Hg2 : The Hedonist

Kremlin

Love it or hate it (and most Lisboetas learn to love it), Kremlin is an institution in Lisbon’s nightlife. The oldest of the city’s superclubs, it opened with a fanfare of international DJs and was included by DJ magazine in its top 10 clubs in Europe. Twelve years later the heavyweight line-ups have been replaced by an even heavier drug problem and the odd shooting.

However, the benefit of a late licence (most clubs close at 6am) makes Kremlin the perfect venue to witness the multiple cross-sections of Lisbon’s social scene collide. Referred to by locals as a ‘people zoo’, at one time the club was filled with a pantomime of characters; ice-laden pimps would prop up the bar with a high-class whore on each arm only yards away from well-to-do businessmen and immaculately turned-out trendsetters.

These days the clientele is much less colourful and far more unsavoury. Strict club etiquette applies at all times; always smile and don’t step on anyone’s toes. Perfect for people-watching…from a distance.
