Nightlife in Madeira Island
The weather helps and there are plenty of outdoor terraces throughout the island, but it is in Funchal that you can find the "busiest nights". Nightlife lovers meet at the Lido area or at Zona Velha. Both areas are very popular and highly sought-after. The Lido, a romantic zone of excellence, presents its outdoor terraces by the sea with areas for food and drink. The Zona Velha, which has a large choice of bars and restaurants, is an outdoor art gallery with its Painted Doors, an intervention by artists with the doors and facades of old buildings. Here you will find "Arsénio’s" and "Marcelino’s" where you can dine to the sound of Fado.
Weekends are especially busy in the capital of Madeira. In the middle of the night, join the crowd on the path to discos and nightclubs, like ' Vespas', the Café Teatro or the Copacabana, which is a night club with theme nights located in Madeira Casino, where you can also try your luck.
