Lisbon’s new hip neighborhood

As in every city with a history, old quarters that no one used to set a foot in are suddenly the places to go to for out of the ordinary eating experiences or vibrant cultural events. In Lisbon those neighborhoods are Beato and Marvila.

Curiosity shop

You find vintage furniture, lamps, old doors and typewriters en masse in this antique store located in a big warehouse. The prices are a bit on the expensive side, but it’s a fun walk down memory lane.

Be more social

South American non-gourmet food is the concept at El Bulo Social Club, mastered by TV celebrity chef Chakall. The 700sqm wine storage warehouse, with its colorful wall paintings, has room not only for eating and drinking guests, but also for tango dancing.

Top secret pizza

Aquele Lugar Que Não Existe – the place that does not exist – is probably the most secretive pizzeria in Lisbon. With no website or sign on the façade, just a closed door, you might think you’ve ended up in the wrong place if it weren’t for the line of people waiting on the street. To make sure you get in, book well in advance.

No-fuss food

O Jardim do Poço di Bispo doesn’t look much with its bright fluorescent light, paper cloths and fado singers on the walls, but you’re guaranteed authentic food – and no tourists. The menu is only in Portuguese so make sure you google the dishes if you don’t want snails on your plate.

Independent beer

The micro-brewery Musa is one of many small startups in Lisbon, and one of several breweries in the area. Musa brewed its first craft beer in 2016, and today the old warehouse houses both the brewery and a hip bar. Order a tray of the different beers you can taste.
