Experience Lisbon through the eyes of those who know it best: the locals. This list includes spots with the best views and coolest ambiances. After all, a Lisboeta wouldn’t choose to go anywhere offering less than the best the city and the surrounding area have to offer its residents. Here are our picks of some of the coolest hang-outs in Lisbon.
Visit Park Bar in the summer and there’s a high possibility that the venue will be overrun by tourists, but during autumn, winter, and spring the locals like to plan their evenings/nights out at this popular bar. Located at the top of a parking garage in lower Bairro Alto, it’s a unique spot with excellent views towards the Tagus River. The terrace is covered with trees and shrubs, adding shade and earthy tones to the decor, and in addition to high-quality cocktails, beer and wine, the bar also serves burgers and Portuguese-style sandwiches.
