Had a brilliant time in Shenanigans, glad that Gareth B is still in Alvor Rory Mc's loss is Shenanigans gain. Alison and Silvio are really hard working and welcoming, and make a brilliant team. Our favourite bar in Alvor.

Lovely bar with helpful, friendly staff. Sky sports available here too. I was recommended to try a spicy Mojito here and I wasn't disappointed. Reasonably priced pleasant atmosphere.
