Top 5 / Europe

Check out these great bars for cocktails, nights out and live music.


Baixa Bar, Porto

Open from late afternoon, this place is great for a sundowner and also stays open until the small hours, when things get a bit livelier. Expect rock and pop music on the dance floor and more chilled out areas for those who fancy a chat.


Hard Club, Porto

This place hosts regular party nights that can go on until 4 a.m., with electronic music a common feature. In the daytime it’s a relaxed bar and café hybrid, and you can appreciate the architecture of the converted marketplace during daylight hours.


Noah Surf House, Silveira

Head to Praia da Fisica to relax on a great surfing beach with amazing views. The beach is quieter than some of its more famous neighbors, but that means you’ve got more chance of getting a seat to enjoy the great food and drinks after a day in the water.


Park, Lisbon

This place perches on the roof of a carpark in Bairro Alto, giving great views across the capital. Sit among the plants in the garden or grab a table inside on cooler nights.


Cinco Lounge, Lisbon

A classy cocktail bar in Principe Real, Cinco is an elegant spot that would make a top choice for an after-dinner cocktail on date night.

Dealing with FOMO When Studying Abroad

The Fear of Missing Out greatly affects students who study abroad. For months students look forward to the countries they will call home, whether for a semester or a year, and then after they arrive, the loneliness and separation sets in. It’s difficult to be away from family and friends for a long amount of time and studying abroad is no exception, no matter how badly a student wants to fall in love with their city.
