    I stumbled upon this place with a friend. It's a store/bar with a cool look and there was live music, owners seemed friendly enough and so did musicians, who played ok, just some guys playing some music. But it's not a very comfortable place to hang out at for very long. When the bill came it became clear to me that the idea is to get folks in to...

There's a Cuban place called La Bodeguita that was...

  • Not so coco not so nuts

    I personally thought it was a disappointment. When I went there, they played techno-like music and it was full of "young" people, around the ages 18-24 I´d say. Unless you don't like a wider range of ages and other music I don´t think its worth going down to Cascais in the middle of the night. It is about 40 minutes by train from Lisbon. ~5 mins...

It is the only fado place in Portugal where...
