Description: Located in the heart of Lisbon, in a mandatory visit neighborhood as the Bairro Alto, just a few meters away from Chiado, you find in this Wine House a committed team in a relaxed, family atmosphere, accompanied by live music that animates every night. Between the passion for wines of Antonio Baeta and the passion for cuisine of Silvia Mendes, we get the alchemical mixture of two key ingredients that make the success of this house. On the one hand, more than 1000 national references between white, red, green, sparkling and fortified wine, where the vast majority can be tasted by glass, or even taken home bottled, on the other hand, a continuous search for the best Portuguese delicacies turned into simple dishes, but with great flavor, from cheese and sausages boards with homemade jams, to mussels or scallops gratinated, seared canned tuna, or even cod or octopus in the oven. Upstairs this XVIII century building, fully redone, you can find a room for the night in a cozy environment. Six bedrooms, some with private bathroom, a mixed dormitory, a common living room, a common kitchen where breakfasts are served or where you can cook your own food and an outdoor patio, make of this Hostel a selected place for those who like to enjoy the night of Bairro Alto, and want to stick around. Enjoy every moment of the two spaces in a relaxed way and with quality. Wine House Open every day from 12h00 to 24h00.

“Great place to try some different wines accompanied by nibbles”
Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

We stumbled on this place while walking round the streets of Lisbon and were pleasantly surprised. The waiter was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the many many wines available and we took full advantage of that which meant we enjoyed an excellent selection. We also enjoyed a Cheese and meats sharing platter which was an ideal choice. Although the decor is a a bit dark it is worth escaping the heat of the day to sample some wines.

“Too much wait, and too expensive”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We have wait too much (almost 1h), only to eat tapas and drink wine...
For Bairro Alto, prices are higher than other tapas restaurants...

“Great experience!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Seriously, this place made our evening! - The food and wines recommended by the staff made our evening exceptional. The choices of wines recommended weren't very expensive but super tasty at the same time. The food was also exceptional, recommending the chorizo type sausage which was very juicy and tasty. There was also live, very talented band playing amazing lively music during entire evening we spent there. Hugely recommended, one of the best nights we spent in Portugal during a great trip!
