This small "street bar" is definitely part of cultural heritage of Lisabon. The menu is simple: liquor with fruit or without. Its no shame to drink one or two glasses during the day there, the locals do the same! :)

Its a very old bar with traditional cherry vodka. Atmosphere and location of this bar are perfect, the only reason I give 4 not 5 points is that I didn't enjoy a shot of Ginjinha that much, but maybe because it was too hot :-)

one of my favourites in Lisboa, this small charming place offering ginjinha for 1.4 EUR a shot glass... I always stopped by here and had a glass. A must-try in Lisbon!!:)

Typical cherry liquor served in a small plastic glass for 1,4 euros. I am not a great fan of the drink to be honest but it is still a place to stop.

I will go again to Lisbon next week, and the first walk begin in Ginjinha. I love it. This place is the substance of the city, what I love.

The Ginja tasted ok- not our favourite but OK. The cherries tasted awful- really bitter, my wife said I've never pulled a face like that! Worth a try- clearly an historic place- but I would skip eating the cherries here (they tasted delicious when we tried them in ginja elsewhere).

We were nearby leaving a restaurant, and saw a huge line of people lined up for port. There is some really cool history behind this place that I cannot remember, but the port was out of this world. Nowhere to sit or anything, just a counter with hundreds of bottles of their port..a nice stop for after dinner for some... More

Reminded me of taking cold medicine, but still worth going by to drink a traditional drink. It was and fun and cheap was to feel like a local for a few minutes

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
