We were looking for live blues and were recommended Alface Hall but when we arrived at 10pm on a Friday evening, the music playing was Beatles and pop covers blaring uncomfortably in the small venue.

We've tried a couple of live music bars and found this one to be the best. Shows start earlier than other places and seats are scarce so come early if you can. Otherwise, enjoy a crowded dance with the other tourists. Drinks are basic but...More

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
