Worth a trip to see all the memorabilia.
Had a great coffee drink and found the place enchangting.
Got there late (after midnight) and the staff must have been a bit tired but that did not stop us from enjoying the atmosphere.
Must go in Lisbon for a drink and a museum experience.
The door is closed….you have to ring the bell to the right of the door and wait to be let in. Very cute and not snobbish.

Had a mojito and a whiskey sour, both were excellent, from a very large beverage menu. The bar interior is unique, several rooms differently decorated with various curiosities. Funny to find a room stuffed with all the toys you played with as a kid. One room was a smoker's room. They had a pool table, too. Comfortable furniture. Relaxed music setting at a volume allowing conversation. Old-school waiters. Nooks and crannies. Grown-ups will feel at home. So good.

It is a very interesting place. A bar with a big selection of different teas (you will take some time to choose one between all they offer) and cocktails, with a great ambience. Once in there, it looks like you entered a time machine and you simultaneously visit different ages. It is perfect for a couple's date, a small group of friends or even to go alone and get cosy with a nice book.
The staff is not bad but they could be a bit more smiley. Also, I haven't tasted the cocktails, but since the teas are not quite the tradditional ones, they are a bit expensive.

Is a awesome treasure in a trendy neighborhood, Príncipe Real. This bar has different amazing collections of faience, porcelain, hats of war, antique dolls and so on. It is a must.
The bar has different rooms or spaces, in one of them exists a snooker table.
About the drinks they have a variety of teas, coffes, porto wines, coktails, a never end.
It opens at 21:00 and soon is full, its is better to book or go soon.
