When you'll be drunk, don't panic: here's the... More

I was erasmus in Oporto for 5 months, so I know what I am talking about (I think I was there at least once a week). In this pub you can get all the shots that you need. The top three: golden russian (ie ice cream shot), vacuum cleaner and sniff. You can't go there and not take these ones.... More

In heart of old Porto I found place full of joy and life. Great people who could laugh with you and enjoy your company instead of selling you drinks. Will always back there! For absinthe and chalk to draw wild rabbits on the table :)
