Hg2 : The Hedonist


Stepping into this lo-fi, minimalist bar can be like walking into a private house party. Although a key player on the Bairro Alto bar scene, Majong sees itself as a cooler cut above the rest. A somewhat self-important clique of unemployed actors and aspiring artists hang out and discuss ‘projects in the pipeline’.

Their misplaced optimism is quite infectious (especially after a couple of caipirinhas) and the urge to buy into their bohemian lifestyle is difficult to resist. After all, you could be rubbing shoulders with a future Portuguese soap star! Table football is a welcome touch of down-to-earth relief. By 11pm the bar is packed out and chaotic, with plenty of pushing and shoving at the bar.
