A hole in the wall club in Cais


Rua Nova do Carvalho, 17
Cais do Sodré

Daily, 21h – 4h

A yellowed Axl Rose poster welcomes you in the door with pop music blasting out into the street from this ageing dance joint. The holes in the bar stool upholstery have come from decades of wear and tear under the tushes of sailors and scallawags looking to boogie. The cocktail prices are the only thing that has changed since the ’80s, but not by much — guys and girls of all ages have been going here to dance dirty on the black-and-white tiles since its inception. Go in to grind to old favorites, have a laugh at the shower in the bathroom, or just ogle the least Nordic bartenders in town as the oldest of them puffs on a stale Ventil cigarette and pours you an halvliter (imperial). Check out the other internationally-themed bars of Cais here.
