About
Small fun bar in the heart of the Bairro Alto. Serving cold beers, nice wines, great value cocktails and light snacks at very low prices. Vast array of music from 80's to Brit Pop. Sports also shown. Come and see us soon! Eduardo & Jane

Funky little bar in the barrio. Very friendly hosts, good comedy value after dinner. Good value and fun cocktails. We meant to leave and do more of the Barrio, a veritable labyrinth of sin, but we had to much fun in this little gem.
