Pensão Amor

Top choice bar in Bairro Alto, Chiado & Cais do Sodré

Set inside a former brothel, this cheeky bar pays homage to its passion-filled past with colourful wall murals, a library of erotically tinged works, and a small stage where you can sometimes catch burlesque shows. A planned Museu Erótico de Lisboa (MEL) had stalled but was supposedly on the way at the time of research.
