Bairro Alto, Lisbon, Portugal
Nightlife and Daily LifeThis neighborhood, with its cosmopolitan and bohemian vibe, is probably known more for its bars and nightlife than for its day life. But I would suggest a walk during the day, as you will meet the locals and find alternative commercial spaces, tattoo and piercing shops, and also multi-brand stores.
Besides being a linchpin of the cultural and artistic life of the city, it's a typical neighborhood in Lisbon. Built in the late 16th century, secular houses and traditional commerce can still be found here. The street names Diário de Noticias and Século are newspaper names, since back in the 1970s and '80s, most of the press was located here.
