38 Best Bars in Lisbon, Portugal

Monkey Mash

Avenida da Liberdade

Cited as one of the world's 50 best cocktail bars, Monkey Mash is a playful younger brother bar to the sophisticated, celebrated Red Frog speakeasy (housed behind a secret door inside Monkey Mash). Although the decor and atmosphere here are more flamboyant and tropical than Red Frog, the fruit-forward designer cocktails, many of which feature sugar cane rum, are prepared with every bit as much care and attention.

O Bar Mais Triste da Cidade


When hip Lisboetas want to drown their sorrows, they come to "The Saddest Bar in the City" to do so in style. Expect whisky cocktails, sympathetic smiles from the bar staff, and a musical backdrop that encourages you to wallow before wondering what you were ever sad about in the first place. If you want to raise a glass to the Portuguese art of feeling saudade (somewhere between melancholy and bitter-sweet longing), this is the place to do it.

O Purista


A bar that doubles as a barbershop, or vice versa, this is where Lisbon’s coolest guys come to ensure they look sharp for a night on the town. The interior is decorated like a classic barbershop and is meant to be a comfortable space for men (and women) to relax with a gin at any time of the day or night.

Purex Clube

Bairro Alto
On weekends, DJs pack the dance floor at this local favorite, a tiny space that's nevertheless more of a club than a bar. It's usually quite crowded, although many patrons grab a drink and enjoy it on the street.

There's a refined Japanese restaurant, and a weekend bottle service for those who want wines and spirits brought directly to their table. It's open until 4 am on Friday and Saturday, when the space takes on a clubbier vibe than during the working week.

Sol e Pesca

Cais do Sodré

This former fishing-tackle shop kept much of the original decor---including fishing rods and life preservers---when it reopened as a bar. The lively spot specializes in canned fish and seafood served alongside cocktails and draft beers. Arrive early to catch one of the outdoor tables set out on the famous Pink Street.
