Park of Nations – Parque das Nações
Imagine an urban space that brings together some of the more cutting edge projects of contemporary architecture, such as the Oceanarium, one of the largest in Europe, amazing theme gardens, exhibitions centers, shows and all sorts of events. All this set out along the margins of the Tagus river, stretching for more than five km of inspiring landscape, in the heart of Lisbon, within easy reach and generous parking areas, and combining ample restaurant and shopping resources.
Just five minutes from Lisbon airport, Parque das Nações is the legacy of the last world exhibiton of the 20th century, EXPO’98 and it’s a city of dreams that has come true.
To enhance all the possibilities of enjoying the attractions and services available, in comfort and at attractive prices, Parque das Nações has created the Park Card which gives visitors discounts at restaurants, shops and other facilities such as the Oceanarium, the Pavillion of Knowledge, the elevated cable car, mini-train and bowling alley.

Designed by American architect Peter Chermaieff, it played the emblematic role of Pavilion of the Oceans at the time of Lisbon’s EXPO ’98. From the outside the two structures of the building, joined by a bridge, resemble the sails of ship at anchor. The main façade also features a huge mural of 55 thousand tiles, depicting giant sea creatures. Inside, it projects a concept of a global ocean, recreating the habitat of the Pacific, Indian, Atlantic and Antarctic Oceans. Besides the guided tours, the educational service of the Oceanarium also hosts themed workshops, conferences, musical concerts for infants, birthday parties and even makes it possible for youngsters to spend a night in company with… sharks.

In the heart of Parque das Nações, the newest Casino inaugurated in Portugal provides a number of leisure, cultural and entertainment activities, which include multimedia shows and cutting edge technology. The décor is minimalist, taking advantage of the natural lighting that pours through the ample windows and glass walls. It offers three restaurantes and four bars, all different in character. For gastronomic pleasure the top references are the Suite, the Spot LX and the Atrio. Open to view and located in the more interactive areas, the four bars of Casino Lisboa (Arena Lounge, Plau Bar, Joker Bar and Baccarat) are a relaxed and congenial meeting point for visitors.

Discoteca Lux / Lux Disco
With an excepcional location by the Tagus river, Lux is the Lisbon disco/bar that enjoys the highest reputation at national and internacional level. A huge complex that sprawls over three different levels: discothéque on the ground floor, bar on the first floor, with an enjoyable veranda leaning over the river, and a terrace top floor, with a view of over the city and the Tagus. In the bar the space is generous and you can also dance here although the pace is somewhat more relaxed than on the ground floor. The décor is original and changes quite frequently. The music selection is carefully designed and daring, following all the latest trends and ensuring musical diversity. Wine lovers will also find a very fine selection at the bar, which serves wine by the glass. With all these attributes, Lux is very often singled out (by specialist magazines and opinion makers) as one of the best clubs in Europe.
