This is a lovely old neighborhood with lots of places to eat, drink, and just enjoy Lisbon. Go in the late afternoon or evening, sit outside and drink in the atmosphere

So many shops, bars and restaurants. Well worth a wee walk about to explore. The atmosphere at night is just fantastic.

Charming district. A lot of small bars - a lot of energy. You go inside to buy and out to drink. Time to be social!

If you're into spend the night with lots of people this will be your neighbourhood. Bairro Alto has lots of tradition in Fado Restaurants, also. During the day it's more quiet.

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
