Museu d’Avó

Top choice bar in Aliados & Bolhão

The name translates as 'Grandmother's Museum' and indeed it's a gorgeous rambling attic of a bar, crammed with cabinets, old clocks, azulejos and gramophones, with curios hanging from its rafters. Lanterns and candles illuminate young tripeiros (Porto residents) locked in animated conversation as the house beats spin. If you get the late-night munchies, it also whips up tasty petiscos (€2 to €8).
