The iconic graphic novel character Corto Maltese pops off the page and onto the floor, walls, and ceiling to welcome you to his hideaway here in Lisboa. If your adventuring has led you in for a drink, don’t miss the old fashioned if bourbon’s your thing, or let the very friendly owner and mix master make you one of his own concoctions. While the name Corto Maltese means “quick hands” in the Andalusian Argot, your beverage might take some time — but the wait is worth it. Sit down at a tiny sewing machine-turned-cafe table and stare in wonder at the curiosities around you (do not miss the bathroom). If you’re on the wagon, I have it on good authority that the virgin mojito is a showstopper.
