Rive-Rouge is the new bar opened by the local nightlife guru Manuel Reis. The decor matches the bar’s name, inspired as it is by the location – on the north bank (rive in French) of the River Tagus and in Cais do Sodré, which was long known mainly as a red-light district (hence the rouge). Iron beams painted red stand out in a space illuminated accordingly, and small tables with wooden benches and theatre-style seats form cosy nooks. Rive-Rouge is somewhere to hang out not just at night, but also in the early evening. The place will be open Tuesday to Sunday from 5pm to 4am. And not only to the doors open earlier here, but there is to be one DJ on duty for the afternoon shift and another at night. Sets will be by house names such as Rui Vargas and Yen Sung, as well as other well-known DJs who have done sets on the Lux roof terrace or in the bar. As for drinks, the list covers all bases, from beer to bubbly. We suggest that you sample one of the house cocktails, the Rive (made with gin) and the Rouge (rum).
