Draped over a Lisbon quayside like a reclining model, Urban Beach is the quintessential cool hangout, a sophisticated nightspot that is a regular backdrop for fashion parties and VIP celebrations. That said, Urban’s friendly staff always welcomes casual clubbers seeking a mellow retreat in stylish surroundings. The lounge-bar overlooks the river and during the warmer months soft plump sofas are positioned on the patio to create an outdoor chill out zone. The dance floor is bathed in lilac and emerald mood lighting, with the occasional laser beam display slicing the air. The music errs towards electric pop, with a more urgent beat at weekends.
