Hi Kate,
If what you are looking for is the trendy area, I woul say Bairro Alto, Chiado and Cais do Sodré:

Umm, well i guess it has a leftish/anarchic political character, a lot of young people hang out there, know for its riots and symbolic political activism in the past, cool bars? I guess this is a very bad description but I am just trying to capture the general feeling of the area :)
Hey Kate, I've lived in both Berlin and Lisbon. Bairro Alto/Chiado are quite the opposite to Kreuzberg. If I were to choose an area it would definitely be Mouraria. (Martim Moniz, Intentente, Anjos). No doubt about it!
