The densest concentration of nightlife options lies near the western terminus of Avenida Luisa Todi, the road leading west to a string of beaches. The most intriguing is Scandall, Avenida Luisa Todi (no phone). A series of rooms with elaborately vaulted ceilings (which long ago sheltered a convent) offer several bars and musical atmospheres. Although most of the place seems designed for talking and drinking, one room functions as a dance club. It's open daily from 11pm until dawn.

Another rich concentration of nightlife options is in the seafront village of Albarquel, less than 2km (about 1 1/4 miles) west of Setúbal. Try the late-night eatery Restaurant All-Barquel, Praia de Albarquel (tel. 26/522-19-46), which caters to night owls of all ages.
