Bar: Pensão Amor

19 Rua Alecrim, 1200-052, Lisboa

Pink Street – Cais do Sondré – is the place to be for nightlife in Lisbon. My tip to kickstart a magical night: get warmed up at Pensão Amor. This hip bar used to be a brothel and if you look closely, you’ll notice a slight, lingering burlesque feel to the place. An incredible atmosphere full of art and eccentricity.
