Perfect little bar for anyone that enjoys cheap shots and great music. Nothing like any other bar in Praia da Rocha, Diagonal has a nice theme and even while not being Praia da Rocha's most crowded house, it's definitely one of the best.

We visited this bar in the afternoon during sunshine and having a seat on the terrace while looking at the beach and the ocean Totally relaxed and drinking a good glass of wine served by friendly staff. This is just a very happy surrounding.

This is the bar for you. The only heavy metal rock bar in Praia da Rocha & possibly the best rock bar in southern Portugal. Feel good vibe & loud music, just bring friends, enjoy alternative music new & old. If you don't like rock...More

Hello, I am very sorry for the late reply. I am the owners son and live in France at the moment. I set up this TripAdvisor account for the bar a while ago but did not know about this section. I just did a phone call and... More
