Go to the Lisbon Chess Club, it's in the heart of the Red Light District.
Tell them Geoff sent you.
While in Portugal why not visit Alekhine's old grave. He's now been
moved to France so it will most likely be just a hole in the ground.

I will, of course, make a point of visiting the red light district now that I know there the chess club is there. I hope I have better luck than when I visited Amstrerdam - you told me the chess club there was in the red light district as we ...[text shortened]... couldn't locate it, but I did meet a nice lady who showed me a couple of interesting positions.
