We have chosen the 8 best parties in Lisbon and Porto for you to say goodbye to 2018 with a bang and start the New Year in a memorable way!
Filled with music and fun, this is how the first seconds of 2019 are expected to be. The New Year is just around the corner and the options for parties in the country’s main cities keep coming up! If you’re still looking for a place to spend New Year’s Eve, here are our suggestions:
- New Year’s Eve Dinner, HF Fénix Lisboa
Located right in the heart of the capital, the HF Fénix Lisboa prepares the best end-of-year dinner. With a menu especially created for this evening, we guarantee the perfect balance between the refinement of the occasion and some of the most traditional flavours. You can choose to have dinner with us and then find a party in the city afterwards, or you can stay at the hotel and toast with us at midnight. For more information visit our website.
- New Year’s Eve at Terreiro do Paço
Only 3 km away from our hotels is the venue for the greatest outdoor party in the city. With a privileged view over the Tagus river, this party will host some of the best national artists, who promise to entertain the crowd until morning. Here, 2019 starts with the pyromusical show, eagerly awaited by the thousands of people that make Terreiro do Paço the largest free common area for festivities in Lisbon.
- Royal Palace 2018-2019 New Year’s Eve
Right next to our hotels and only a block away from the HF Fénix Urban, Pavilhão Carlos Lopes (Carlos Lopes Pavilion) hosts the 5th edition of the Royal Palace. Considered Lisbon’s most exclusive party, it has captured the presence of the foreign public, travelling from the most diverse countries and transforming this event into an international reference. In the same year that Lisbon won two World Travel Awards, the tourism Oscars, expectations are very high and Royal Palace promises not to disappoint. For more information visit the website.
- Revengellion Noventeiro (Revenge of the 90’s)
With a strong 1990s style, the motto of this party is the iconic quote from Kevin McCallister, the little boy from “Home Alone”, adapted to this occasion, “Happy New Year, You Filthy Animals!”. Never revealing the venue beforehand, the only thing the organisation has announced so far for this edition, adapted to New Year’s Eve, is that it’s going to be a unique option with a playlist filled with music hits that will certainly please the partygoers. To get all the necessary information and buy your tickets, the organising team is available to answer all your messages, sent through their official Facebook page.
- New Year’s Eve Dinner and Party at HF Ipanema Park
The HF Ipanema Park hotel ensures the best Réveillon in Porto. We have put together a special dinner menu for the last evening of the year. You can choose any one of the available packs on our website, tailoring the big evening to your needs. A live DJ will shake up the night with vibrant music. And for the morning of the 1st of January, you can count on our unparallel brunch, with a great selection of food so you can recharge the batteries you need to start the New Year off right.
- New Year’s Eve at Avenida dos Aliados
This year, music will be heard all over downtown Porto, with many stages set up around the city, such as in Largo Amor de Perdição (Cordoaria), in Praça Gomes Teixeira (Leões) and Praça dos Poveiros. The great host of the evening is, once again, Pedro Abrunhosa, who will do the countdown with his northern accent in Porto, at Avenida dos Aliados. At midnight, there will be a firework display to mark the beginning of 2019. All of this only 2 km away from the HF Ipanema Porto.
- Plano B, Baixa do Porto (downtown Porto)
Right next to Rua das Galerias de Paris, a reference for those looking for a fun evening in downtown Porto, you’ll find the local’s favourite bar, Plano B, who will be opening their doors once again to the best start of the New Year. The vintage and bohemian vibes are perfect for those who want to spend the New Year’s Eve indoors. The stage room and gallery will be playing music until dawn and the organisation ensures this will be the perfect way to start off the New Year on the right foot. For more information, visit the official facebook page.
- Porto Réveillon
They guarantee this is going to be the most exquisite and glamorous party on the city and, this time, it will take place at Alfândega do Porto. The group gabba.pt is known for the quality of their events and this year, just like the last 7 years, they will once again be the team responsible for Porto Réveillon. The event programme starts with a dinner, followed by an entertaining party with DJs. The music for the night may vary from the contagious 1980s and 1990s vibes, to tropical Brazilian sounds and even house music.
The HF family wishes everyone a prosperous new year!
