Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Lisbon

Mini Bar
One of Chef José Avillez’s stylish culinary offerings, Mini Bar serves up masterful mini dishes in a 30s and 40s-inspired bar within the São Luiz Theatre.
Silk Club
At once a restaurant, rooftop bar and club, Silk Club is an exclusive night spot that attracts beautiful people from across the city to Chiado.
Snob
The journalistic crowd who enjoy the late opening hours of Snob are the city's young design elite, who have recently taken residence in this area; the bar also offers a late-night menu to enjoy.
Clube da Esquina
Clube da Esquina attracts anyone and everyone. Making no statements in its civilised decor and menu, this is nonetheless a popular choice for locals and tourists alike.
Net Jazz Cafe
Part of the Chapito Circus School, this is another space functioning as a cafe throughout the day and an evening programme with live music. Popular with an arty set; a very cool experience.
Baliza
Perfectly situated for a post-shopping spritzer, Baliza can be found off Lisbon's busiest shopping streets. The evenings become popular with a relatively glamorous media set.
Bicaense
Bicaence can be found off Lisbon's busiest shopping streets. Popular with a glamorous media set, there is just enough exclusivity without feeling pretentious...
Portas Do Sol
A Lisbon liquid lunch out on the terrace is the order of the day at Portas, a buzzing boozey lunch venue...
Cerca Moura
The Alfama area is heavily residential and fairly difficult to navigate. However it is worth a visit for a removed and peaceful view of the city, as is this café built into the original Moorish city walls.
Santiago Alquimista
Host to live performances, from karaoke to comedy, this is a popular choice for a youthful media crowd, following dinner out in a nearby culinary delight...
Herois
Centrally located within the Baixa area, Herois is situated perfectly for a post-shopping spritzer. It retains an exclusive feel, with chic decor and expensive drinks...
Parodia
This intimate drinking den in the affluent district of Campo de Ourique also preserves a hint of exclusivity with its doorbell policy - but no need to worry; anyone is welcome...
Caxim Bar
Located just seconds from Castelo de Sao Jorge and its grounds, this dimly lit cave has Morrocan inspirations, giving an unmistakable feeling of having crossed into another continent.
Bar Ache Cohiba
This recent addition to Lisbon's night scene is popular for locals who are tired of the area's institutions. Situated in the hubbub of the city, Ache Cohiba guarantees lively conversation and an eclectic clientele.
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.
