Lisbon: New viewpoints, cool bars and the ‘best rooftop bar in the world’

#LISBON might be known as one of Europe's sunniest capitals, but for many visitors it comes to life when the sun goes down. Here are some of the best options in City of Seven Hills.

Check out Lisbon's answer to London’s Shoreditch and the cantina that turns into a nightclub. Built out of shipping containers, Village Underground Lisboa is a club with an arts space.

Watch the sun set from Lisbon's newest viewpoint. Amoreiras 360º Panoramic View is the place to see Lisbon from a bird's-eye view. On the 18th floor of the Amoreiras Shopping Centre, it offers 360º views over the city and the Tagus River.

Join a street party and paint the town pink. Once a down-at-heel suburb, Cais do Sodré is now one of the city's coolest neighbourhoods and a hub of great clubs, bars, and original shops. Rua Nova do Carvalho (known as Pink Street) is the liveliest spot for nightlife.

Recognized by the UCity Guides as the Best Rooftop Bar in the World, Silk Club on the 7th floor of the listed Espaço Chiado building offers vistas over Lisbon. The boutique Bairro Alto Hotel opened in 2005 and a decade later it is still impossible to find a hotel in this part of the city that can claim better views. Its roof terrace bar, ever-popular with locals and visitors, is famous for its 37 different gin brands!

During the day, Alcântara is a great place to relax by the river. After sunset, the neighbourhood turns into a nightlife hub. At both Alcântara Docks and Santo Amaro Docks, visitors will find plenty of bars and restaurants in converted warehouses.
