Where Has the Best Nightlife in the Algarve?

The Algarve has a superb variety of clubs and bars dotted around the region, including Albufeira, Portimão, Faro, and more. From luxury rooftop bars to late-night clubs, you have so many options to choose from.



The nightlife in Albufeira is certainly more tailored towards the night owls; however, you will find some tucked-away bars if that’s what you prefer.

The strip on Avenida Sá Carneiro

The strip in Albufeira is where all the partying happens. You’ll find all the late-night bars you need, also featuring some of the best clubs in Albufeira. The bars are located all the way down to the beach, with cocktail bars on every corner.

Sal Rosa  

Sal Rosa is a hidden gem in Albufeira, overlooking the Praia do Peneco beach. You can grab a glass of wine or cocktail, and relax as you watch the sunset behind the cliffs. The intimate outside seating area is beautifully lit in the evening and perfect if you’re wanting a quiet drink. 



Portimão is a wonderful city with so many different luxury beach bars along the coast. The nightlife here is just as good as anywhere else in the Algarve.


This beach & pool club is paradise. Located on Praia da Rocha, NoSoloAgua features beach beds that you can hire, with a spectacular pool where you can take a dip while soaking in the sun and enjoying a refreshing drink. There are not many better feelings than sipping on a cocktail while sitting overlooking the beach and ocean.

Rooftop Arade Bar

Arade Bar is one of the best rooftop bars in Portimão for fantastic views. With surrounding views of the city, the bar also looks down on the river and docks, so you can enjoy a drink as you watch the boats pass.



Faro is a bustling city that has brilliant nightlife, with all kinds of pubs, clubs, and bars. Here are a couple of places we think you’d love.


In the centre of Faro, you’ll find Columbus cocktail & wine bar, serving up a concoction of unique drinks and an amazing atmosphere. It’s easy to understand why this is an award-winning venue with its talented bartenders and their creativity.
