    Ribeira nightlife: Praça da Ribeira

    Pra��a da Ribeira, Porto

    Around the square, several bars and restaurants can be found. The interesting thing on these bars are that they're cheaper than any others in the city. Also the people that fill them by night are mostly students.
    The relaxed atmosphere is contagious.

    Ribeira nightlife: Relaxed atmosphere

    In Ribeira several bars and restaurants can be found... the curious thing is that most of them have a funny name. As an example this picture was taken in a bar called Uma velha tinha um gato, which means "An old Lady had a cat"...
    A restaurant called Chez Lapin is also a must... and there's an alive rabbit there which reminded me of the Monty Python's movie "The quest for the Holy Graal"!!!

    Dress Code: Totally relaxed

    Ribeira nightlife: Ribeira

    Ribeira is the area to go if you want to spend a fun evening. There are lots of bars, pubs and discos in that area. Some of these places are pretty small, so it may get crowded. Bear in mind that for the Portuguese, a 'night out' only begins around 11 p.m. and often ends when the sun comes up. So don't be too surprised if you go to a bar earlier in the evening and there isn't too many people there.

    Dress Code: Some discos prefer that you dress somewhat 'sharp', but most places don't have any special dress requirements.

    Ribeira

    What during the day is a nice familiar neighboorhoud becomes a student night spot with loads of small outdoor bars and pubs.

    In the last few years it's popularity has been reducing due to the new places that came up in town. But it still is a good choice for one to have a good evening.

    Dress Code: Informal, no need to dress up.

    Ribeira neighbourhood is a good choice for going out at night. There are options for every taste, so i won't name bars because it won't be hard to find one. Porto has good nightlife, so enjoy your time there.

    This is where everybody gathers at night, and we personally met people to go out and do things. Be careful of those Portugues women!

    There are many nice bars in Ribeira Square.
    It is just there the favourite point of the town inhabitants.

    Ribeira nightlife: The Port at Night

    by SonOfLusus Written Dec 26, 2003
    A night by the river in Porto, Portugal

    There is a number of cafes right by the river, where one can admire the views of the city and the bridges at night, eat, drink, and watch the world go by...
