Hot Club is a traditional Jazz Club. A must see if you are in the Lisbon area. Normally 3 sessions per night. Fantastic musicians!

At a good location close to Av. Liberdade you'll find the Hot Clube de Portugal. A small, cozy jazz club with mostly local musicians and local crowd. Jam sessions every week and good atmosphere

With its tiny stools shaped like corks, small round tables and ground-level stage, this Hot Clube offers everything a jazz liver can expect. We were not lucky to have actually good music on the evening of our visit, but this may be attributed to chance....More

Mostly sitting, some standing. Arrive at least 15 mins before doors open and you'll usually get some seats.
