Sited in a former warehouse on the waterfront near Lisbon’s Alcantara district, this is a favourite venue with the city’s youth culture. The club frequently hosts whacky themed nights presided over by savvy DJs. The soundtrack is what you’d expect, a thumping house vibe designed to pack them on to the dance floor. The mix is laced with African rhythms as the club enjoys strong Angolan patronage. Live music is also performed here. A second tier allows for seating and is excellent people watching territory. A real plus is the chill out zone, a patio at the rear of the building furnished with plump sofas. Currently Dock’s Club is open on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights, with not much happening before midnight.
