Your favourite bar,

Hi

Looking your ideas were to find the best bars in the area, we probably all like places for certain reasons, in general a bit of banter or effort from owner/etc and cold beer is always a good thing.

1. Re: Your favourite bar,

My favorite bar recently closed down as a result of declining custom in these hard times. Another one near the top of the list, well I was the only customer last Wednesday evening.

There won't be any bars left soon unless people actually come out of an evening instead of sitting in their rooms drinking cheap wine from LIDL.

3. Re: Your favourite bar,

cubsur, like other resorts, it will be after Easter before things start to pick up.

Not many resorts now can be classed as true all year destinations.

What's the 'almost empty' bar called? One customer is not going to pay the overheads, unless you are one serious drinker. ;-)

Both Thomson and easyjet seem to have vastly reduced flights and holidays to the Algarve. More than likely other carriers have reduced also. Desperate times.

Lidl wine. lol At least they must be doing well with their cheap plonk.

More and more do seem to have a few drinks in their rooms and on their balconies etc and even self-cater more. Not exclusive to the Algarve of course, I've noticed this in Spain. Only the sports bars seem to have any decent trade when the matches are on.

Who knows, but that's what they seem to be doing.

Try the Cavern Bar, Rua do MFA, Albufeira (old town) end. Recently refurbished and with a new roof, it's one of the few remaining British run bars in that part of town.

I like the Rockline bar, loads of matches on and multiple tv's.

One reason why I'm staying in the CPO. plenty to do around there.

8. Re: Your favourite bar,

I think it was called Floyds? There was a post a few weeks ago and I believe it was a Brit bar.

Has the owner returned back to the UK or simply retired?

No the owner of Floyds is still in Albufeira. Lots of us owners and forummies from albufeira.com used to meet up there for the weekly quizzes. In fact we celebrated Cubsurs 60th Birthday weekend bash there last September together with dinner at The Cottage.

My fav Bar is Rockline, we call it our local, great staff, good prices for drinks & snacks, good coverage of sports & good atmosphere. Many Portuguese frequence the bar besides the Brits.
