“Buzzing place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

The caipirinhas are really good. This bar has been solely responsible for some of my most memorable hangovers and colourful bowel movements. Great bar.

Amazing caipirinhas, great staff, this bar stands out from the rest. Definitely worth spending a few hours having a totally different experience than anywhere else in Alvor.

“Always a great place to be!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Bolan Bar has it all! Brilliant welcoming staff who can always bring a smile to your face, both their perfect drinks and great senses of humour create a fantastic atmosphere where spending most of the night is second to none and the music is always spot on too!! Fabulous place to be at any point in the evening, locals and visitors of all nationalities are guaranteed such a fun time in this little jewel in Alvor and the staff and owner are just the best in town who look after their customers so well. Certainly not a night or experience to miss, it's magic every time!!

“Caipirinha heaven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

Visited this place first time about 18 years ago and it's lost none of its charm and inimitable quality. Yep, it's pretty must 'just a bar', but jam-packed with visual taste, musical style and, well it's just a fantastic bar.
Barman (from Hull) efficient and personable, the boss just exudes character and the drinks a re spot-on, whether that be cocktails, spirits or wine. Oh, but don't ask for coffee as this place is definitely the exception to the rule on that one. I was daft enough to try the caipirinhas in several other places and my advice is don't bother.
