The (currently) affordable rents of Intendente have seen a large student and young adult population move into the neighbourhood.
The Praça do Intendente. The square that gave the neighbourhood its name will always have something going on. Throughout the week, the square's bars are full of artists and students having a good time
Casa Independente. It’s an unmarked mansion on one side of the Praça do Intendente that has been converted into one of the coolest café/bars of Lisbon. Plus, they serve some pretty good drinks.
Since Intendente is a recently-renovated area, the lifestyle is fairly driven by the alternative-indie people who are usually the early adopters of the up-and-coming spots around town.
