Bairro Alto by night Rua da Atalaia4

Bairro Alto in Lisbon is posssibly one of the best spots in Europe for a night out!

Wander through the lanes of bars, fado houses and clubs – every night hundreds of people are drinking mojitos and cheap beer out of plastic cups, listening to everything from samba to African rhythms, but mainly electro and techno.

‘A Capela’ is one of the most popular bars in Lisbon’s heart of funky bars and restaurants.

    This is the best bar I have been in Lisbon; the combination from super relaxing dance music and the very nice people behind the bar makes this the best Bar in Town, you do not want to fail to spot.
    I also did meet the owner Pedro Silva, he is a very nice and open person, and he has the best Protégées Wine and Port in his bar.
    I want to thank Pedro and his team, for giving me and my friend’s a very good time.
