Nice spot. Original decoration Cocktails are good but very very small place. The music is not as good as expected. It's good place to start the evening night.

The Pensao Amor really is a hidden jem in Lisbon. It is a bar which used to be a brothel. There are many rooms inside all decorated to show its history. There is a predominance of red but all of the rooms are different. Music...More

We were taken to Pensao Amor by some friends who lived in Lisbon and it was a great recommendation. This is an ex-brothel but it didn't feel so ex. There's still an operating sex shop and the decor is largely made up of erotica. There...More

The building itself for its wall arr, pictures, stag head and decor is a must. The music was very good, great atmoshpere topped off with strong cocktails.

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
