“Great fun in the evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Go there at night, walk the windy streets, have dinner, and then go to the main square in Chiado, sit outside, have a drink and watch people go by, and street performers

“A great selection of bars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Best bar was the weird Capela on Rua de Atalaia. Very atmospheric. Also some good restaurants. Lots of steps and steep roads though! Also liked the Old Pharmacy wine bar on Rua de Diario de Noticias.

“Bar street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Get there around midnight and look for narrow streets filled with young people and small bars. Loved this place. It has a good combination of mostly local and some tourists (depends on the season). The area is very laid back, sosial and cheap. XXL drinks for 3 euros and big beers for around 1 euro. Everything closes at 3 am. I really had a blast there - you should go too!

“Bairro Alto pubs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Very nice neighborhood with many excellent bars and very lively atmosphere during night. The massive crowds on the streets are just fascinating and you cannot see anything like that to dance and drink on the narrow streets.
