Lisbon is Gay

Gay and lesbian - it's all queer. Lisbon considers itself a very gay-friendly city, but centuries of Catholic dominance still make public sentiment quite conservative. While public opinion is changing for the better, you still don't see many public displays of affection outside of a couple of neighborhoods. The most gay-friendly neighborhoods are the Chiado, Principe Real, Bairro Alto, and Santa Catarina.


Trumps

2 dance floors, 3 bars, pop music, and young crowds. 27 years and still going! Hetero friendly.

Portas Largas

In the confines of a typical Portuguese tavern, you will find a popular place for flirting in the Bairro Alto district.


Purex

Great mixed and party girl meeting point in the Bairro Alto district.

Frágil

Good dance club and grandfather of the scene. A great option if you want to keep partying in the Bairro Alto after things start to wind down elsewhere (for gay and straight).


Finalmente

Kitch drag queen shows beginning around 03h. After the show it's dancing and cruising.

Maria Lisboa

A big club with plenty of women in Alcântara. One of the most fun larger clubs in town.
