I'd actually hate this to become a touristy venue full of trip advisors but hey, this is an amazing bar. An old building, a maze of 'salons', liveried waiters, floor to ceiling and beyond covered is cases of eclectica, 2 pool tables, a smoking room and a generous glass of very decent red for Eur 4. And no TVs showing... More

This bar (no food is served) was recommended by a friend who lived in Lisbon as a 'unique experience'... well, it is all that plus much more. Never have I seen a bar with so much history and memorabilia of all sorts from across Europe, but mostly Portugal, France, Germany and Russia. There are literally thousands of hats, medals, insignias,... More

It's different place, if you like weird things you will like it, it was a bit crowded with too many things which was a bit annoying..but you can try it. It's a bit expensive but nice music.

Fascinating collections of everything from military helmets to model cars and planes; really quirky interiors and decent pool tables too. Decent selection at the bar of spirits, beers and cocktails. Friendly staff, overall recommend it if you wanna try something a bit different and always from barrio!

This place it's nice to visit just because of it's peculiar collections! Whatever you drink just don't ask for a tea! It's very disappointing! They have a few ones on the list but then there's no correspondence between what we ask and what they bring! Besides that they ruin the tea with boiling water!

The place is absolutely delightful. Full of history and artifacts from different ages with, of course, Chinese culture standing out. As a bar I found it to be a bit over priced, but nothing outrageous. The worse by far is the staff. Completely unfriendly and unhelpful going through the immense menu. They are the reason for which I haven't provided... More

A portuguese friend brought us here. This place is amazing, the interior design is stunning and interesting. The owner must have spent so much time and effort to keep it at this stage with thousand of collections. Not too sure why the bar is name as "Chinese Pavilion" as there is non any element of Chinese decoration. However, it's a... More
