Bairro Alto

In some of Lisbon’s oldest and most traditional neighbourhoods, you’ll find a nightlife and festive spirit that you’ll find hard to believe in the centre of the city. The streets fill with people of all ages who come to catch up, have a drink, watch the people passing by and discover all the many new things there are to be found.

There’s little point asking a Lisboeta where the best place is to go out at night. The whole city meets at the centre of its nightlife, where there are places to suit every taste and music for every genre. The more experienced guarantee that Lisbon’s nightlife consists of a steady downhill motion – and the more poetic of them swear that every conversation is spoken in italics. Why? Because it always begins in Bairro Alto with its many and varied bars and restaurants, then heads down to Bica with a glass in hand and always ends in Cais do Sodré, where the most popular nightclubs intermingle with the old sailors’ bars, combining an original mix of cultures and ambiances. Whether you like 80s classics, hard rock or the freshest of musical sounds, you’re bound to find something that’s tailored to suit your tastes.


In the Santos area, which traditionally attracts a younger crowd, the atmosphere is more homogenous and rowdy, and is not recommended for anyone over the age of 25 unless they are hoping to relive the madness of university nights long since passed. During the day, Bairro Alto is home to various alternative shops, from records to art and hairdressers; Cais do Sodré has countless restaurants for a recharge and Santos, Lisbon’s design district, is full of studios and unique shops selling fantastic and irresistible objects. Take a different perspective of Lisbon home with you.
