When I went to Portugal, I had just been in London and Paris.  Lisbon was cooler and friendlier than all of them.

Another benefit is that everything is cheaper in Portugal.  If you are a smoker, you will enjoy the 2.45 euro cigarettes that are the same price whether you buy them at a bar or drugstore.  If you are a drinker, you will love the cheap wine and cheap drinks.  And the coffee, amazing shots of expresso almost always less than a euro a pop, is incredible.

Lisbon, Portugal

Footprint guides has a good article on bars and clubs in Lisbon

Bars, Clubs

Capela,
Rua Atalaia, 45, T 21 347 00 72. Open Daily 2000-0400. A tiny former Gothic chapel then brothel, with DJs by the window usually spinning chillout techno and house. Hipster travel and company wandered into this great bar, made friends with the awesome owner and found a place where we could feel at home.  Lots of good makeout action to watch as well.

Lux, Avenida Infante Dom Henrique, Armazém A, T 21 882 08 90. The most expensive drink I bought in Lisbon was at this amazing multilevel club that gets top notch djs.  The night I was there it was the man behind Pizzicato 5.  Two outdoor decks, one with a giant high heeled shoe, a main level with giant birdcages filled with dancers, this place is both mainstream and ultra cool.

Porto-
