Bairro Alto is the place to go for night life! Starting with a meeting point at Largo do Camões (try a ginjinha while there). Then venture throught the old narrow streets full of bars and crowded with people from all ages, all countries! Simply amazing"!

Bairro Alto is a great place to walk, day or night. The shops, bars and restaurants are lively and fun. The area is safe and a perfect place to wander. Stop, eat, drink and enjoy.

Great for night time strolling. Lots of wonderful little restaurants, wine bars and lounges with live music. Some areas are gritty but it adds to the charm. Always felt safe.

I really like the narrow streets where you can stroll. There are many restaurants to choose from. Only downside is the many waiters that are sking you to come in to have lunch or dinner. We visited borth in July and December. In December there are only few tourists around and some restaurants are closed. Looks like waiters are less annoying this time of year.
There are many Fado restaurants in this area.

There are some goog viewpoints to visit in Bairro Alto and have great views of Lisbon, which is a real magnificent city. We spent six nights in an apartment in Bairro Alto. At first view the place is authentic but when the evening came we had the impression that every door was a restaurant or bar. We did not get the impression that it is an area where portuguese people socialize. It is indeed a very touristic place for eating and drinking. There are lots, but lots of restaurants and bars and when reading reviews a lot of people comment on the restaurants catering for tourists. Well, it is the touristic spot at night so every door in there is waiting for you, non-lisbon residents, to enter. It is a place overrated by guidebooks, very deceiving for what it offers. Try to walk the streets during the day and enjoy the architecture of every different house, every door-way, every different window, residents in their windows looking at life passing-by. I recommend it more day time than night, depending on what you look for. We also found some really, but really expensive Fado restaurants in this area.
