New Wine Bar in Lisbon “Grapes & Bites” –


Grapes & Bites, Lisbon
Portugals answer to Pink ChampersImage by your-lisbon-guide via FlickrMost of the bars in Bairro Alto are known for their cheap beer and caipirinhas, but the newest openings seem to all be devoted to wine. The latest one is called “Grapes & Bites,” and despite the English name it only serves Portuguese wines and “petiscos” (snacks).

There are close to 200 choices, many from the bottles on display, others presented on the wine list. They can be served by the glass or bottle.

There are also cocktails, but all made with national wines. To accompany the drinks there are cold cuts, Portuguese cheeses, bread and jams.

It took over the space of a former streetwear boutique, now decorated with big wine barrels standing as tables under the arched interior.

It surprisingly opens every day, even on Sundays, from 2PM to 2AM.

It’s located in the neighborhood’s trendiest shopping street, Rua do Norte, number 81.
