The historical nightclubs of the city of Lisbon will be moving out of the Pink Street, which is located in the Cais do Sodré neighbourhood.
Three historic bars and nightclubs from the Cais do Sodré neighbourhood – the – Europa -, the – Tokyo -, and the – Jamaica -will be moving closer to the river as soon as the city hall of Lisbon issues the authorization.
The current building that houses these three iconic clubs in the famous Pink Street of the Cais do Sodré neighbourhood is rumored to become a hotel.
Founded almost five decades ago, these three bars now occupy a building on the Rua Nova do Carvalho street, which is also known as the Pink Street – or the “Rua Cor de Rosa” in Portuguese – due to the colour which dominates the pavement.
The building is six stories high and it has been built in the year of 1947. The B.Leza nightclub will have new neighbours in the year of 2019.
The closure of the Europa, the Tokyo, and the Jamaica nightclubs has been taken for granted for at least three years, but it was not known until know where these nightclubs would be relocated to.
A few days ago, the city hall of the city of Lisbon had met with the owners of these nightclubs at the Cais do Sodré neighbourhood and they have worked out some details of the agreement.
The meeting had taken place precisely in the space which has been designated for them, which are the warehouses at the Cais do Gás neighbourhood, right next to the river port and next to two other nightclubs – the African club B.Leza and the Titanic Sur Mer bar.
It is there, a ten minute walk away from the current site, that a new life is anticipated in the year of 2019 for three of the oldest and best known night spots in the capitol of Portugal.
The city hall of the city of Lisbon is who owns the warehouses in the Cais do Gás neighbourhood and it has pledged in writing, several months back, to lease them to the Europa, the Tokyo, and the Jamaica nightclubs.
