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!

This is a gay bar that accepts clientele from all orientations and body shapes, although the artwork and the colour scheme point to its bear-y inclinations. The staff are quite friendly and their drinks are amazing, with their gin and tonics deserving a particular special...More

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
