An exceptional speakeasy-style bar — all the fine finishings with just the right amount of tarnish
Roma-Areeiro, Campo Grande
Mon – Sat, 17h – 2h
As is custom with Portuguese speakeasy bars, ring the bell to enter and enter a space frozen in time from the 1930s. Expect quality and well-served cocktails like margaritas, negronis, sidecars, gin fizzes, and the list goes on and on. Expect your drink to be expertly made by bartenders who have spent decades behind the bar perfecting their craft. Each drink comes with a side snack to nibble on, a sort of standard practice for places of this ilk, so the inevitable wait is definitely worth it.
When it comes to food, hold onto your fedora: Choose between foie gras (if that’s your thing), steak sandwiches, and other yummy tidbits served until closing. Side note: if the smell of age-old cigarettes bothers you, you might want to try another more modern spot nearby.
The multi-sectioned magnificent space boasts a pool table, felt-topped tables to get your chess game on, booths for larger groups, and clever red velvet-lined nooks for reading, drinking, and conspiring. This is the ideal place for meetings meant to impress as well as long hours of conversations with good friends over a classic rock soundtrack.
