The arched ceiling of this inviting wine bar is decorated with over 3000 empty wine bottles, a creative nod to the fact that this nightspot is operated by one of Portugal's leading producers – José Maria da Fonseca. Customers have an enviable choice of over 50 different JMF wines from around Portugal, sold by the bottle or glass. An accompanying menu of carefully selected food, delicacies like Azeitão cheeses, Algarve bread, Iberico hams and even oysters harvested from the Sado estuary, lend By the Wine a homely and traditional flavour. The interior design mirrors JMF's own cellars, where a rear salon is embellished with floor-to-ceiling wine racks, a collection of French oak barrels and an original wine press.
- Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: Owned and operated by one of Portugal's most illustrious wine-producing families, By the Wine is equally attractive to connoisseurs and those seeking memorable Lisbon nightlife.
- Best for Wine Bars Because: By the Wine offers customers an insight into the history of one of Portugal's most celebrated producers, and 50 or so different wines to discover.
