No matter how attuned you are to goings-on in Lisbon, you’ve probably heard of John Malkovich’s Clube Lux, Lisbon’s premier dance club, and the “place to be seen.” It’s three floors of lasers, backlights, dancing, drinking, and preening, with outdoor smoke decks and a too-cool-for-school staff. They do host international legends of the DJ variety, but these nights, it is almost impossible to get in, and if you do make it up to the front, there’s some major “face control” going on. On long line nights, the door charges whatever it wants, so if you’re in a stag party and acting a fool, you’ll have to pay upwards of 100€ if you get in at all. Other nights it’s shockingly empty, but has the potential to fill up quickly, so even if there’s not a crowd when you arrive, give it another hour or so. The downside is that it’s in the middle of nowhere, so it’s a 20-minute walk to the nearest…anything. But hey, if you’re here, you can afford one of the many taxis waiting at the front.
