Bairro alto....the best place to understand the portuguese spirit May 04, 2011
well bairro alto its a neighborhood in the center of Lisbon, that (for what i have heard) haves the most bares per square meter in europe.

There you will find mainly small bars, where the habit its to grap the beer and come outside to the street, with your group and just be there chating and making new friends with other people that are around you.

for some turists, that may sounds strange, especially for nordics lol, but this, i believe, its a trully way to socialize with portuguese people, and if you dont like this type of night, you still can go to some of the biggest bars in bairro, that have a place do dance and to sit down.

Normally the tourists loves bairro.....hope you guys have fun aswell.....at least me...i am there every friday and saturday at minimum loool

Nice for a stroll during the daytime Sep 18, 2010
Bairro Alto is a picturesque working class quarter that dates back to the 16th century. Originally it was the city’s bohemian centre of artists and writers. The atmospheric streets are quiet during daytime, according to just about every guidebook at night this neigbourhood transforms into a vibrant nightlife quarter with many touristy restaurants and Fado houses. If you prefer to stay clear of large groups of tourists as much as possible, Bairro Alto is a place nice to stroll through during the day (although you need strong calves to handle the steep hills!). The main streets are Rua do Norte, Rua da Atalaia, and Rua do Diario.

The neighboring quarter Chiado is an elegant, sophisticated district of theaters, bookshops, old-style cafes, art nouveau jewelry shops and luxurious international names such as Hermes and Cartier.

A Whole Area Dedicated To Drinking Feb 18, 2009
It is dirty, it is seedy and scummy but it is the place to be for pre-drinks to kickstart a dirt-cheap night out. The only question is, can you handle it?

All you need to do is simply traipse and zig-zag down the little alleyways of Bairro Alto, find a random scungy-looking bar, walk in and order a round of shits. They should cost max 2 euros. I would recommend the shots Kalishnikov (vodka & absinthe with lemon & sugar) or a sex bomb (don't know what's inside but it was killer).

Chasers and spirits tend to cost more (4-6 euro), but who needs that when you get 1 euro shots?
