A bit grittier than the Alfama but much to see both day and night. Easy to walk to and then it is just wandering the streets. Full of restaurants and shops. Don't miss the restaurant, Stasha!

Lisbon as it was,if you want to experience true Lisbon together with Alafama this is the place to look for. This is where everything happens,numerous restaurants offering all kinds of meals,fado music on every corner,street performers and lots of fun. This place lives 24 hours, you can always find something to do here. Best to experience it at night time... More

Picturesque neighborhood with delicious views of the river from atop the hill. By day, various cafes and restaurants offer local dishes; by night, this is the premier social center of Lisbon. You can find young people, families, tourists, locals, all coming together to experience one of the countless pubs, bars, restaurants, fado houses, etc.

This is one place that just cannot be missed for nightlife. There is something for everyone, food if you just want to eat, bars if you want to drink, and every kind of music. Most of the drinking is done on the streets. The atmosphere is vibrant and exciting.

To arrive there is not easy at all, I mean if you want to take the adventure to arrive there by foot I wish you luck! I leave my lungs on that path BUT it really worth the effort. Once you are there you will be in a very neighbourhood with an stunning view of the city, lot of places... More

This is where the night life is. There is even an Irish pub! The bars a small but a lot of people just socialise outside. Be wary of pick pockets.

This is THE place to party ! With a melting-pot of nationalities, this is the ideal place to meet international people, to enjoy a drink in a bar (or several bars), because this district wakes up at the end of the afternoon, and becomes a real party area ! All the bars are open, you can take your drink away,... More
