About your guide

My name is Paulina,

I am a “big city child”, I am fascinated by languages and the diversity of cultures. A culturally vibrant city like Lisbon has something for everyone. It opens doors to worlds full of history, music, dance and culture. It offers space for communities, associations and backyards where the art, music and life of its inhabitants can take place.

It is in my interest to give visitors access to this world and at the same time to stand up for its preservation, so that Lisbon never loses its charm; This special feeling of feeling directly welcome in this city that unites different worlds and where there is room for everyone.

What we’ll do

Getting here I quickly and by total chance caught onto an awesome Portuguese concept called “associations”, a magic middle ground between charity and artist collective.

I joined one by total chance because I was looking for an artist studio and a friend of a friend pointed me in the direction of these crazy British guys. Since getting on board we’ve been throwing huge nights in our abandoned fishing warehouse that sits on the river-facing Lisbon, and it’s been such an exciting journey.

Inside the city there are heaps of these underground art collectives that run secret, local nightclubs and bars that you can only find if you know where they are or who runs them. I’d love to show some international travellers what the underbelly of Lisbon looks like – it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen!

We will be visiting the following associations:
-Rda
-Anjos 70
-Crew hassan
-maybe Desterro
-Sirigaita.

Each association ask for a “donation” so that you can become a member, which allows you to go inside, so don’t frown if they ask you for €3 on entry.

If you want to see a side to a city very few tourists have ever seen, come with me! I really look forward to showing you.

All the best.

What else you should know

Prepare for smokey rooms and some crazy performances.

What to bring

Casual dress and €20 for drinks and entrance…

Time: 10:30pm-2:30am

    I can highly recommend Martin’s underground tour! It doesn’t matter if your are travelling with someone or solo, you will have a great time anyways! We got to see a lot of cool bars that would have been a hazzel to research and to try to find by ourselves. Our group connected very well and I had a wonderful night thanks to Martin!

  2. Carla Campas

    Such a great evening! Martin is friendly and personable and showed us some wonderful sights that we wouldn’t have likely seen otherwise. It was a unique experience that my friend and I will surely remember for years to come. Although I don’t remember much after the vinho verde, the final stop was incredible.

  3. Celia Brion

    Hands down one of the best underground tours i went on. Martin was professional yet very friendly and approachable. I felt safe, taken care of and met some amazing people along the way. The places we visited were a mix of hidden little places and posh with a view. I highly recommend this.

  4. Celine Lagasse

    Great experience getting together in a fun and friendly mix of people from around the world to have a night out, excellently guided by Martin. Perfect start of my weekend in Lisbon.

    This was an amazing experience. As a woman traveling by myself, these are the type of things I enjoy because I can experience the nightlife in a city in a group and feel safe. I had difficulty meeting up with the group initially (my own fault) and decided to go back to my hotel. Then Martin messaged me and convinced me to come back out and meet up with them. It was a great night. He did a good job of getting everyone in the group to connect with each other and he was very personable. I would happily do it again.

  7. Yung Kohlmeier

    Highly recommend it to everyone. :)) Perfect way to meet really cool people whilst travelling solo. Martin definitely knows exactly where to go to have an amazing night out Lisbon style.

  8. Zana Utsey

    This was a wonderful experience to get to know Underground Lisbon nightlife! We went on our first night in Lisbon and set us up for getting to know the city! The bars were all cool and different from each other and unique in their own way. We also made friends with everyone there! Such a fun night!
