Bairro Alto is a wonderful part of Lisbon with lots to see and do. There are so many restaurants in the back streets, and in good weather sitting outside is fun.

This is a super area to visit and stay a night or weekend. Lots of bars and restaurants. Not the most child friendly area just because there are narrow streets and side walks.

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
