SILK CLUB

At the top of a building in Chiado is Silk Club, one of the most exclusive venues in Lisbon. It offers an almost-360º view of the historic center of Lisbon, covered in a minimalist décor and a chilled ambience. Open from Tuesday to Saturday, it serves dinner from 7 to 11.30 pm. Them is time from some music, played by a resident DJ, to go along with some cocktails.

TERRACE

Terrace is considered one of the most beautiful terraces in the world, mostly because of the view it offers – watch over the city and Ponte 25 de Abril. The ambience is relaxing and cozy, with amid cushions and wicker chairs. Perfect for a late afternoon gather with friends.

PARK

In regard to rooftops, Park is one of the favorites by the local people. Situated on the top of a car park in Bairro Alto, you find a really cool atmosphere, surrounded with wooden tables and small potted trees. If you stop and look around, it almost fells like you are in a garden suspended above the city, with a great view to Ponte 25 de Abril.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IN LISBON

Image this scenario: it’s Christmas time, you’re in Lisbon and you want to go Shopping.

Don’t know how to do it? Fear no more, we got the answer!

To start, you have the perfect scenario. Every November, the Christmas lights begin to fulfill the streets. Chiado, Rossio, Avenida da Liberdade and Lisbon’s downtown are some of the places you can enjoy this atmosphere, while you do some Christmas shopping.

But let’s talk about the goods!

If you’re looking for something “old fashioned”, you’re in the right place. Art deco boxes, vintage sardine tins, handmade leather gloves , retro packs of flour or rice and all kinds of toys, they are all here. Stores like Luvaria Ulisses or Óptica do Chiado are perfect examples if you’re looking for this kind of products.

In Avenida da Liberdade you can find a more high-end kind of store. Brands like Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors or Prada can be found here and you can take a break in one of many kiosks this avenue has to offer and grab something to eat or drink.

If you want a place with a more international kind of shop, you should go to Chiado. Although you have some stores most people can’t afford, there are more affordable one such as H&M and Zara. In Chiado you can also find quality Portuguese gifts, in stores like Vista Alegre, A Vida Portuguesa or Joalheira do Carmo .
