Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Lisbon

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.
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.
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.
