Lagos truly comes alive at night, as well as being the largest surf spot on the west coast, it is the biggest town this side of the Algarve. Here are some of our favourite sundowner hang outs and many just a few minutes walk from our surfcamps.

1.  Stevie Rays - Rua da Senhora da Graça 9
Open til 4am for a late night post surf hang out or is that pre surf? Over 2 floors SR has a dance floor downstairs overlooked by the top floor cocktail bar, always a buz with resident DJs and live music.

2.  The Jam Bar - Rua Lançarote de Freitas
Always a hit on the party circuit this bar only opens about 9pm at night. Great music, free shots and cheap beer are in order. 

3.  The Three Monkeys -  Rua Lançarote de Freitas 
Open all day and next door to The Jam, another post surf hang out and just as lively with dancing on the bar, shots and cocktails all part of a normal night's work!

4.  Roskos - Rua Candido dos Reis 79
Stylish and classy bar ranked number 2 in Lagos, great hangout for a wide range of cocktails or Champagne, perfect spot for a girly night out!

5.  Inside Out  - Rua Candido dos Reis 19
If you want to start your night with 2 for the price of 1 drinks or fishbowl cocktails, start off here from 9pm until midnight with these offers. Guest DJs and great parties.
