The Follow Follow meet-up in Lisbon will be in the Op Art Café

It’s a perfect waterfront setting often used by Europe’s most popular DJs for their Lisbon gigs.

The Op Art is located in Doca de Santo Amaro, right under the feet of 24 April Bridge, Op Art Café marks a difference among all its neighboring cafés with its different architecture based on glass and wood and atmosphere.

We’ve agreed a drinks promotion:-
2.50 euros for pints of beer
3.50 euros - spirit with mixer

The venue is modern and comfortable - bars can be set up outside as well as inside, a marque will be erected outside if needed and the DJ’s have spots both inside and out.


Santo Amaro Docks 
The dock area below 25 de Abril Bridge along the river in Alcantara between Baixa and Belem is one of the city's most pleasant places for a drink or dining in one of the many cafes, restaurants and bars. 

Former warehouses overlooking an attractive yachting marina have been transformed into a multitude of cosmopolitan bars, restaurants, and clubs for all tastes. 

 
Op Art Café
The Op Art Café is located on the river and is blessed with beautiful scenery. 
Op Art Café in Alcântara overlooks the Santo Amaro docks and Tagus River. By day it's a trendy café and restaurant but, as night falls, DJs spin dance tunes and it makes an easy transition into an equally popular nightclub.

Apologies if this has been asked 100 times already but does anyone know where the place is in relation to the stadium or the airport?

I've just ordered my tickets but I've not booked my hotel yet and I'm just trying to get it all organised.

It's under the big bridge, a 10-15 min taxi ride from the stadium. 20 mins by taxi from the Airport

Public transport by bus and train also.

Cheers for that.

I'm a bit worried about picking up my ticket for the game since I'm travelling independently. I'll be meeting my mates at the bash who are all coming on the official flight, so they'll have their tickets already.

Does anyone have any knowledge of where the central meeting point is for collecting tickets and what time we'll be expected to be there? So many questions.

I'd imagine it will be a few weeks yet before they say where the ticket collection point is but will most likely be a hotel somewhere central.

It will be a city centre hotel, probably different to the one they're using for overnight trip (if there is one). You wont be told until nearer the time. We're going independently as well, so awaiting the same info.

Sam Cooke and I had a wander around last night then down to Op Art to check the sound system and arrangements for the next couple of days.

The public area of Op Art Cafe is a glass box and the walls can be opened up when the weather is hot.

It’s in a prime position in the re-developed port area - 50 yards away there’s a long strip of other bars, restaurants and shops to explore.

On Thursday we will have a “hand stamp” system in operation - once inside your hand will be stamped so that you can come and go throughout the day. Food will be served throughout - we had excellent steaks last night!

Wednesday - today and tonight - opens at 4pm. It’s a freebie due to sponsorship by www.sportoptions.com - Music will be on, you can chill riverside as tables and chairs are set up outside as well. You can come and go from the afternoon until late into the wee hours.

On Thursday you can buy tickets on the door!


GETTING THERE
The 15 tram from Russio Square. Cheap as chips
Trains - to Alcantara-Mar.
A taxi ride cost us 7 Euros from Russio Sq.

GETTING TO THE STADIUM
There’s a taxi rank 50 yards from the Op Art. As there’s a slipway onto the major road system nearby we’ve been told it should take 10-15mins and 10-15 Euros to the stadium depending upon the traffic.

Trains - get the train back to Cais Sodre and then get the Metro out to Campo Grande.

Metro as above or else join the system at Alcantara - http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/61/Metro_Lisboa_Route_Map.png

There were some seriously sore heads this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am at work in Lisbon and picked up my ticket at the hotel first thing today.

Several bluenoses were auditioning for Dawn of the Dead II and I had to rescue a few heading the wrong way on the Metro.

I had dinner out in the main street last night and the cafes and restaurants were pretty much heaving with bears. I hope nobody was done for drugs as the usual crowd of street dealers were out in larger than usual numbers followed closely by the police.

The Pompey Gers were dominating the main square and in good voice.

I didn't get to the waterfront but have heard that it was still bouncing at 4am.

Can't wait to get to the match.
