The Old Pharmacy
Civilized wine and petiscos in a charming converted pharmacy
Backlit bottles of copiously curated wine and port from all across the country can be found here behind glassed-in cases that used to hold every apothecary’s delight. The well-informed staff at this pharmacy-turned wine and cocktail bar expertly pour your poison of choice into high-end glasses and are up to the task when asked for pairing recommendations. It’s not hard to find an intimate corner to sample your spirit if you show up early, but the wine barrel tables get packed toward the end of the night as this is a favorite spot for the more discerning drinker in Bairro Alto. When you’re sipping your vintage, ask about its origins if you’re interested, or just sit back and relax in what feels like an undiscovered lap of luxury.
