I've been to clubs all over Europe including the always hard to get into Berghain. Here is just a joke. It looks like a little kid designed the layout of the place. It's filled with nothing but wannabe hot shots on blow hitting on girls half their age and failing all over one of the poorest excuses for a soundsystem... More

We had a really nice evening, the club itself looks really cool - I liked the difference between the techno floor and the more disco-ish second floor. However,... More

We arrived there at 3am and it took 40 minutes to stay at the front of the row. Then we were asked to pay 240euro per Person. We were not drunk or anything else but we had to leave again ! We spend enough money in another place and we will never go there again !

240 euros yay! How generous. Four of us arrived at around 2.30, two got in, me and the other friend did not. I was wearing leather shoes, jeans and a shirt. Fresh haircut and only had two glasses of wine.

Myself and a friend arrived at 2am to find no queue but that we had to pay 240 Euros to get in?! We decided to decline the offer and hang around a bit and try again this time along with some girlfriends...but we were all required to pay 240 Euros to get in. 240 Euros each. Who actually pays that?... More

Went there properly dressed and not drunk. The bouncer told us that the price is 240€ per person. What a joke! We said that we can pay, no problem but that we want A table and bottle service for that price, but he said no and The bouncer then told us to go away or we will have problem. We... More

This place is a disgrace. The rule appears to be that if you're a tourist, you have to pay 240 euros to get in (each!). If you're local, it's free. Needless to say, we weren't prepared to pay. Having wasted a taxi ride going there, we ended up at Urban Beach and had an amazing time. If you do go... More

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighborhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
