Bairro Alto is a place that truly changes from night to day. In daylight this bohemian district is a sleepy place, hungover from the previous night, with not much going on except for the trendy shops down Rua do Norte. When the sun sets a new life begins, with restaurants opening their doors and crowds showing up to spend their bar-hopping night.
The bars are small, forcing everyone to spill out onto the streets and creating a street party atmosphere. Spending a night at a Fado restaurant it’s an essential experience. There are many in Bairro Alto, but the most authentic are found in Alfama.
