Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Lisbon

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.
Portas Largas
Portas Largas originally attracted a gay-crowd, but now, although it has lost some of its former glamour, it is a popular choice for locals and tourists alike. A bit on the scruffy end.
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.
Lua
Lua is a popular venue for those looking to kick back. With a decent menu on offer, it's spacious enough to accommodate large groups, and has a chilled, unpretentious atmosphere.
Meninos do Rio
If you are looking for a quiet corner to while away a few hours then go elsewhere. Meninos do Rio is the place for a party with a beach bar, giant bean bags and a friendly upbeat crowd.
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...
Agito
Although not situated within the central madness of this area, the Agito Bar retains a vibrant atmosphere and is conveniently located on Rua da Rosa. Chilled and effortlessly cool.
Costa do Castelo Bar das Imagens
This curious bar provides a fantastic stopping point on the hike up to the infamous Castelo de Sao Jorge. Time your day so you can enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda.
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 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.
