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

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