“Don't leave without having a drink at night here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This neighborhood is a bit boring and deserted during the day but comes completely to live after 10 pm. There are hundreds of bars and restaurants and is bustling with people of all ages and types. Find a bar and buy a caipirihna and start some people watching late evening and enjoy the fantastic atmosphere.

“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!
