Cocktail Bar
“This is a place with a very characteristic refinement, which has transformed it into a cult bar for Lisbon-goers and tourists. It was with pride that the manager told us that when tourists return to Lisbon after a first visit, they always go back to The Chinese Pavilion! And yes, you can easily see why they return... Besides all the local charm, it is impossible to admire the entire collection in just one visit!”

Cocktail Bar
“Beautiful spot for sundowner drinks and finger food. The entrance is hidden. Go through the sliding glass doors of the (pretty run down) Martim Moniz mall, and look for the elevator up to TOPO Martim Moniz. ”

Bar
“The view is from Lisbon, the decor is inspired by India, but the atmosphere (and the menu) is cosmopolitan. This large café-terrace restaurant on a large city-facing terrace serves light meals throughout the day but also serves as a bar. While everyone naturally chooses to stay on the terrace, on rainy days there is a shelter in the interior rooms, which are equally pleasant.”

Café
“Noobai is a Rooftop Bar and Restaurant located in Santa Catarina Viewpoint, near Bairro Alto. Being perched on a Lisbon hill, you have a panoramic view of the old houses of the city, the modern buildings, the Tagus river, the harbour, the 25 de Abril bridge and the amazing sunset. It consists of a living room and three terraces prepared for summer and winter. The name Noobai comes from the Creole "Nu bai" which means "we go". The word was stylized to become more cosmopolitan, but it has not lost its meaning that translates into an invitation to the celebration of life, the conviviality between friends, the contemplation of nature and the city”

Nightclub
“It opens at 8PM as a dining destination, thanks to its two restaurants (one for sushi, another for meat), and at around midnight it turns into a bar and club partying until 4AM. It's found next to the Kais restaurant, which belongs to the same group, and is the perfect destination for a cocktail on the waterfront, often to the sound of national and international DJs. The sand and the location make this as close as you get to the beach in the center of the city. It opens from Wednesday to Saturday (also on Tuesdays and Sundays during the summer).”

Lounge
“he view, the snacks (the octopus with the lagareiro, € 13, is the most popular) and the cocktails (we recommend the mojitos, € 7.5) make it irresistible. Rain or shine, with or without company. The bar opened in October 2010 and is one of the best places to have a drink after dinner and watch the boats on the river or the traffic in the distance on the bridge.”
