Portugal is probably one of the most beloved countries to travel to, awarded several times as one of the top destinations to discover. Its capital city, Lisbon, is not only stunning but the center of culture, where you’ll be able to find street artists, amazing gastronomy and some of the best nightlife scenes. Here’s our top 10 bars in Lisbon you can’t miss when you visit the city this Summer!
Located in lively Príncipe Real, this is the epitome of a lounge: quiet enough to chat, comfortable enough to relax, and sexy enough for a date. Low-lit and polished, this lounge is definitely the right choice for a glamorous and elegant night out with a touch of mystery. In fact, this one is a local favorite for 15 years – and we can understand why.
Want the perfect rooftop bar in Lisbon for a hot Summer night? Park is obviously the right choice. Located in Bairro Alto, one of the most well-known areas of the city, you’ll find a magical restaurant and bar where you’ll fall in love with the view. But although the outside is magical on its own, the inside, with its vintage chairs and lodge feel with the use of wood and dangling white pendants, is certainly unmissable.
All you have to do is ring a bell and let yourself be swept away to one of the candle-lit tables. With a Mediterranean feel and an elegant and glamorous vibe that is intensified by the mystery and the design of the bar itself.
Set in a former brothel, Pensão Amor keeps its vintage roots with red wallpaper, classic velvet armchairs and seductive chandeliers, drapes and mirrors on the walls. It’s the perfect unique experience that you can’t miss in Lisbon.
A cheerful, colorful bar whose upstairs terrace affords staggering views of the Tagus River, it’s definitely a stop you can’t miss, especially if you want to take a good look at the sunset through the glass walls. With music on and amazing drinks and food, it’s a particularly beautiful bar you should definitely experience this Summer.
