Side A and side B of the city of seven hills

At night, Lisbon’s wardrobes are as alternative as the social and cultural variety that the capital provides to cater to the wide variety of whims and tastes, and that can range from simple jeans to more sophisticated ball gowns.

So, for those who want to fulfil the tradition and hear the depths of the Portuguese soul, there is nothing like dining in a (more professional) Fado house or in a small local bar with “fado vadio” (less professional) in one of the typical neighbourhoods like Alfama, Castelo or Mouraria.

In turn, if your plan is to discover the city’s “B” side, the bars, terraces and viewing points of the historic zones, like Bairro Alto, Bica, Graça, Rua Cor-de-Rosa, Martim Moniz and Intendente, are highly recommended for having a drink.

And with your drink if you also want a dance floor with international flavours, along the river, namely by the Docks, there is a list of nightclubs where you can swing your hips until the early hours.

In the midst of all this, don’t miss the opportunity to go to the British, a pub that appeared in the film “In the White City”, by Alain Tanner, in 1983, and that has a clock whose hands turn anticlockwise.

Note: If you wish, Medidental can organise the whole of your stay in terms of nightlife, namely for dinners and buying tickets in advance for events/shows.
