Pubs, bars and nightclubs in Lagos area
The centre of Lagos comes alive in the evenings with street entertainers and buskers and starts in earnest after 9.00pm when several energetic dance clubs and character-filled bars strewn through the main part of town start to fill up.

  • Acores - Young crowd, good dancey music. Quite raucous the night we attended - but we guess that's a good thing really.
  • Fools and Horses - English theme bar, with the theme being Sunday roasts, fish and chips, quiz nights and live footy. Rua Antonio Barbosa Viana | tel: (282) 76 29 70
  • KUinns - Open 'til 4.00 a.m every night of the year, this bar has an excellent house music policy and the staff work hard to make sure the customers are happy, the customers being a young, mixed crowd of holidaymakers and locals. Rua S. Lopes (just up from the old slave market).
  • Luis's Bar - Offers all the classics, i.e. Boddingtons, Stella, Tetleys, Guiness and Strongbow! Happy Hour 6.00pm to 8.00pm (that's two hours of happiness isn't it?) Opposite the Hotel Lagos on Rua Antònio Crisògno dos Santos | tel: (282) 76 17 31
  • Metro Bar - Lounge / dance music and resident DJ - Rua Lançarote de Freitas.
  • Mullens - Long established and very popular with the 'hip' crowd (i.e. artist types and euro-trash). Good food and music and always a buzz. Rua Candida dos Reis.
  • RGB Bar
  • Phoenix Club - Nightclub with DJs located in central town (Rua des Goncalo) open 'til 6.00a.m during the summer season. An eclectic music policy so you can get rock and indie interspersed with house and hip-hop - | tel: (282) 76 05 03
  • Plum bar - Internet, karaoke(!), pool table, outside patio. Rua Antonio Barbosa Viana, 17 | tel: (282) 08 96 84 | email: plum.lda@netvisao.pt

  • Vino Divino - Italian wine bar and food in Lagos - Rua 1 de Maio
  • Whytes - Another long-established 'fixture' of the Lagos scene. Forever associated in your reviewer's mind with a particularly hazy evening of debauchery and alcoholic excess, but that's my problem to deal with. Trendy, slightly older crowd.

  • The Bull - English style pub with upstairs restaurant. - Rua Calheta, No.5 - just off the church square.
  • Carlos - Cocktail and wine bar located on the esplanade down by the beachfront.
  • Clive's Bar - Owned by Clive oddly enough. We recommend the Pangalactic Gargle Blasters, our new friend Helena, who we met there, recommends the Manhattans, and we recommend her. Clive recommends anything so long as its ordered before 2.00am when he 'JUST HAS TO CLOSE NOW GUYS - I'M SUPPOSED TO BE PLAYING TENNIS IN THE MORNING'. Great bar with friendly atmosphere hosted by a cocktail meister.
  • The Duke of Holland - Open 'til 02.00 everynight. Darts, bar games, large screen for big sports events and friendly bar staff. You're allowed to fall off your bar stool at the end of the night, so long as you don't land on the dog.

  • Luz Tavern - English style pub with pool tables, darts and lots of space + TVs showing sports at all hours - Praca da Republica 2a

Pool table, table football, music video screens and large beer garden. We like the cocktails that make your tongue blue. Located at the top of Luz just as you come in from the old road to Lagos on Rua Direita. | tel: (282) 78 80 41
  • Nautilus Bar - Friendly bar on the Ave. dos Pescadores just up from the church square.
  • The Plough and Harrow - Bar and Restaurant in the centre of Luz (Rua Direita). Once a week they host a jazz session with classic tunes and offering an 'open mic' spot for any would be Ella Fitzgerald's, Harry Connick Jnr's etc. who fancy themselves as a singer. The night we attended it was packed with all the guest singers showing stylish touches.
  • The Privé - The only proper nightclub in the Luz area. Can be deafeningly loud when the DJ seems to have water in his ear, but usually a good laugh. It's also the place with the latest drinking hours in Luz.
