A sunset in Lisbon does not mean it's the end of the day. A typical evening might start in the cafés of Chiado, serving as meeting points before heading to a restaurant for dinner in a relaxing atmosphere in the Bairro Alto quarter which is the epicentre of the city's bar scene. Venues range from the hip ("Bedroom"), to the quirky ("Pavilhão Chinês"), to the laid-back ("Clube da Esquina"). Most close between 2 and 4am, when night owls may wish to move down by the river to the docks of Alcântara and the district of Santos, home to several fashionable bars and clubs. If clubbing isn't your scene, classical music is well represented at a variety of venues such as the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Culturgest. The city's several beautiful old theatres, such as the Dona Maria II National Theatre, present contemporary works and classical plays.
