You'll go there and you'll drink a thick dark chocolate while you'll admire the very nice museum-like decoration. Hot chocolate costs around 6 euros but the atmosphere of the place is worth the money. Maybe take a book with you, relax and enjoy!

We were advised to go there by a local friend and we definitely enjoyed our visit. Once you step inside Pavilhão Chinês, it's as if you traveled back in time. The collection of antiques is impressive and so is the huge drinks menu.

Nice cafe and bar, wide range of drinks, but what it stands out is the decoration! Spend a few minutes wandering around to catch every detail!

This is a very interesting bar with lots of different collectibles on show. For that reason it’s worth a visit. The overall price is expensive, especially for cocktails and I found the staff very blunt in nature and not attentive. Therefore I would not visit...More

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,
