It may not be widely known but Lisbon is an excellent city for chilling out to a variety of tunes, and The Culture Trip even named it Europe’s underrated capital of music. If reggae or jazz are among your preferred genres, follow their melodies to one of these local bars.

1. Hot Clube de Portugal

Bar, Portuguese

First opened in 1948, the Hot Clube de Portugal is the oldest and perhaps the best place to hear jazz music in Portugal, never mind Lisbon. It has even been recognized internationally and was listed as one of the best jazz clubs in Europe by The Guardian. Hosting a variety of local and international musicians, a night at the Hot Clube de Portugal is one of the unique experiences in Lisbon that music-lovers shouldn’t miss.

Clube Ferroviário

Who knew that a hangout spot for railway workers would now be a hangout spot for everyone? Located down the road from the Santa Apolónia train station, the Clube Ferroviário invites visitors to sit in rustic railway chairs while sipping cool cocktails, listening to music and enjoying a spectacular view of the Tagus River. During the late night hours this spot turns into a club, hence the name, so go prepared for a long night out.
