This bar feels like a museum - each room is full of relics - the walls are completely covered with art and trinkets. Totally worth popping in for a round. And if you like a drink with a cigarette, you can smoke your heart out here. Pun intended!

We went to this bar based on trip advisor reviews. It is huge inside and has more than one room. The main room was very busy so we ended sitting in the pool table room. Smoking is still allowed in here so our clothes didn't smell too nice when we left. All of the collectors items here are fun to... More

We stopped in based on good reviews, it had really good cocktails but was super quiet. Maybe on a Sunday night there just isn't much action. Some interesting trinkets on the walls. Cocktails 12 euro.

This is a place you must visit in Lisbon once in a lifetime. You can't get a real and good description of this bar, with its rooms full of shelfs with all kind of collections, the ceilings plenty of different stuff. Antique and new things, on a mix you can't imagine. You must come here and have a drink. You... More

Such a unique bar. We stopped off randomly and were really surprised. Loved it. If you are into quirky, interesting bars you should have a look in here.

This is one of the most unique bars I've ever been to. The entire place is filled from top to bottom (and even some of the ceilings) with various war memorabilia. They have everything from old posters of Lenin to combat helmets to old toy soldiers...and more. The place is split into three different "rooms" or areas, each one decorated... More

It's a fantastic bar with a big cocktail menu but more important is that you can see and touch history - there are hundreds of antiques all around you.
