Really cool bar with excellent live Music (Rock/Pop). The band played 3 hours non-stop until closing time and played virtually any song requested by the crowd. The only downside was that beer was served from plastic cups.

Live Brazilian music made the atmosphere the night we visited. LARGE cups of beer offered, and an all round great, friendly atmosphere, spilling out onto the cobbled streets of Biarro Alto.

The guy who works at the bar was probably drunk and screaming all the time. The cocktails were too weak.

The band has a female singer who did all kinds of songs including Metallica. She did English, Spanish, Portuguese and Brazilian music. Very good atmosphere

We lucked out and found this place (packed!!) on a night with a band playing Brazilian samba. It's too bad there were tables and chairs, as everyone would have been dancing! Great sangria, great music, awesome atmosphere!

We were told this bar was LGBT friendly and a centre for that lifestyle but it just looked like a regular, friendly bar to us, with kids in both times we visited. The acoustic house band played good international music and took requests. The beer...More

We visited Portas Largas on a Tuesday night. At least the bar :-) And the place was packed. Amazing atmosphere, great live music and huge cocktails for a low price. And you'll need it because there will be a lot of dancing!

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
