“Great place, love the decor”
Review of Pensao Amor

Pensao Amor
Ranked #6 of 220 Nightlife in Lisbon

The decor here is fantastic and it's a really buzzing place (went there on a Thursday night and it was packed). It was mostly full of foreign students from America and some English too. The chairs are really comfy and it doesn't get uncomfortably busy. The drinks are great (more expensive than many other places but you don't just come here for the drink alone).

Amazing bar in the up and coming Cais do Sodre, Its a great place with very funky tunes and interesting decor ! little more pricey than some of the smaller places in Bairro Alto but worth it for the ambience and experience of drinking away in what was a former brothel ;o) Well worth the walk down to here.

We went here for Christmas drinks with some friends. The venue is so trendy and has a great vibe. I'm led to believe that the place used to be a brothel? The venue has suede furnishings with dim lights. All I would want is better music and then the party is on! Also the toilets could have been ALOT cleaner! oh yeah for the 'Breaking Bad' fans out there...Hank was partying here!!!!

Very funky bar in the old "Red Light" district of Lisbon. This large bar is decorated in the fashion of a turn of the century bordello. There are lots of comfy, worn, velvet chairs, velvet hanging curtains, marble topped tables, various chandeliers and ornate fixtures and mirrors, and lets not forget the photos. The walls are 'tastefully' decorated with vintage nudes.
Additionally there is a backroom where they give pole dancing lessons, or so they claim. They also have an in-house bookstore that sells classic (is there such a thing) erotica, all tastefully presented of course.
The drinks are reasonable, the music is great, and the crowd relaxed. Make sure you see the back stairwell and the wall paintings.

Its different, good music with dj (80s mostly but mixed) and amazing decoration.
It reminds old red district of Lisbon, when sailors went to the borthels. Big space with place to dance and sit but very cozy and crowded!
Prices +5?
Better not take kids
