Additional Location Information
The Bairro Alto neighbourhood has an altogether different standing: it is the "neighbourhood". That is enough for it to sail through the years since mid-eighties as one of the oldest alternative areas of the town. Evrything happens here. Art galleries, bars, shops. During the day it is a typical neighbourhood, with small groceries, art schools and shops you do not find elsewhere in town. At night it is the spot for new trends, music, dance and fashion. Like any European capital city.
Built towards the end of the 16th. century, Bairro Alto is a small area bounded on the West by Rua do Século, on the East by Rua da Misericórdia, on the North by Rua D. Pedro V and on the South by Rua do Loreto and Largo do Calhariz. Encarnação and Santa Catarina are the parishes of Bairro.
During the 19th. and part of the 20th. century, many newspapers and printing houses had their premises here. Hence the names like Diário de Notícias or Rua do Século, two prominent newspapers. This neighbourhood was always patronized by writers and journalists and for a long time was looked with suspicion due to prostitution and popular taverns. Nowadays, the artists continue to choose the neighbourhood and double glazing makes things easier for those who live here.
In Bairro Alto you will find all types of people. And all kinds of offer. Italian, Morroccan, Indian, Thai restaurants are true temptations and if you look carefuuly there are always novelties.
In terms of Portuguese cuisine, rich and with Mediterranean influence, try one of Lisbon's best restaurants, Pap'Açorda (Rua da Atalaia, 57) or other simpler traditional ones like 1º Maio (Rua da Atalaia, 8), Tasca do Manel (Rua da Barroca, 24) or Bota Alta (Tv. Queimada, 35).
If you want to loose your head shopping, there is a lot to choose from: Agência 117 (rua do Norte, 117), Aleksandar Ptotihch (Rua da Rosa, 114) or Fátima Lopes (Rua da Atalaia, 36).
To have fun all through the night, discover Clube da Esquina (Rua da Barroca, 30-32), Frágil (Rua da Atalaia, 126) or Purex Clube (Rua das Salgadeiras, 28). The novelty is that most of the night spots close at 2 AM and the next morning the streets are cleaner than a few months ago. Climbing to Principe Real, going down Bica or Chiado will be fine, but Bairro Alto will always feel yours. Your neighbourhood.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great apartment with sensational sea views
Stayed in this apartment for 3 nights in September 2012 and it was even better than the photos. Good location with sensational water views from both the main lounge/dining room and rooftop terrace. Apartment was very well equipped, very clean, and located on 3rd floor (no lift). Wooden floors throughout, it was very bright and airy, and has the advantage of a lovely terrace. It's within walking distance of most locations (uphill), and easy to purchase supplies within close walking distance. The outside looked a little shabby and rundown, and they were digging up the road, so lots of rubble around, but once inside, it's lovely.
