Eat and Drink in Sintra
Sintra is a wonderful place to eat, drink and relax. The cuisine is renowned throughout the region and Sintra is home to many top class restaurants which were attracted by the quality of local ingredients and the wines which are produced from vineyards clearly visible from Sintra accommodation.
In the 1990s, Lisbon established a reputation as one of Europe's main clubbing cities. Things have slowed down a bit in the last few years, but whether your preference is dancing to house or to the sounds of a live band, the city provides a full range of clubs. The major dance spots are concentrated near the river on Avenida 24 de Julho (between downtown and Belem), in the docklands below 25 de Abril Bridge to the west, and across from Santa Apolonia train station to the east.
Since most locals begin the night with a long dinner and bar-hopping for hours, the dancing clubs only really get going after 2AM, and no real hard-core reveler leaves before dawn. Admission is usually between 10 and 20 euros and most clubs are only open on Friday and Saturday nights. A couple of clubs in residential areas are very low-key and you must ring a bell to get in- Fragil and Incognito. On the riverfront, Lux remains the hotspot, but there's now new competition in Comercio Square, at Ministerium Club and Lust.
