Casa Independente

Bar in Lisbon

There's always something going on at this creative space overlooking a sleepy plaza just north of Largo Martim Moniz. You can wander through rooms looking at strange and curious artworks, hit the plant-filled back patio (joining the smokers), or nurse drinks in quiet corners of this rambling old space.

There are bands (Cabo Verdian funaná accordion-based music) and DJs (funk, electronica) on weekends – you can't miss the photogenic tiger that dominates the stage.
