Calm amidst chaos
Why locals love it
If you want to experience the "crazy" that is Rua Augusta but are not really interested in partying, this is for you. A three storey house with a (now) clean deco and some great indie music, Santa Augusta is a great start for those looking for some snacking and chatting before bar hopping/partying or just a place to chill.
Why you should visit it
The staff is very nice, the drinks (although there aren't many options) are good and the food is delicious. They don't have a lot of tables available, but this means that it's never going to be awfully crowded. The first levels of the house are the restaurant/bar and the last one is a dancefloor that can be rented for private parties.
If you go for the food, ask for the sausages. The "lamb and walnuts" one is particularly delicious.
