This is a place you must visit in Lisbon once in a lifetime. You can't get a real and good description of this bar, with its rooms full of shelfs with all kind of collections, the ceilings plenty of different stuff. Antique and new things, on a mix you can't imagine. You must come here and have a drink. You... More

Such a unique bar. We stopped off randomly and were really surprised. Loved it. If you are into quirky, interesting bars you should have a look in here.

This is one of the most unique bars I've ever been to. The entire place is filled from top to bottom (and even some of the ceilings) with various war memorabilia. They have everything from old posters of Lenin to combat helmets to old toy soldiers...and more. The place is split into three different "rooms" or areas, each one decorated... More

It's a fantastic bar with a big cocktail menu but more important is that you can see and touch history - there are hundreds of antiques all around you.

This is not just a place to go for a drink but an event in itself! Walls covered in history, uniforms, candelabra.. billiard tables in the back. You can imagine the foreign spies collecting here at opposite ends of the room, sussing each other out.. Lisbon has some incredible atmosphere and here by the barrel load. Great service and the...
