Fine decorated place with a very good people and ambience. Nice Dj live music. For 5 € you have a drink and free appetizers on Sundays. They call it "Apericena". Bear bar, but with heterogeneous ambience! Nice place to visit in Lisbon!

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
