Old-School Elegance at A Brasileira
Open since 1905, “A Brasileira” was once the choice of Fernando Pessoa, the great Portuguese poet. You can sit beside him just outside, next to his bronze statue. Back in the day, this place was a hangout for writers, artists, and journalists.
The location, in Garret Street, is great—just a step from the popular meet-up spot Largo de Camões.
You can get there by subway (Baixa/Chiado Station), tram (Nº28), or on foot (go down Misericórdia Street, up Alecrim Street, or up Garret Street)—or come from one of the many streets of Bairro Alto).
