“All day round something happening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

I lived many years in Lisbon and Bairro Alto is a sure bet any evening on a budget. Bairro wakes up late with dinners between 8p.m. and midnight, which is when the area get's taken over by the nightlife crowds. Very busy on the weekends and you have to choose your bars well to get quality drinks.

“Trendy part of the city”

It's a great area of the city to go out for a drink, have dinner or simply enjoy the quirky shops and diversity of people, whatever you do surely you'll have fun.

“Great night out!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

If your looking for where the hotspot is one the weekend it is hands down Bairro Alto. There are numerous bars and clubs within blocks and the streets are filled with people meeting each other. Tip, get here around 1130 and it will start to get good.

“heard rave reviews, but just thought it was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

not quite sure what to make of it, nice bars, but not what i thought it would be, its ok, but nothing special, not the hub of bars with live local music i heard it to be. worth a look though as its easy to get too, but a bit hilly. great views over the city though.
