Walk around the neighbourhood at night!

Put time aside to walk through the neighbourhood at least once. Jazz bars, Pasteis de Nata cooking til 1am, excellent restaurants and just the general atmosphere are all amazing.

What a place! At first you will be a bit scared of the narrow lanes and the dim lit alleys... but after a couple of nights there... i loved the place! It is very near to the city and all within walking distance. As u will know, Lisbon is a hilly city, so make sure you put on your walking... More

We thoroughly enjoyed going around the hills where lot of youngsters visit for dance and parties during night. Lot of pubs, restaurants and activities start after 11 in the night and goes on till early morning.

It's not only a trendy place nowadays, but it is also a place where the old meets the new. Here you can find a misture of different ages neighbours; you can find typical restaurants "Casas de Pasto" where you go for a quick/ cheap meal and eclectic restaurants where you can ear the "Fado"; new business directed to all sorts...

the whole area is filled with restaurants, landmarks and pretty art. It's perfect to go for a walk, specialy during the night while the lights are on. Super romantic for couples. The little train is a bit expensive tho, you can just walk to the top. takes about 10 minutes and a strong pair of legs.

Bairro Alto is a neighborhood whose dominant features are the ancient steps that will torture your feet while climbing to the top. Of course you can stop off for a drink at any of the many bars and cafes along the way. There are easier ways to get up there but you probably wouldn't remember them after you were home.... More

This neighborhood really packs in the bars and restaurants and to great effect. Quiet and quaint by day (the buildings date back to the 1500s apparently) the narrow pavered streets come alive at night, with people drinking in the streets and a different watering hole every 10 feet (even on weekdays the party goes until 2 a.m.). However I found... More

A grid of narrow streets, quiet during the day with the locals getting about their business. At night its restaurants and bars fill up with both locals and tourists. Every sort of food and drink is on offer at mainly excellent prices.
