Clube da Esquina
A bar with seating is a rare find in Bairro Alto; a bar open during the day is almost unheard of. But Clube da Esquina is that welcome anomaly.
rnMore civilised than most drinking-holes in the area, it attracts a crowd too old to loiter on street corners and too young to stay at home. Mint-green shutters open out onto the street and window seats are quickly snapped up by early-evening drinkers; dog-eared film posters and flyers detailing up-coming gigs flutter in the breeze.
rnAs the night draws on, the outside area is a throng of activity. Resident DJs spin jazz and soul to the musically discerning crowd. Instantly welcoming, and catering for all types and tastes.
