The premises of this wine bar used to house a pharmacy, and the former dispensary has been converted into one of the city's most eye-catching and alluring nightspots. The original glass cabinets have been left in place and now display bottles of wine from across Portugal In fact, there are over 200 different wines to choose from including celebrated labels such as Passadouro Reserva from the Douro, in northern Portugal. Wine can be ordered by the bottle or glass and the menu also lists a range of petiscos, snacks that includes hams, cheeses and other snacks. The new proprietors made sure the bar exuded the elegant look of the pharmacy in its heyday so refurbished the interior to maintain the vintage decor. But don't worry when you see the lights change colour. You're not drunk! Instead, the cabinets have been fitted with a fade in-fade out lighting system of green, amber and red.
