Nightlife in Portugal
If you are one to enjoy clubbing and partying, you would love Portugal. The country’s nightlife offers dance, drinks and music with a more relaxed and laid-back vibe. But this does not mean the Portuguese do not know how to have fun; they just know how to give you a good time. You can party hard, but you do not have to exert too much effort to do it.
Clubbing in Portugal is different when placed side by side with most partying conventions. In popular and busy nightclub strips like those in Porto or Lisbon, partying means getting your drink from the bar and heading outside, which turns the streets into one big mass of people drinking and chatting the night away. Those who want to dance need to go inside, where the DJ spins music.
Other bars follow a pay later system, where you are issued a card that need to be filled out as you order your drinks. These you have to pay at the bar before you leave, or you will not be allowed to get out of the bar. Plus, they have a minimum consumption policy, so you need to have enough stamps in your card so you could get out.
But with the help of your local host, you will dance and party the noght away without worries, as they will explian how Portuguese's party and where they party.
