Mad About Lisbon
Maria Caxuxa

Maria Caxuxa

Once a bakery, this bar is one of the most popular in the Bairro. Posters of old B movies adorn the walls giving the place a retro feel. Music played here is varied and often ambient, along with the soft furnishings, gives the inside a relaxed atmosphere, which is juxtaposed with the revelry outside its doors. Light meals are available for when you get the munchies.

Weekdays: 19h00 – 02h00, Weekends: 19h00 – 03h00
Rua da Barroca 6-12, 1200-050, Lisbon, Portugal.

The Old Pharmacy

The Old Pharmacy

Even if the title didn't give it away, there's no missing what this establishment was before it became a great little wine bar. The bottles of medicines have been substituted for wine bottles which are colourfully lit with wooden benches and wine barrel tables. Probably one of the most original of the wine bars around. Its colourfulness allures locals and tourists alike. There is a large selection of wines available here, many of which available by the glass. The petiscos (small meals) are a great accompaniment to your chosen poison and an extra reason to stay here all night.

Daily: 17h30 – 01h00
Rua do Diário de Notícias 73-83, 1200-142, Bairro Alto, Lisbon, Portugal.

Pavilhão Chinês

Pavilhão Chinês

If there was a competition in the Bairro Alto for the quirkiest bar, this place would win hands down. A step through the door is like stepping into the ol' curiosity shoppe with an uncountable variety of collectables and bric-a-brac including old mugs, porcelain dolls, antique soldiers, war memorabilia and miniature trains, found within a warren of chambers. Each room is lined with floor-to-ceiling glass display cabinets. My sympathies go to the cleaner. Owner Luis Pinto Coelho first opened the doors in 1986 as an antique shop inside an old grocery store. Pavilhão Chinês means Chinese pavilion for reasons unknown to the writer. The theme to most of the curiosities seems to be military, yet the staff are most friendly. Recommended tipple… try one of their cocktails.

Monday – Saturday: 18h00 – 02h00, Sunday: 21h00 – 02h00
Rua Dom Pedro V 89, 1250-093 Lisboa, Portugal.

Portas Largas

Portas Largas

One of the most popular and largest watering holes found in the Bairro Alto, with a mixed and open-minded clientele. Many come here before heading off to the Fragil nightclub found opposite. Most people like to be seen outside the establishment whilst the interior resembles an old tavern. Once a fado house and the evidence can be depicted on an azulejo panel. Worth it to brave the crowds to try their caipirinha or a mojito cocktail. Live performances by African or Brazilian duets is a regular occurrence.

Weekdays: 20h00 – 02h00, Weekends: 20h00 – 03h00
Portas Largas, Rua da Atalaia 105, 1200-038, Bairro Alto, Lisbon, Portugal.

Tasca do Chico

Tasca do Chico

A traditional bar whose upbeat atmosphere is a stark contrast to the morose Fado played here every Monday and Wednesday from 21h00. Things feel somewhat homely and intimate here. Thanks probably to its small size and the closeness of the performance area to the crowd. Look out for their chouriço assado, a flaming grilled sausage and their list of reasonably priced wines. Ever since 2009 there is a second Tasca bar in the Rua dos Remédios, Alfama.

Weekdays: 11h00 – 00h00, Saturday: 15h00 – 00h00, Sunday: CLOSED
