Cinco Lounge

Cinco Lounge is one of Lisbon’s most important cocktail bars—it’s been open for 20 years, and was one of the first spots to show locals there’s more to life than just beer and wine. Head to this dark and moody spot after an afternoon spent exploring Principe Real’s famous garden, 19th century palaces, and shops. If you have some time to kill, order the Finders Keepers: it’s a mix of gin, lemongrass, ginger, mint, and lime that comes served in a tin that’s canned right in front of you. And if you’re just passing through for a quick pit-stop, you can grab one of their tinned margaritas to-go. They also do mocktails and have a selection of small, snacky plates like hotdogs and cheese boards. Whatever you order, expect to be friends with the staff by time you leave.
