Fodor's Review

The docks are alive with music in Alcântara, where late-night bars attract Lisbon's young—and young at heart. Here, in the lee of the huge Ponte 25 de Abril, the old wharves have been made over, and you can walk from here along the landscaped riverfront all the way to Belém (a 30-minute stroll). At Doca de Santo Amaro, known to locals simply as "Docas" (docks) a line of swanky restaurants and clubs now inhabit the shells of former warehouses. These establishments are often more fashionable than culinary, though, and the constant rumble of cars passing over the bridge combined with occasional low-level airplanes preparing to land may disrupt your dining experience. Either way, the people-watching and potential for late-night mirth are extraordinary. On the terrace in front of the marina, the party goes on until late into the night. During the day, the easiest way to get here is by train from Cais do Sodré station or on Tram 15; at night, take a taxi.
