Dating back to the 1930s, this was a once thriving hardware store where locals congregated to purchase household wares and other DIY products. These days it's a cosy and equally busy wine bar, but careful restoration has preserved much of its yesteryear charm. Indeed, some Graça residents remember visiting the original shop and are delighted to find an interior little changed in design and character. Proprietor Miguel Azevedo is always happy to impart the history behind this alluring venue, a place to unwind over fine wines and organic, artisan fare. Graça do Vinho stocks over 40 different Portuguese wines from regions around the country, including the Azores. There's a menu featuring all sorts of pates, dips, salads, sandwiches, and meat and cheeseboards. Actually, the cheese selection is exemplary, and Miguel can provide wine pairings with cheeses as a special treat. And if you're out celebrating, why not try their oysters, plucked from the ocean near Setúbal? Customers can buy bottles of wine to go, and the bar can also arrange wine tastings by appointment.
