Los Angeles Times: Lisbon is the City that Rarely Yawns

Lisbon club
Gadi Harel, Los Angeles Times

This weekend’s Los Angeles Times travel section highlights Lisbon and its nightlife. It finds that although “New York is the city that never sleeps, Lisbon is the city that rarely yawns.” The author starts the evening at the cafés in Chiado, then moves on to try the famous seafood restaurants of Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, Gambrinus and Solmar. The after-dinner destination is of course the Bairro Alto district where “it’s suddenly Mardi Gras,” or Los Angeles’ “Sunset Strip as a block party on a Saturday night.” Also recommended is the city’s “plaintive, melancholy sound” in Alfama‘s Fado restaurants, which seems to be “back in vogue with the younger set.” As everyone else does, the final destination of the night is the riverfront club Lux, where it’s time for dancing or star-gazing at the rooftop terrace until morning.
