no matter your age if you enjoy a night out on the town with continuous entertainment it seems as though this neighbourhood has stolen the title for one of it not the best areas to party in Europe now. Old school Lisbon still has style.

Bairro alto is one of the best places to go out at night in Lisbon. It's a trendy place where you'll find a lot of locals and tourists as well. There is always a good combination of both. You have "tons" of bars and restaurants from cheap to high end. Must do in Lisbon

Lots of restaurants, bars and wine/tapas bars. Lovely to wander round for the evening. A good mix of ages.

Loads of bars in this area, ranging in prices from the very very cheap small bars, to the more classy rip off ones.

We spent a lot of time wandering this neighborhood. At night the bars spill crowds into the streets.

The variety of restaurants, the narrow streets, the atmosphere and the Jazz Club. We particularly liked Grapes and Bites and BA Wine bar.

A mecca of good bars and restaurants around every corner. A must for visitors to Lisbon.Only negatives are the amount of street touts selling flashy tat and hats.

Barrio Alto is beautiful! Its all hills so keep that in mind! But you get awesome views of the city and coast. Also, at night you can find everyone hanging out in the street drinking, talking, and dancing. My favorite place to hang out in Portugal
