The city of Cascais, Portugal is a popular seaside destination for European and American tourists drawn to the warm climate and posh night spots. Clubs in this southern town cater to women-centric audiences with free drinks and stiff cover charges for unaccompanied single men. Ladies are encouraged to enjoy their evenings in comfort, style and without distractions.
This open-air nightclub is among the wildest in the Mediterranean. It has a stage for live entertainment and music, a spacious dance floor and a busy bar serving drinks from 11 p.m. when the club opens until anywhere from 4 to 7 a.m., depending on business. Cover charge for men is three times what women pay, if they pay at all.
