Fabulous Fado concert at night
I could experience something extraordinary in this place. The performance by two singers (they switched one by one) and two guitarists was amazing. They offered us a glass of port wine. I think it must be one of the best options if you want to feel Portugal or Porto culture.

A great way at to experience traditional Fado music!
A small concert room with a stage, two guitarists and two singers who alternate performing. We received a lovely glass of Port to drink during the show. We went after dinner in town which is what we were looking for. Many Fado shows in Lisbon are dinner clubs. The show is the exact right amount of time - about an hour. Highly recommend.
