Diana took us there on her B-Day, we were a group of 8. I was outside on the balcony drinking a beer and smoking a borrowed cigar when someone walking by asked me: -”Hey! How can I get up there?!”. I thought of sending her in the wrong direction and I could have said: -”Sorry… This is a private party”. But she didn’t look like some journalist from a hipster magazine… Instead I just said: -”Turn right and ring the bell!”.
The small door leads to some narrow stairs and the bar is on the 1st floor. You need to be a member, but if you’re lucky, they will let you in. Inside you’ll see an old yellow kitchen sign for a B & B called Tokyo in the middle of someone else’s living room. This is the ultimate underground bar in Lisbon. Hope it remains unknown. Hope all the hipsters go somewhere else. Hope they go to hell too…
Is the music any good? And the drinks? Is it crowded? Yes, Yes… Hell No!!! All the elbow fighting and noisy kids are outside getting wasted while we, the chosen ones, are enjoying and chatting on the balconies with a view of the “Pink Street”.
Rule #1: Don’t talk about it.
Rule #2: Drink and dance like you’re gonna die tomorrow.
Rule #3: Remember the way back to your car or hotel (trust me!).
Rule #4: Don’t tell your friends where it is ‘cos there’s no way someone would find this. I repeat… No way!!!
