You'll find stylish bars down at the Santo Amaro docks where the views are just as great as the drinks. It's a great hangout for a relaxed evening because of the calming waterside location.
Bairro Alto is one of the trendier districts and here you'll find some super cosy wine bars with heaps of bottles to choose from. The vibrant terraces make for a great place to start a big night out.
Cais do Sodre offers a casual experience for guaranteed happy hens. It's vibrant and well-known for the party atmosphere come cool evenings. Culture is at the heart and you'll feel this coming through the sophisticated and energetic range of bars.
Sights & Sounds
Sights - The Parque Das Nacoes is a particularly impressive park where you can lay out, enjoy a little sun and rest any weary hen heads. Alternatively, the shops in the Alfama area of the city make for great retail therapy.
Sounds - Ministerium is one of Lisbon's trendiest clubs. As well as a great bar and restaurant the club itself boasts a fantastic sound system and has some great guest DJs dropping by.

Lisbon is simply superb for shopping. There is something for everyone from vintage markets to top international designers.
Feira da Ladra - Tuesdays and Saturdays until 1pm you'll find a great flea market that is full of retro and vintage design gems. It's is well worth a rummage to snap up some real bargains. Where? Campo de Santa Clara.
