The Lisbon riverfront welcomes as of this Friday another club, another step to consolidate the Portuguese capital as one of the best destinations for partygoers.
White funk, funky, disco, deep house, techno and assorted dance beats are just some of the sounds that will resonate in a new club opening its doors on December 20. Bearing the name Station, the new club features a dance arena on the first floor and a restaurant on the ground floor, taking up a total area of 500 m2 and is located close to one of Lisbon’s busiest train stations connecting the city with the hedonistic beach destinations of Estoril and Cascais and promises to take you on a journey for the senses. Food is one of the elements of the new place, offering a restaurant of Asian inspiration, from Vietnamese to Japanese dishes, under supervision of Chef Leonor Manita. Nobu in London, Hotel do Bairro Alto and New Wook, both in Lisbon, are some of the places this Chef worked in before venturing in this new restaurant where she will be heading a team formed by cooking professionals mainly of Thai origin and who took to Lisbon months ago in order to prepare for this new project. Aside from the inside areas, in the warmer months from March to October Station will give its guests the possibility of having lunch outside in an esplanade overlooking the river.
Music is at the heart of this place aiming at becoming a privileged destination for clubbers. The man in charge of the dance beats and of selecting the resident and guest DJs, bands and further performers is Tó Ricciardi who has been seen in recent weeks supervising the works in order to make sure the building has the right sound quality. With an impressive track record, Ricciardi began his career in 1991, having produced a number of tracks for Portuguese and foreign artists, releasing in 1994 “Free your mind” for Kaos records and which would become major hit worldwide. Nylon records is another venture by this DJs, a label he created in 1999 and which has released a fair number of dance tracks that gained international recognition. Lisbon knows him well, particularly for his DJ sessions at the iconic Frágil, Alcântara-Mar or Indústria, just to name a few, along with other clubs abroad where he did play from Kapital in Madrid to Club Europa in Paris. Station will be open from Tuesday to Saturday and the expectations are high. We will bring you the photos of the place as of December 20, hence stay tuned for more.
