This paper explores the newly emerged vintage-style nightlife in the former harbour quarter of Cais do Sodré(Lisbon downtown) and more specifically, a recently renewed hostel building called Pensão Amor. It argues that this venue is currently playing a key role in the gentrification of the urban nightscape where its traditional nightlife is today being supplanted by a vintage-style nightlife. Furthermore, it demonstrates that the consumption of this recently promoted vintage nightlife as a new form of social distinction can be also seen as the (re)production strategy of a socially and morally sanitized nightlife which marginalizes everyone who is seen as inappropriate, or in other words, socially perilous to the city branding of Lisbon
