The 5 best bars from another time in Lisbon

1) Procópio

Everything at Procópio appears to be from a long lost time, starting with the entrance, in a seemingly rural alleyway off the Amoreiras garden. Once you ring the doorbell and go in, you will feel like a time traveler who just went 100 years back into the past, to an Art-Nouveaustyle bohemian cafe in Paris, frequented by intellectuals.
