R. da Atalaia 3

Mon – Fri, 18h – 2h; Sat – Sun, 18h – 3h
This loungy bar mixes traditional Portuguese influences (cabbage ceramics spring to life and materialize as kitzchy lampshades overhead) with a hint of rugged industrialism. It’s a welcome getaway in the heart of the madness of Bairro Alto as it’s focused on quality over quantity unlike the pint and shot pushers in the rest of the neighborhood. Go for a white Russian, a Negroni, or just a simple glass of red, you’ll leave feeling a touch smarter than the stumbling, undiscerning guzzlers in the Bairro.
