Cool café culture
The city’s streets are flooded with bars and restaurants but when it comes to cafés, Lisbonites take things a little more seriously. Coffee breaks are a vital time to catch up with friends over a fresh brew. Here, it’s more than just coffee, it’s a way of life. Look out for signs to the pastelaria!
Discover the after-dark scene
Sleepy streets that seem as laid-back as ever in the daytime can become some of the city’s hottest evening spots once the sun has set. From high-end wine bars to bouncing mega clubs, you’ll find something different around every corner you turn. Night owls, this is the place for you.
Wander the city’s oldest district
Known as the heart of Lisbon, Alfama’s labyrinth-like streets, adorned with tiles and mosaics, are stunning. Steep steps lead up to the 11th-century São Jorge Castle and at night, you’ll hear the faint hum of traditional fado music. Interested? Simply hop on the number 28 tram as it clinks along the line.
