Vandoma Flea Market

Vandoma Flea Market is the place to be in Porto this Saturday morning if you love yourself a bargain. It all started near the Cathedral when students wanted to sell their stuff, and it’s been a local tradition since 1984. Head over to Fontaínhas by the riverside from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and you’ll find a bit of everything, from vintage clothes and vinyl records to books and furniture. It’s a great way to soak up the city’s authentic vibe and meet some locals.

Night out at Plano B

Located right in the heart of Porto, Plano B is one of the most popular clubs in the city. Whether you want to dance all night or catch a live band, it’s the place to be. You can also chill in the lounge and enjoy great cocktails and comfy sofas.

Once you head downstairs, get ready to party and dance the night away. Plano B is a hot spot for a guaranteed good time. They play all kinds of music, from jazz to rock to electronic, so there’s something for everyone.

This week, head to Plano B on Friday. The line up includes Dyed Soundorom, Jorge Caiado, Kulture Brothers, and Miguel Bruschy.
