This is the 2nd year in a row we have visited Carlos,s establishment its a great old fashioned pub with probably the best selection of draught beers i have ever seen in a pub abroad and its in the less noisier top half of the strip .Carlos who runs the place is friendly and takes time to enquire where you come from and makes good conversation with all who enter , we are planning to make this our local the next time we return as its the best pint of Super Bock i had on holiday he also does a few lagers you can buy here but when abroad i like to drink local beers

There is a huge choice of bars along the "Strip" near the Montechoro district of Albufeira- yet the Empty Glass is made by Carlos.
Very polite & knowledgeable in the bar trade, he keeps a good standard of beers, makes knockout sangria & cocktails & is always willing to try to accommodate requests for football to be shown (multi screens) or to practise Portuguese!

Only stopped in as it was raining, Carlos was so nice, it was quiet, he played our song choices, at the end of the night it was raining quite heavily, Carlos offered us a lift home. When would that normally happen ? We'll done! Great bar, fond memories !!

On our recent trip to Albufeira, we found ourselves drawn into this lovely bar, which we continued to visit every night throughout our holiday. The Super Bock tastes great and Carlos, the owner, was so welcoming, this made us want to return night after night. Definitely worth a visit.
