    Hello Happy Hour Friends!  

    After our unprecedented turnout for our Nice happy hour at Le Plongeoir, I propose another fun location to get together in Cannes!  It will be our last outing with a beach feel until the Springtime.  In November, we will embrace you with a cosier ambience, so stay tuned. 

    Bijou Plage is an emblematic place located at Pointe Croisette. In the booming Palm Beach district, this family institution, frequented by a local regular clientele, is characterized by its exclusive and idyllic location.

    Nestled in a protected and preserved bay, without any vis-à-vis, far from the tourist bustle, this private beach in Cannes, full of charm is a real corner of paradise. The restaurant offers seasonal bistro cuisine and food service begins at 7pm for those wanting a delicious treat to eat.

    Please remember to pay for your own food and drinks!  RSVP at your earliest convenience so that we are sure to accommodate everyone.  

    Join us from 5:30pm onwards - Food Service begins at 7pm

    Handicap accessible 

    For any questions or concerns, please text Shae Clements on +33 6 82 51 90 70

    • Palácio Estoril Hotel, 2769-504 Estoril, Portugal

    The American Club of Lisbon was founded in 1947, shortly after the end of WWII, by a group of Portuguese and Americans who wanted to establish a permanent organization to perpetuate the friendly relations between the U.S. and Portugal. The American Club has gone through various cycles since that creation 75 years ago, from periods where many American business persons came to Portugal to manage subsidiaries of American companies, followed by periods when American companies realized it was far better to staff American companies in Portugal with local managers, bringing us to the present where we see a growing percentage of Americans choosing to move to Portugal for reasons other than business.

    We have always welcomed Americans, Portuguese, and representatives of other nations in striving to accomplish our missions, as defined in our statutes:
    - To promote closer relations, mutual respect and cooperation between the peoples of the United States of America and Portugal, and 
    - To promote the relationship between citizens of the United States of America and Portuguese citizens and of other nationalities residing in Portugal.

    Seventy-five years! An impressive record, which we want to celebrate with all the ceremony that it deserves, with the American Club 75th Anniversary Charity Gala at the Palacio Hotel in Estoril on Saturday, October 22, 2022, beginning at 7.30pm with a cocktail reception. Photos and 360 Degree video podium for the guests will be during this time. At 8:30pm you will be invited to the dining room for a 4-course dinner with interruptions for speeches and guest singers.

    It will be a wonderful event, black tie and evening dresses, with superb food and drink and live entertainment. You are encouraged to invite guests to come to the event, the cost is 160€ per person for Members and Guests. There will be tables of 8 available for those of you coming with friends.

    Registration is now open, just click below.

    The ACL will create Membership cards for all the American Club of Riviera and their guests attending our event, everyone can enjoy our Club discounts. As we approach the date, we will communicate more about the event. www.americancluboflisbon.com

    Regarding the Gala, it is 3 months away so we are still in pre-production. All I can disclose right now is that there will be orchestra (21 ensemble), raffles and DELTA Airlines will be gaming flights to the U.S (you all need to bring your phones to the Gala)
