Great introduction to Fado music with nice explanation about the history. They also guarantee that you can enjoy the music. One family with a kid (of many families with young children) could not keep their kid quiet and they were asked to leave. While some readers might consider this not correct, we appreciated it as many families would have been victim of one kid. I do want to stress that there were many young children who behaved normal so this is definitely an event to go to with children also.
Highly recommended!

Great for a little taste of Fado. Singer and musicians were wonderful. Seats a little hard, nice little glass of port and cosy venue. Glad we got to experience on a small scale.

Thank you very much for your feedback and we apologize for the discomfort of the chairs. We have taken your opinion into account and strive to acquire new chairs of Portuguese design and manufacture and... comfortable :) We hope you come back to our show to enjoy the new comfortable chairs.

Loved this fado. The lady singer was very informative and has a great singing voice. The two guitar players were awesome. Well worth the euros

We, family with two kids (17 and 15) really enjoyed the performance. Excellent musicians: singer, guitar and Portuguese guitar (12 strings). One hour with fado in a nice and relaxed atmosphere. Group was flexible and guitarist and singer provided explanations in Spanish and English.

Ticket included sparkling wine (cold, good) or Portwine. Kids had a coke.

Strongly recommended!

Highly recommend. Loved it! Book a ticket online. You may be lucky and get a ticket on the day. My slot was fully booked. Intimate traditional venue and so good. I actually became emotional. Lovely. Don't get there too early. Venue opened 10 minutes before the show so time it right. Seats are not allocated. Casual. Loved it. Glass of wine is included in the ticket price. Show is 1 hour long. Staff are friendly and pleasant. Clean. Tables seat 2 so if you are a solo traveller like me, you will most likely share a table with another person. 3 shows a night, May 2024. One at 18:00, one at 19:30 and one at 21:15. I went at 19:30.

I really enjoyed the show. I didn't expect such talented artists to be performing. The Portugese guitar player was phenomenal and the classical guitar guy was really good. The whole show was really entertaining. I would highly recommend it.

Nice quiet venue location. The show was great, however there was a crying infant for part of the show. Shouldn’t allow children.

This intimate venue provides an authentic insight to Portuguese music presented by classic and Portuguese guitarists and 2 exceptional singers. Fado is the genre. No more than 50 in the audience and some shows sell out do booking is recommended. First served to seats, I found the rear comfy seats just as good for acoustics and overall vision. A glass of port on arrival is a nice touch. Lasts an hour with a question and answer session about the Fado tradition with a musician before the show (you’ll need to get there early for that). Only issue was a slightly too warm room for me, but otherwise a well worth visit for music lovers and a perfect insight to Portuguese tradition. I believe up to 3 shows a night, every night.

The club is so cute! It gives the vibe of the small spoken word/poetry spots in NYC. They gave us a tasty class of port wine upon entry. There was a talk about the origin and types of Fado music. The musicians and singers did a great job.
