Nightclubs are mainly located in three districts : Alcântara (on the docks and in the area), Cais do Sodré (around Nova do Carvalho Street and on the docks) and Santos (on the docks and in the district around Avenida 24 de Julho). You should notice that most of time an entry in a club cost between 8 and 16 euros including one or two drinks.
