Small place where you can order Ginjinha, delicious Portuguese liqueur. There is no room to sit, you will have to taste it outside like everyone else. Enjoy your shot :)

It was great fun to stop on the street with others and drink some ginjinha. It really warmed me up. I tried it in other places (indoors) in Lisboa, but none seemed to be as delicious (or as good of a time) as the quick stop at A Ginjinha. Also, a great souvenir was to buy a couple bottles of...

We were walking by around 8:00 pm and saw the crowd out front. So we stopped in for a pop of a fine cherry liquor pop. It was excellent. We tried others over the next several days and decided theirs was the best. Try it and decide for yourself.

Worth a pop in to try any (one) type of drink - cherry liqueur. 1.40 euro - a steal for a decent tipple.

A famous little hole-in-the-wall. And the original place to get your Ginjinha Shots. For a little over 1 Euro you get your tasty shot of cherry liquor. Without or (my fav) with sour cherries. Be aware of the seeds though. This place sells nothing else than these great little shots and some cigarettes. But don't miss out on buying a... More

We stopped to try just one but went back for a second! There is usually a queue but it only takes a minute or so to get your shot of ginjinha.

There may be a line, depending on when you go. We popped by several times over our long weekend in Lisbon and never had to wait more than a minute or two, even though there were students filling the squares at all hours. You plonk down your coins and the nice man behind the counter gives you a little plastic... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
