Very interesting bar full of weird and wonderful items. Very touristy but you must stop just for one drink. It has to be seen to be believed. Reasonably price.

We stopped here on the way back to the hotel and were here just as it opened. You could spend hours looking at all the individual items in the place. The bar itself almost seems like a grand old hotels bar, only surrounded by quirkiness. We had cocktails which were wonderfully made, but they were comparable to London pricing. I... More

Cocktails, snacks and beer plus the most amazing selection of toys and miscellaneous paraphernalia most will have seen in one place. Unique is one word

I'd actually hate this to become a touristy venue full of trip advisors but hey, this is an amazing bar. An old building, a maze of 'salons', liveried waiters, floor to ceiling and beyond covered is cases of eclectica, 2 pool tables, a smoking room and a generous glass of very decent red for Eur 4. And no TVs showing... More

This bar (no food is served) was recommended by a friend who lived in Lisbon as a 'unique experience'... well, it is all that plus much more. Never have I seen a bar with so much history and memorabilia of all sorts from across Europe, but mostly Portugal, France, Germany and Russia. There are literally thousands of hats, medals, insignias,... More

It's different place, if you like weird things you will like it, it was a bit crowded with too many things which was a bit annoying..but you can try it. It's a bit expensive but nice music.

Fascinating collections of everything from military helmets to model cars and planes; really quirky interiors and decent pool tables too. Decent selection at the bar of spirits, beers and cocktails. Friendly staff, overall recommend it if you wanna try something a bit different and always from barrio!

This place it's nice to visit just because of it's peculiar collections! Whatever you drink just don't ask for a tea! It's very disappointing! They have a few ones on the list but then there's no correspondence between what we ask and what they bring! Besides that they ruin the tea with boiling water!
