Expensive but fun kitsch bar

Now that I've been, I probably wouldn't return, as it's a fun place to experience, but rather expensive. I'd recommend ordering cocktails if you go, because they are well-made here and overpriced everywhere anyway! Get a long one and linger over it as long as you can. I felt as if I'd been... read more

Most of the reviews here are spot on. The drinks are expensive but well worth a one-time visit, or to show a out-of-towner around Lisbon. The decor is quite wonderful and the place is clean, but the ceilings are looking tired. I would be a couple of drinks in before stepping into this place, down a couple while walking around... More

We went for a drink with some friends, several years after our first visit, maybe a decade, more a less. The huge amount of collections, all different , without a common thread among them, creates a environment close to the chaotic. Interesting, but at the same time meaningless. Staff cold, seaming to expect the hour of close the door and... More

I was recommended a visit here by a couple of friends and it didn't disappoint. The bar is so quirky with loads of cabinets stuffed full with weird and unusual brick a brac. Drinks are slightly more expensive than other bars but we thought it was worth it just for the sheer novelty of the bar. Opens late so worth... More

This is definitely worth a visit for its eccentricity and a late night cocktail or two. Don't expect happy, friendly waiters or comfortable seating though!

A quite weird but very funny place. Big range of cocktails and waiters in old fashion uniforms. The place is like a museum of corny curiosities...must see, quite unique in Europe :-)

I don't mind spending my hard earned money if you are getting quality products and great service, however this place provides neither. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

The decour is out of this world. Its literally stuff everywhere, and wherever you look you see something new. We came in the night at like 11 p.m. for drinks and was placed in a corner in the deepest end of the pub. We received the drink list, which wasnt really a list, it was a book with like 50... More
