An established venue on Lisbon's nightlife circuit, Pensao Amor is located in an old boarding house near Cais do Sodre; (the name translates as "Love House"). It's aptly themed around an upscale, 19th-century burlesque club, complete with crimson velvet furnishings and walls lined with gilt-framed mirrors and dozens of antique prints and lithographs depicting ladies in risqué poses. The decadent mood is further set by careful attention to period detail right down to the faux trompe l'oeil ceiling and pub-style piano. The bar serves a great selection of beers, wine, spirits and cocktails and guests are further entertained by regular live music performances in an adjoining salon, burlesque shows and clean and tasteful pole dancing exhibitions. The upper floors are occupied by a number of independent retailers, many specialising in alternative fashion and handcrafted jewellery.

- Best for Bars Because: Wonderfully atmospheric Pensão Amor is a sometimes burlesque bar, poetry club, live music venue and whatever else you want to make it.
