Lisbon is a wino's paradise. From the excellent reds and rosés produced with the country's most beloved grape, Touriga Nacional, to Porto's famous namesake dessert wines to Minho's young and refreshing vinho verde, excellent wine is both ubiquitous and astonishingly affordable. But in recent years, the city has seen a long-awaited surge in places to drink other libations, most notably creative cocktails (at Cinco Lounge and Red Frog) and homegrown craft beer (at Cerveteca Lisboa and Duque Brewpub). The best bars are located in spaces that range from converted 18th-century coach tunnels to panoramic rooftop bars.
