Tips for coming to Lisbon - Nightlife
1. Docas (Santo Amaro Docks) - If you would like to savour some of the nightlife in Lisbon, put the area Docas (Docks) on your list. It offers a variety of restaurants and different types of music from salsa to jazz. In particular check-out the restaurant
“Quero-te nas docas” (http:/en.querote.pt).
Here musicians and singers come for jazz “jam” sessions every Tuesday night. You will also see some terrific dancers showing off their Swing moves, especially West Coast Swing and Lindy Hop. Sessions begin from 9pm, so get there early to find a table and enjoy a wonderful view of the impressive 25th of April bridge from the docks. Bring a warm sweater and jacket as it can get quite fresh in the evening.
2. Cascais - an up market coastal town about 30-45 minutes from Lisbon. Readily accessible by train. Visit the Casa da Guia (https://casadaguiacascais.pt). This is a lovely manor house with spectacular views over the Ocean. The house and gardens have an array of very good restaurants and a coffee house where you can sit and hear the ocean while enjoying (inexpensively) good coffee or a glass of wine.
It is also a great place at night because it hosts the restaurant “Palaphita Cascais’ (https://www.palaphita.eu) under its trees. Palaphita is a Brasilian restaurant and from Thursday nights on they have music. It is outdoors so it can be a little bit chilly - bring a jacket.
Another gem for lovers of Jazz Blues and Bossa Nova is the Cascais Jazz Club (@cascaisjazzclub), a small intimate club. Open from Wednesday to Sunday, make sure to book your table well in advance.
