Top Lisbon Experiences:
#3 - BAR-HOP 'TIL YOU DROP
Lisbon has grown into one of Europe's
Its stylish riverside club "Lux," partly owned by Hollywood actor John Malkovich has topped lists as Europe's best club, and the funky Bairro Alto quarter is one buzzing nighttime street party, especially on weekends.
Since eating is a pivotal part of the Portuguese social scene, start by wandering around this old quarter to choose from a wide variety of restaurants for every taste and budget, from traditional to cosmopolitan cuisine.
Follow that with a drink at a bar with the ambience or music that best suits your tastes, and end by the river, by the Cais do Sodré district or under 25 de Abril Bridge, in a lively dock with former warehouses turned into cafes, restaurants, and bars facing a yachting marina.
A weekend night in Bairro Alto is guaranteed to be one of Lisbon's longest-lasting memories.
