The interior is very nice, the staff are a bit strange, the cocktails are truly awful. Nuclear red cherries that look like they were irradiated in the 70s in every cocktail. We took in the interior, left half of our drinks, and moved on. I'd stick to sparkling water or things that don't require mixing.

Wow, what an amazing and beautiful bar. While looking around you discover with every view new stuff. Professional service and good drinks are served!
A must for every Lisbon visitor who loves bars „out of the box“

I think it is really terrible that in a place where most of the customers are tourists, there is not a menu in English, only in Portuguese. That is so ridiculous, I will never ever bring foreign guests here again

You really can't believe this place if you don't see it for yourself. Ring the doorbell and a bartender will let you in. If you look like a sober and good guest. :-)

It's more like a museum of ornaments and collectors items than a bar. But the cocktails are good! Within five rooms, a massive collection of antique and wonderful items ranging from the 18th to 20th Century. Beautifully curated in glass cabinets and on the walls. It doesn't matter where you sit, it's all GOOD and different each time. I love this place and it's a winning spot to go to for an after-dinner-drink and there's even a smoking room. So much to look at it's a mad haven of historical curiosities and delight. I shall visit again when we next visit Lisbon and every time we do!
