Memmo Principe Real

Why it made the list

Principe Real is renowned for its luxury shopping, its lively gay scene, and its characterful bars, and luxurious Memmo Principe Real is a classy base for exploring all that it has to offer (if you can tear yourself away from the pool and cocktail bar, that is...). For more down-to-earth partying, it's a 5-minute walk to the bar-lined cobbled streets of Bairro Alto.

Lisboa Tejo Hotel

Why it made the list

Guests at this centrally-located hotel can find nightlife in every direction. Start with a ginginha (cherry liqueur) at a hole-in-the-wall on Rossio square, then wander down to the 'urban beach' at the waterfront or to the rooftop bars of Martim Moniz and Chiado. It's not luxurious, but it has plenty of historic charm and, as an affordable base for partying in Lisbon, it's an excellent choice.

Pestana CR7

Why it made the list

You don't need to be a fan of Portuguese soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo (CR7 references his shirt number) to enjoy a stay at this modern hotel at the heart of the Baixa.

Gat Rossio

Why it made the list

A budget-friendly spot on one of Lisbon's most central plazas, Gat Rossio has a youthful vibe and staff who know where the party action's at. There are any number of bars in easy walking distance, and the nearby metro makes zipping around the city a breeze. Rooms may be on the small side, but that's unlikely to be an issue for partiers who'll be out late into the night.

Evolution Lisboa Hotel

Why it made the list

Targeting a young, switched on crowd. Evolution Lisboa has a funky decor and shared spaces that encourage socializing. Happy Hour parties and colorful lounges feel like a particularly upscale hostel, but the smart rooms allow post-party privacy. The 24-hour self-serve cafe caters to those with late-night hunger pangs, and the self check-in/check-out limits the need for social interaction the morning after a night on the tiles of Lisbon.

Aimed squarely at young travelers, Evolution Lisboa is an ul Read More


Hotel Mundial

Why it made the list

The hotel's Rooftop Bar was among those that first sparked Lisbon's ongoing trend for high rise drinking, and Sunset Parties held from April through October gather a lively crowd. The hotel sits right on the flagstones of Martim Moniz square, which, after decades in the doldrums, has now been reborn as a top spot for pop-up bars and street food festivals.

Bairro Alto Hotel

Why it made the list

It's right on the edge of Lisbon's famously lively Bairro Alto, but far enough removed from the action to allow a good night's sleep post-party. The terrace bar is a good place to sink a drink or two and get into the mood for a night's bar-hopping on the colorful cobbled streets nearby.

At the heart of Lisbon's lively Bairro Alto district, this s Read More


Lx Boutique

Why it made the list

There's a fresh and funky feel to this trend-setting hotel in the middle of the party action at Cais do Sodre. The area was a no-go red light district until fairly recently, but post-revamp it's become the city's party central, with late-night bars lining Rua Nova do Carvalho, or 'Pink Street'. Nearby, guests can recover from the night before by sinking into a riverfront sun-lounger and sipping a drink at Ribeira das Naus. Detox or re-tox? It's your call.
