Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Lisbon

Senhor Vinho
With the highest prices of any of Lisbon's fado houses and a wealthy crowd to match, this infamous establishment is owned by the world-famous singer, Maria Da Fe...
Docks Club
Docks Club is popular with people from all walks. The night is bound to be cheap, unpretentious and within such a close distance of other similarly cheesy clubs...
Belas Clube de Campo
Portugal is home to many of Europe's finest golf courses, many just outside Lisbon. Belas Clube de Campo, set against the bucolic hills of Sintra, is one of them.
Chapitô
Next to a circus school, this restaurant shares the same bohemian and artistic ethos, with a fairytale atmosphere suitable for both couples and groups.
Casanova
This restaurant offers a cosmopolitan paradox; the trendy crowd fits in with the reputation of the area. Their legendary pizzas defy the fast-food label.
Café Buenos Aires
Enjoy watching the tango while tucking into tartines at this lively eatery...
Jézebel
A place to lounge around sipping cocktails or dance away the night in the beautifully laid out space. In the same building as a casino, it's a chance to see some of the best local DJs.
Incógnito
This club offers something extra to the more mainstream meat-markets. Open until late and popular with a young, friendly crowd, Incognito is a founding peg in Lisbon's night scene...
Padaria São Roque
This 'Cathedral of Bread' (as proclaimed by the fans) finds itself far enough away from the Avenida da Liberdade to avoid the hoards of tourists, yet still is able to enjoy much passing traffic...
Esplanada da Graça
The Graça neighbourhood is mainly residential, yet still bustling and vibrant - explaining this café's popularity with the locals. Although offering a simple menu, the view is captivating.
Café Nicola
Situated by a historical focal point for Lisboetas, Rossio Square, the outside tables to this tea room don't stay empty for long. This is the perfect spot for a cuppa and some people-watching.
Café no Chiado
Attracting a young, cosmopolitan crowd, this is an extremely affordable option for a light lunch with friends. Alternatively, young professionals ponder books and enjoy a cold glass of wine...
Procópio
Although the Estrela area is not as famously lively, this bar is popular due to its fascinating decoration and welcoming atmosphere - be careful not to miss it...
Pavilhão Chinês
Located on Rua Dom Pedro V, this spacious yet cluttered bar is consistent with the antique boutiques nearby. It has a polarised effect on customers: love it or loathe it, it is worth a visit.
Café de São Bento
The Rua de Sao Bento also houses a glamorous shopping scene making The Cafe de Sao Bento an ideal place to rest with a glass of wine.
Café Diário
Fabulously located in an area dense with lively bars and eateries, Cafediario remains a popular choice for locals and tourists alike, who enjoy being within the hub of the vibrant social area.
Come Prima
Representing the more romantic side of busy Lisbon, Italian restaurant Come Prima exudes charm and character, serving up high quality, traditional dishes without compromising on value.
