A historic maritime city, welcoming modern explorers

Europe’s westernmost capital is probably also its most stunningly situated, on hilly ground in a bend of the River Tagus where it broadens out into a giant bay. Writers rave about Lisbon’s unique light; modern tourists also warm to the mild climate and relaxed feel of its summer nights, when the bars' patrons spill out onto cobbled streets. Centuries of maritime exploration have also left a rich artistic heritage.

Family-run beer cave Editors' Note

Chimera Brewpub is a delightful restaurant and brewpub housed in a gorgeous converted coach tunnel from 1740. Serving up New York deli-style sandwiches, organic wines, and their own craft brews, Chimera is the dream beer cave.

Chimera Brewpub is Lisbon’s first brewpub to introduce its own full line up of brews from tank to tap (12 in total), and all at great value. An historic, cavernous venue, it’s a lovely pub with a great vibe. Run by Adam and his family, every detail about this place is taken care of, from the excellent beers to the delicious food. The home-brewed beer features a Chocolate Porter, Pale Ale, American Stout, and Bohemian Pilsner. Even if you’re not up for a beer, you’re catered to with a fantastic organic wine list. The NY deli sandwiches like the classic Reuben are top-notch—they cure the pastrami themselves. The staff are attentive and happy to fill you in on processes, you can even ask to see the basement: the password is ‘Grainfather’.
