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.

Popped in here on our last night, and wish we had discovered sooner - friendly to all, great cocktails and reasonably priced - what more could you ask for?!

We called in for a quick beer on the way back to the hotel but, ended up stumbling home far to late because as mentioned in other reviews the barmaid is probably the best in alvor. Excellent service and a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by.
