For those of you who just can’t get away from the shore day or night during the summer, there has always been the Tamariz beach club by the beach of the same name in Estoril just outside Lisbon. Others prefer the beaches of Costa da Caparica to the south and stay at their bars after the sun goes down. But since last week there is a beach bar/club right in the center of the capital. It is found on the riverfront in the Santos district, right next to the restaurant “Kais.” Â It’s called “K Urban Beach,” with the “K” in the name coming from “Grupo K,” the team behind some of Lisbon’s hottest clubs and restaurants (Kremlin, Kapital, Kais…), as well as Kubo, a bar that heat up Lisbon’s nights for the past two summers and that we told you about last year: Magic Kubo
Kubo will return as a permanent venue later this year, so its seasonal substitute is this”urban beach” which is essentially everything that made Kubo a success, plus some sand. There are two bars, a dance floor, and a dining area serving light meals, all before the long chairs and tables over the sand. The DJs are some of the ones that mix at other “K” clubs, and the music will be spinning until 4AM every day of the week. The opening time is 6PM, so head on to the beach by the Tagus and have a drink with your feet in the sand right after work or following a full day of sightseeing.
