Why locals love it

Opened since 1993, it’s a mandatory stop of Lisbon fado’s circuit, for consecrated artists as potential stars or simply for anyone that feels the need to sing a fado accompanied by the sound of Portuguese guitar.

Why you should visit it

Recovered from an old tavern, framed by dozens of paintings, posters, clippings and tables and benches that are not enough for everyone that wants to hear a fado. If you want to hear some Fado Vadio (Fado that is sang by non professionals), show up on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Special tip

Do not be afraid if you see a chorizo on fire, but once burned, taste it.

HIghly recommended! We spent a magic night there listening people singing fados. Even though I couldn't understand a word the atmosphere of that place was amazing :)

It's an old Icon in Lisbon regarding Fado Vadio (kind of improvising Fado, several singers responding to each others)
