Costa do Castelo Bar das Imagens
The veranda outside this lively local hang-out is a wonderful place to watch the sun setting over Lisbon’s undulating skyline. Chairs and tables litter the paved area and an outdoor sound system has been rigged up to keep drinkers entertained; a regular DJ spins funk, dub, soul and reggae.
rnThe mood is chilled and a complete antithesis to a club environment. Tourists making their way up to the Castelo de São Jorge often stop by for a drink, which inevitably turns into two. Prices are good and the company is always a pleasure. Colourful characters from the neighbouring Chapitô circus school add their own inimitable sense of charm. When temperatures drop, drinkers decamp to tables indoors. The quirky interior is both fun and curious.
