Summer is on us. And while many sun-lovers are heading to the beaches in the Algarve, others are going to the golden seaside and festive nightlife of the north coast. Surf and sand are priorities for the day, but parties and pulsating beats rule the night. In the center of all of this action is Forte São Joâo, the boutique hotel and restaurant in Vila do Conde. Summer evenings are full of fun and festivities in the fortress.



Forte São João is an interesting place to host a nightclub. It is a 17th century, star-shaped structure with high walls, originally built to protect seafarers traveling up the Ave River. Now, it is a small hotel, with contemporary design rooms created form the former armory spaces. A massive open terrace in the center of the structure is an ultra-cool location for al fresco dance floor and lounge.

During the summer months, Forte São João is “party central” with theme parties and guest DJs scheduled most nights. Check the Forte São João Facebook page for a news about upcoming events.
