If the Algarve is Portugal’s Riviera, then Albufeira is the Algarve’s St. Tropez. Its beautiful beaches, rocky grotto, and water park attract sun-seeking travelers in droves. And Albufeira nightlife is the hottest in the region with dozens of clubs welcoming partiers who dance the night away.
The Strip – which is now three or four blocks deep – is where most of the action is. Most clubs there stay open until 2 or 3 in the morning. Bars located around the Old Town square are a little less rowdy.
The largest club in the Algarve, Kadoc is midway between Albufeira and Vilamoura. It’s not hard to find – just look for the lights circling overhead. Some of the top DJs in Europe come here, and on Friday and Saturday nights, it’s packed. In fact, as many as 7,000 partiers jam the five dance floors and outdoor terrace.
Although smaller, Kiss is an Algarve legend. In business for 29 years, it’s on Areias de Sao Joao. During the summer, international DJs spin Latin, Electro, and R&B for enthusiastic crowds who pack the three dance floors.
Matt’s Bar is extremely popular with British vacationers. It’s a good place to start the evening, although you may want to save riding the mechanical bull for later.
For something more sophisticated, try Bank, which opens at 11AM. During the day and early evening, it’s a restaurant. But it heats up later, with live music, a terrace overlooking the main square, and a lively crowd.
Beach near the Strip in Albufeira
Attracting a stylish, upmarket crowd, Le Club is located at Santa Eulalia, overlooking the beach. Come for Italian cuisine and designer cocktails, then stay for dancing. The beach-front venue gives Le Club a festive, holiday atmosphere.
Built right into the cliffs, Canico is one of the most striking venues anywhere. An elevator takes guests from the top of the cliffs, through the rocks, and down to the beach. At night, a DJ sets up out on the sand and revelers dance under the stars against a backdrop of the illuminated cliffs.
Pure Vilamoura is the newest club on the scene. LED lighting changes the color of the lounge and 80s music gets the party started. Big-screen TVs televise sporting events so fans never miss a play.
The Albufeira area has more than its share of Irish pubs. DeBarra is in the Quinta Shopping Center has wood paneling, tall barstools, and Irish beer on draught, plus a big deck overlooking the golf course. The Irish Cabin Pub in Vilamoura has a huge terrace that looks out onto the marina. During the summer, there’s live music every night. The Block Stove in Alvor is also Irish owned and operated.
