Clube de Fado information
Clube de Fado hosts the cream of the fado crop in vaulted, dimly lit surrounds. Big-name fadistas performing here include Cuca Rosetta and Maria Ana Bobone, alongside celebrated guitarists such as owner Mario Pacheco. The food is less outstanding, so come for drinks, which is allowed after 10.30pm. Fado starts at 9.30pm.
