Paris´ Gallery Street / Rua Galeria de Paris in Porto is a very historic street.
But when the night comes alive, several people stay on the street changing from bar to bar, drinking and listening to music, go walking and getting to know each bar. Every bar has it´s own theme, music genre, and decoration.
At first sight, our city Porto’s first impression may be considered like an old-school character, but nevertheless the surrounding buildings are filled with life, local food, and bars. These streets serve everything from Porto’s namesake drink, port wine tastings, to speciality beer, local food tours, “petiscos”, and cocktails, and make the perfect spot to chill after a hard day of work, or visiting the town. Gather your friends, drink and eat Porto´s gastronomy, enjoy life!
During the winter season, the better idea is to go inside of the those bars, but in case of having a nice weather, staying on the street is the better option, very lively.
You may find Clérigos Tower very near, and Costa Caffe Porto. Costa Coffee is a British multinational coffeehouse company headquartered in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Whitbread. It is the second largest coffeehouse chain in the world, and the largest in the UK. Costa Coffee was founded in London in 1971 by the Costa family as a wholesale operation supplying roasted coffee to caterers and specialist Italian coffee shops.

The business has 2,121 UK restaurants, over 6,000 Costa Express vending facilities and a further 1,280 outlets overseas (including 395 in China)
We suggest you to arrive around 11:00 pm which is when it is already livelier, and don´t worry, generally bars closes only around 04:00 a.m.
Just visit Paris´ Gallery Street / Rua Galeria de Paris, and have fun with your friends!
