Bars and Clubs
At night everyone gravitates towards Rua Galeria de Paris and Rua Cândido dos Reis, two parallel streets downtown. Others descend to the Ribeira district for more bars and cafés, many of which have outdoor seating. Directly across the river in Cais de Gaia is also a number of pleasant cafés for a post-dinner drink, with the added bonus of floodlit city views and of the river bathed in the moonlight.
There are also some big, cool clubs and live music venues, while an alternative and artistic crowd gathers at "Maus Habitos".
The gay community also has a small number of options, for which you should check out GoOporto.com's Gay Oporto page.
