Albufeira is always one for a fantastic night out. At night, the focus of Albufeira’s lively bar scene is the pedestrianised Rua Cândido dos Reis, where a fun crowd enjoys live soccer, friendly bars and pumping music. Late-night clubs can mostly be found in the suburbs east of the centre, especially around Avenida Dr. Francisco Sá Carneiro (aka The Strip).

1. Bizarro Bar

The attractive bar, Bizarro Bar, is high above the eastern end of the beach, with superb views over the sands from its front terrace. A great spot for a drink at sunset. One of the most recommended bars in Albufeira, for sure.

Address: Esplanada Dr. Frutuosa Silva 30

2. Café Iguana

Albufeira bars don’t get much better than this! Café Iguana is an attractive café-bar on the clifftop, whose terrace has fantastic views over the town and the beach. It also serves baguettes and snacks, as well as a range of cocktails.

Address: Rua Latino Coelho 59

3. Kiss

Kiss is home to five bars and two dance floors. It’s Albufeira’s best-known club. It often hosts international guest DJs (keep an eye out for flyers) though it can get somewhat lairy. It’s 2km east of the old town. Green and blue bus routes pass nearby, so transport is easily accessible.

Best for: Pumping nightclub with a handful of bars

Address: Rua Vasco da Gama, Areias de São João

4. Matt’s Bar

Matt’s Bar is a lively and fun bar/club with guest DJs, great music and alluring cocktails. Established for around 17 years, this is a firm favourite venue in Albufeira. Put on your dancing shoes, as this is a great night out!

Best for: A cool bar/club with great tunes where you can dance ‘til dawn!

Address: Av Dr. Francisco Sá Carneiro (The Strip), Oura

5. O Farol

Once a fisherman’s shack, O Farol has been reborn as a modern beach bar/restaurant, with a superbly positioned terrace touching the sands. A great spot for a sundowner, it also does good-value meat and fish dishes from around €10 for if you’re peckish. This is one of the best bars in Albufeira for both views, drinks and a spot of food.

Best for: A unique drinking spot with a fine terrace

Address: Praia dos Pescadores

6. Sal Rosa

A small, arty lounge bar with delightful decor. Think Moroccan-style cushions and lovely tiles on the walls. Head to the back terrace which is home to some fine views over the beach. Sal Rosa serves decent tapas, and drinks including a long list of regionally-influenced cocktails. Try the Algarvian Daiquiri, with almond liqueur, lime and honey for something really special. If you’re looking for cheap holidays to Albufeira, make sure to come in the summer. You’ll be treated to endless sun, sparkling beaches and great evening entertainment - a holiday to remember!
