A friend recommended we visit Ulysses on a recent visit to Lisbon. We were very lucky to get a booking!

It is TINY and very popular, so you really should book ahead.

We opted for ‘bespoke’ cocktails - they were truly sensational, like nothing I’ve ever had before. A really special experience!

You don't want to miss this micro gem of a Speakeasy. Seriously. I was lucky enough to be there when the owner was in town. Manuel is a superstar. He, and his other bartenders in his absence, will quiz you, if you like, and make the perfect cocktail just for you. I've had two versions of a Black Russian that were sublime. Only ten stools and a vibe that I'm pretty sure indicates a secret passage to another dimension and or time. Slide on in if you're lucky enough to get a spot and enjoy.

My friend and I stumbled across this small but stunning bar. The Portuguese/Canadian owner really knows his stuff. If you want a straightforward mojito then don’t come here. The owner uses only premium spirits and delights in creating bespoke cocktails to your personal taste. I was sceptical but probably the most original and stunning cocktails I have ever had. Also had a range of local beers and Portuguese gins. Slightly more expensive but you won’t get anything like this anywhere else.

Spent a fabulous evening drinking quality cocktails and chatting with lovely people. This bar is small, really small, so if you are looking for a quiet private conversation this may not be the place for you!
The owner is friendly and passionate about his products, also a mine of information about the area.
I almost don't want to write this review as I don't want it to get too popular, there had to be a seat for me on my next trip to Lisbon!

seen this bar mentioned online and found it one night as easy to walk past....tiny bar with 2 rows of 5 chairs so 10 is the max.....great selection of cocktails that are bespoke to your palate so be prepared for 20 question on your drinking habits before you get your drink.....wifey had a great concoction which she loved but I was underwhelmed by my old fashioned which looked and tasted to me like scotch on the rocks after being informed they had 100 bourbons .....over 400 cocktails in a 700 year old building....hhhhmmmm
great vibe tho made by the customers as it is so intimate that you cannot but engage with the other clients....
certainly quirky but been there done that...

This place is incredible. A tiny place that seats maybe 7 people, run by a super knowledgeable Canadian with an incredible knowledge for mixed cocktails (right down to how to make the best ice cubes for your drinks). The bar is a challenge to find but well worth the effort.

The Old Fashioned and Negroni we all had were amongst the very best anywhere! The feature Old Fashioned barrel aged, which I never had was the very best anywhere. Incredible, intimate place to meet people, enjoy your drinks, it's small and very intimate, which may not be for everyone. But for those who appreciate a unique place with lots to offer. Strongly recommend to drop in!

After finding this on google maps we decided to pop in after dinner. After almost walking past this tiny door we were sceptical to enter but delighted we decided to go in.
There was around 8 seats in the bar and 3 were already occupied. The owner is a Portuguese/Canadian man with a real knowledge of his ingredients. He asked us a few questions and made us a cocktail to suit our tastes and both were incredible and exactly the flavours we’d asked for. After the cocktail I tried one of the few craft beers on offer and had the nicest barrel aged stout I’ve ever had and my girlfriend had a phenomenal glass of white wine.
The owner was interesting to talk to and there was not a phone in sight and we all engaged together. The bar isn’t cheap but it felt like we were paying for an experience and the products the owner uses are of a real high quality. We both agree it’s one of the best bar experiences we’ve ever had and can’t to come back in return to Lisbon!!
