Barrio Alto (Uptown)
Hipster shopping area during daytime and youngster's amusement hotspot after nightfall
The Lisbon hipster atmosphere.
When night falls, Lisbon's youngsters move to Barrio Alto seeking chilled Sagres and vibrant nightlife. Besides its nightlife, this neighbourhood has become a hotspot for hipster shopping sprees. As befits a night owl and bohemian neighbourhood, you will not find big brands but as regards sneakers almost fetishist footwear for many - you'll stumble upon Vans and Fred Perry stores. In general, its graffiti and street art covered streets are mainly lined with thrift and vintage stores. As these change frequently, our advice is to walk up and down Rua da Barroca and Rua da Norte and scan their windows at your leisure. If you feel tired, there will be no shortage of sites for you to take a break and cool off.
