am.
To some, drinking and smoking in what used to be a chapel might seem sacrilegious. Then again, they probably haven't been to the nightclub Capela. After a 180 degree turn, Capela is exotic, Capela is Gothic (no pun intended) and so is the crowd that frequents this place. The who's who and those who want to be a who pack Capela to the wee hours of the morning, grooving to the electronica that blares from the speakers.
A perfect blend of the yesterday meets today, Tasca do Chico is the brainchild of Francisco Gonçalves who has been there and seen the restaurant evolve into the haute bar that it personifies.

Sing out if you wish to, 'cause here everyday is a party and everyone's a friend from the block. Expect the place to be packed almost every night and the crowd is an eclectic mix of three generations of fun loving people. So if you are in the mood for some real fun, Tasca do Chico is 'The' place to have it and let it show.
Located in the heart of Bairro Alto, The Sétimo Céu is a lively place to go out. During the weekend, it is quite difficult, in this two-roomed bar, to get in and find a place to drink. However, the clients settle down in the street waiting for the barmaids to order a drink. Modern decoration in a small place.
Senhor Vinho is an old school, culturally rich restaurant that has held its own against the homogeneous establishments around. For an authentic Portuguese experience, this low-ceilinged rustic restaurant has everything. The seafood (something that the Portuguese are known for) is excellent, be it the prawn, codfish, shellfish or octopus. The pork and goat meats are equally succulent and the meal can be capped off with traditional Portuguese desserts like the Pudim Flan or the Queijadas. All this to the backdrop of the traditional fado sung by the most soulful of voices.
