A tiny bar in Principe Real opened at the end of last year. There are tables inside this narrow space for 10 people to sit, and there is a bar along the wall complete with bar stools, as well as the drinks bar at the back of the room. This is one of my new favourite places in Lisbon. The owners are friendly and hands on, taking care to ensure that their customers are happy.
This bar has a great concept – it serves all the typical drinks, as well as homemade Portuguese beer. It also has what it calls a ‘finger food menu’ where people can come and share plates of snacks like pita breads and meat/cheese platters. There are also a couple of soups to choose from and the yummiest warm paninis around.
Another brilliant thing about this bar is that they are open daily with the exception of Tuesdays. On speaking to one of the owners we learned that they have chosen to stay open on Monday because so many places around them close on that day. With this in mind, they deserve to have a captive market! As they are fairly newly opened they are still experimenting with certain dishes and cocktails, but it is definitely well worth the visit.
They open from 10:00 – 15:00 for brunch/lunch and then again at 17:00 to catch people going home from work. Do pop in for a drink or brunch at the weekend.
