Quirky fun bar!
Jun 2019
Hidden behind a blank door and up a staircase, you will certainly miss this spot when walking on the Pink street. This property was a brothel back in the day. Now the place is decorated in the fashion of a turn of the century bordello/dark boudoir. Velvet chairs, velvet curtains, chandeliers, mirrors, and lots of vintage nudes. Even the bathrooms are fun! They have a wide selection of drinks and cocktails; they are really good and fancy. It’s not the cheapest place around, expect to pay a little more than in most places in Lisbon but it's all about the atmosphere!
Great night out in an unusual place.

An interesting place to visit
Mar 2020 • Couples
The Pensao Amor is a bar offering Entertainment - the music can be loud. It has very helpful staff.

It is very different to any other bar as it was once a brothel, this makes the environment very interesting. It’s like a museum with its decorations. It has a pole dance pole that customers can use.
A sex shop is in one of the rooms.

Good selection of drinks available at reasonable prices.
Definitely an interesting evening out.

Unexpected discovery
Jan 2020
Definitely worth visiting, it could be the setting for a film. If you're a fan of kistch like me, you'll enjoy this bar. Apart from serving drinks, they have a sexshop with a wide range of products. I got my satisfyer there after a nice conversation with the woman in charge. You should go early if you want to avoid queues.

A bar that used to be a brothel.
Jan 2019
It is located on the Pink Street (although there is an another entrance from the street above the Pink Street). When we visited it was very crowded, but it was as crowded with tourists taking pictures of brothel/bordello decorations rather than treating it as a bar. Because of the constant flow of tourists it really was more like a tourist attraction than a bar. It has some great photo opportunities, but if you’re just looking for a more normal night out, it is probably not the bar for you.

Margaritas and champagne cocktails were
delicious- what a brilliant find. A gorgeous bar, with a hidden array of rooms and bars across the other 3 floors.

Cool and edgy bar
Sep 2019
This bar used to be a brothel, it still has some of the old decoration and some kind of decadent vibe in the different rooms. Nice cocktails and good music, a must visit in Lisbon.

Regarded as one of the jewels in Bairro Alto's bar scene, Pensao Amor is a 3 story bar which has the distinction of formerly playing host to a brothel in past life, and uses various sensual imagery in its decor as a representation of this.

Popular with both tourists and locals alike, the labyrinth like structure has various rooms of all shapes and sizes, including one with a short roof and central couch and one with a stage and pole.

This is a quirky building dripping in character, though things do become somewhat problematic when you try to find the bathroom (I know there's a gents, with unusually high urinals, off the low-ceiling room with a bed/couch in the middle) the actual bar itself isn't that big, but several waitresses providing table service ensure everyone gets their drinks in a timely manner.

Drinks are fairly priced, particularly for the area, which is a popular nightlife spot, and due to the various floors the bar is technically both on the pink street and also the one above so is ideally located for switching up a pub crawl.

Truth be told this review was heading for 5 stars but for 2 factors, one of which I realise isn't actually the bar's fault but did somewhat sour the experience. This refers to some of the clientele being fairly inappropriate to female patrons with their comments. As I say I fully appreciate this isn't the bar's fault, and they can't police the entire place, but still takes the shine off things a bit. The other relates to the music, which is perfectly fine in terms of content, but around the 10pm mark they just crank the volume on inexplicably, to the point you cannot hear the person next to you. To be fair if problem 2 had happened earlier we wouldn't have heard problem 1 , but that's life!

All in though, this is a really cool bar, and one I'll gladly visit again if in Lisbon.
