If you have decided to spend your vacation in Lisbon Portugal then you have made the right choice. Whether you're here on a one week all inclusive vacation package, or just for a couple of nights, you (and your family) won't regret your decision. With the mix of old and new Lisbon will appeal to all generations. Below we have compiled a list of the top five reasons to travel to Lisbon.
Night Life: Lisbon is gaining reputation as one of Europe's trendiest cities. Brits, Spaniards and Italians flock here to soak up its rich nightlife. The city caters to all offering everything from jazz to hip hop to electronica. The major concert venues are situated at Coliseu dos Recreios and the Atlantic Pavillion.
The Barrio Alto has been the traditional nightlife area in Lisbon. This is the favourite Lusos' area to begin the night. Among its main attractions there are the fado locals and some of the most charming bars of the city. This is a very particular neighbourhood, full of little streets with tiny bars. There people use to pile in the local's doors drinking and talking. The "pretinha" (black beer) is the typical drink of the Barrio Alto, but they use to drinkd all kind of the "caipirinha" too. About four in the morning tha Barrio Alto bars use to close and people go to other nightlife areas!
If you are interested in Lisbon‛s culture why not try a restaurant of Fado where dinners are accompanied by a live singing and music.
Later on you can have a drink in one of the many bars present all around the city or you might choose for something different; live music bars and bars with Dj are something very typical in Lisbon.
Live music bars usually offer Jazz and Blues concerts but there are also some good alternatives to suite other musical tastes.
In the “live music bars” section we present a list of the best venues with a description, pictures and the address including maps.
Bars with DJ‛s are very common in Bairro Alto but you can find them also in other districts. The best DJs warm up in these venues before moving on to the big clubs.
