  • Your Guide to Albufeira Nightlife

    With its varied beach scene, beautiful weather and charming Old Town, it’s unsurprising that thousands of tourists flock to Albufeira each year. One thing which particularly draws in the crowds is the region’s impressive nightlife scene. 

    If you prefer to spend your nights living it up while you’re on holiday, here you’ll discover a brief guide to the nightlife in Albufeira. 

    The Albufeira Strip

    If you want to experience the best Albufeira nightlife, you’ll want to head to the Strip. The Albufeira Strip is located in the Montechoro area, with an excellent range of bars and clubs. 

    If you visit during the summer, you’ll find the Strip gets really busy with European tourists. It’s not uncommon to see hen and stag parties here, and the alcohol doesn’t stop flowing until the early hours of the morning. The Strip lights up in the evenings, giving it a Las Vegas style atmosphere. 

    You’ll find a few restaurants dotted around the Strip too, ideal for starting the night. The Strip itself is approximately 3km long, so you might want to get a taxi to explore it completely. 

    We recommend staying in the nearby Paladim Aparthotel. Just a 15- minute walk from the Strip, the hotel has a large swimming pool surrounded by gardens where you can relax after a long night partying. It is also within walking distance of the beach and old town.

    The best Albufeira bars

    With so many bars on offer, it can be difficult knowing which ones to head to. While you can have a memorable night out regardless of which one you visit, some are definitely considered better than others. Below we’ll reveal some of our choices of the best Albufeira bars. 

    First up, there’s Matt’s Bar which is a popular choice for tourists. Matt’s has VIP areas, great music and weekly themed parties. It’s a bar you won’t want to miss. It even offers tailored packages for hen and stag parties, and you can book a boat party here too. It has everything you could want for a lively night out. 

    If you’re looking for something a little different, Wild & Co is highly recommended. This innovative bar combines an American saloon with an Irish pub. There’s regular live music and a wide range of beers and signature cocktails. There’s constant entertainment running until the early hours of the morning, and it’s open every day of the week.
