1) Sometimes your home office can shift their expectations of you slightly-- so that you may not be keeping totally normal hours in your locale but can live "off" by 2 or 3 hours (instead of the standard 5 or 6 difference with US Eastern) or off by only 5 or 6 (instead of the standard 8 or 9 difference with Pacific time zone). To your co-workers at HQ, it seems like you come in at 6am their time and bail at 2pm.... Making five hours of overlap with them. Obviously not always feasible but this is one idea.
2) Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon for the late-starters on nightlife. Social dinner at 10pm is normal, late bar till 3am (this is by reputation and very limited ancient experience, so you should verify).
3) Get out in the mornings and find stuff to do. Sure, most people start work in the morning, but not everyone. Go find them.
4) Get used to the idea of packing in a lot of social life into laaaaate Friday, through Sunday nights. Take those Sunday nights to the limit, coz you don't have to be at the "office" til after lunch Monday!
