Let me give it to you straight: the thing about Maus Hábitos is that you can pretty much spend an entire day there. Now, I’m not saying you should do it because there’s plenty to see in Porto. But you could. And you’d probably like it.
It’s a place that encourages and promotes all forms of cultural expression. It’s urban. Contemporary. Hip and happening. It’s entirety is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s hard to define but easy to love. It’s a bar, a restaurant, a concert venue, a club, a gallery…
The restaurant goes by the name of Vícios de Mesa. With an Italian based menu, it serves daily menus during lunch hours and it’s a great choice for a cool, casual dinner. The food is homemade and the ingredients are top-notch. The brunch is… To. Die. For. I mean, really, the brunch is where it’s at. Served on Sundays, from 12:00 to 17:00. Delicious food and lots of variety. It’s beyond good!
But Maus Hábitos is also a place to enjoy great music and party all night. With a carefully curated programme, highlighting both Portuguese talents and international artists, Maus Hábitos is, at the moment, my number one choice for a night out.
Go for a glass of wine in the afternoon, go for the marvelous brunch, go for a concert and a night out. Go whenever, do whatever. But go.
