The best bars in Lisbon, Portugal...


Best Bars in Lisbon ~ A Ginjinha

Best Bars in Lisbon ~ A Ginjinha

1 ~ A GINJINHA

This historic bar in Praça de São Domingos is a must-visit for any visitor to Lisbon. In 1840, it became the first place in the city to sell the local liqueur, Ginjinha (or Ginja), when Galician immigrant Francisco Espinheira, whose portrait proudly stands above the bar, was advised by a friar to infuse ginja berries (Morello sour cherries) in Aguardente (a seriously strong Portuguese brandy), adding sugar, water and cinnamon. Today, there's dozens of tiny Ginjinha bars around Lisbon, each with barely room for two or three customers, serving the drink as a shot with or without ("com" or "sem") a cherry in the bottom of the glass. This tiny bar is obviously the first choice of tourists however it still attracts plenty of locals, who seem unable to pass by without calling in for a shot. Closes at 22:00.

2 ~ CHAPITÔ

When we compile our list of the best bars in each city, we primarily look for bars which are so unique, you will not find them elsewhere. This circus, performing arts centre, bar and restaurant fits that remit perfectly. Not only does it offer one of the best sunset views in Lisbon, but you have the chance to drink under a circus tent, or from a fortune teller selling "love potions" of delicious home made chocolate liquor.  On the approach to the Castelo de Sao Jorge castle, it is a very romantic place to catch a show or a sunset.  The restaurant, where you can visit just for drinks, is up a narrow spiral staircase whilst the Bartô basement bar opens later in the evening, offering live jazz music, movies, theatre performances and dance, alongside comedy. debates and book launches.

What started off as a Facebook group for lovers of gin, grew in to a shop and, finally, a few doors along the same road, in November 2015, realised a dream by opening an amazing bar, restaurant and store 100% dedicated to gin.  Located in an old embassy, set in a former palace belonging to the crown prince, and offering over 60 gins, cocktails, great food and a party hosted by a different gin brand each month, this is one of the most stunning environments in which you will ever sip a glass of the juniper stuff.

Best Bars Lisbon ~ Double 9

6 ~ DOUBLE 9

Opened in November 2015 on the ground floor of the 9Hotel Mercy, a short walk from Largo de Camões, this cocktail bar is inspired by the Portuguese relationship with tea - Portuguese merchants first brought it to Europe from China in the 16th Century, and Catherine of Braganza, the wife of Charles II of England, actually introduced it to Britain in 1662. With an onus on 18 (double nine) beautifully presented tea infused signature cocktails, the quality stands out in a city where high end mixology is a relatively new introduction. We'd go as far as saying that they serve the best drinks we have tasted in Lisbon. The house cocktail, "Double 9" was so good, we returned three nights in a row to try it.

Translated as "Ginjinha Without Rival", this tiny 10m² hole-in-the-wall bar has been selling its version of the Portuguese cherry liqueur and Eduardino, a sweet aniseed liqueur, since 1890. Still owned by the family of Galician Licorista João Manuel Lourenço Cima, it seems to be more popular with locals than the other Ginja stalls around town, as the cherries here are said to be sweeter. As well as Ginjinha and Eduardino, you can find Porto, Aguardente (strong brandy), Bagaço (Marc) and Capilé (a syrup). Despite its history and the long queues of tourists, the bar has been threatened with demolition in 2015, following news that a Russian property developer has approval to build a new hotel on the spot which it stands.

One of the oldest and most beautiful cafes in Lisbon, dating back to 1905, it remains one of the most popular venues in town. Behind the gorgeous Art Deco front façade, you'll find a long narrow room with a black and white marble tiled floor, complementing brass fixtures, mirrors and red wood walls. Being close to the University, it was a favourite haunt of intellectuals and academics, including Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, whose statue now stands outside. Ironically, it is claimed, he preferred to take his strong “Bica” Brazilian coffee and his absinthe at the Café Martinho da Arcada (below) and not actually at Cafe A Brasileira - not that that fact puts off the tourists and students who flock here, competing for seats outside on the cobbled square. If you opt for a cup of Bica, instead of the basic selection of alcohol, do as the locals do and enjoy it whilst standing at the bar. A second branch, which opened across town in Braga in 1907, has also recently been renovated.

Open from 10:00 every day until midnight (Sunday - Wednesday) and 02:00 (Thursday - Saturday), this has been the city's main food market since 1892. Since 2014 it has become even more popular, thanks to a tie up with Time Out magazine giving it a modern, more cool look and featuring over thirty hand-picked stalls from some of the best restaurants and bars in Lisbon, alongside some of the finest food and drink producers, each selling the best Portuguese produce. The atmosphere is great, especially as it gets busier and the 500 seats indoors, and 250 outside on the terrace, start to fill up.

6 ~QUIOSQUE DE REFRESCO ~ PRAÇA LUÍS DE CAMÕES

Dating back to 1867, the small Art Nouveau quiosques (kiosks) that are dotted around Lisbon's squares, gardens and water front have remained an important part of Portugese life. Originally opened as small shops selling flowers, tobacco, newspapers, lottery tickets and refreshments, they became an important meeting point with the Quiosque Rei dos Torresmos in Cais do Sodré even selling fried fish and olives. The stalls became so popular as a place to meet and chat, that it was only a matter of time before they started selling ice cream, lemonades, hot chocolate, wine by the glass and even bottles of beer, with seating provided on their surrounding esplanada. Sadly they later fell out of fashion, being neglected and left to rust until the city council stepped in to repair them in 1987. It wasn't until twenty two years later, in 2009, that the spirit of the "kioskos" returned when the owner of vintage shop A Vida Portuguesa, Catarina Portas, and architect John Regal, opened "Quiosque De Refresco", restoring the old kiosk in Praça Luis de Camões, next to the statue of the 16th Century poet, and offering the traditional drinks of lemonade, blackcurrant, milk, hot chocolate, iced tea, mazagrã (cold coffee) horchata (almond drink) and capilé (fern syrup), alongside wine, Porto, Ginjinha and cider. It was so successful that a year later, they opened the beautiful pink quiosque in the romantic gardens at Praça Principe Real (below), and the smallest of Lisbon's quiosques in the gardens at Praça das Flores. In 2013, the stunning red quiosque in Praça de São Paulo was added to the collection, followed shortly after, in 2014, by the bright yellow quiosque in front of the cathedral at Largo Da Sé. Thanks to Catarina Portas and John Regal, this historic part of Portuguese culture looks set to stay. The five, together, make a great historical Lisbon bar crawl.

Away from the art and music, if you're looking to escape the crowded bars in the area, head up to the Nº49 bar on the third floor (Wednesday - Saturday from 10pm), past the art gallery on the first, or, if the weather is good, go straight up to the Terraço ZDB roof terrace, which is overlooked by the surrounding buildings. On hot Thursdays in July and August, the terrace becomes an outside cinema, with movies and documentaries projected on to the wall across the rooftops. Depending on what exhibitions or concerts are taking place, you may be asked to pay an entrance fee.

Named "The Parody" in honour of the satirical magazine by Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, the atmosphere was politically charged as Republicans mixed with those from the revolutionary left. Today, it's mainly the cocktails that are mixed, rather than political opponents, with over fifty on offer. The velvet walls and Art Deco furnishings take you back to days gone by and leave a hint of the building's former use.
