The Santo Amaro Docks (Docas de Santo Amaro), located beneath the 25 de Abril Bridge along the waterfront between Baixa and Belem, is both a lively marina with moorages for hundreds of boats, as well as one of Lisbon’s nightlife hot spots.
Locally known simply as “Docas,” this waterfront area features restaurants, bars and clubs housed in old warehouses. It’s a lively place for an afternoon drink, and the waterfront is landscaped all the way to Belem, making for a pleasant 30-minute stroll. Things really start heating up come nightfall when Lisbon’s youth turn out to party late into the night.
To get to Santo Amaro Docks, take a train from Cais do Sodre Station to Alcantara Station, then walk toward the bridge.
