We went to the session and found it all about the tourist and not the organic Music. The place was all tourists and we could see why the locals were not there

Clube de Fado was the only disappointment during our trip to Lisbon. We were forced to order dinner even though we were there for dessert and wine. The food was not top quality, heavily Overpriced. The staff was arrogant and we were ignored many times....More

Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and,
of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.
