Even though I am lisboner in love with my city… I must confess I’m not a huge fan of fado.
So for this post I asked for help to some friends who do love it and know some good places to listen to fado, avoiding those designed to “trap” tourists.
So here are some recommendations of good places to have dinner or drink while listening to the authentic fado.
All these places are in the Alfama area, next to the Sé Cathedral, which is the most famous neighborhood for fado.
Mesa de Frades
Rua dos Remédios 139 A
A Parreirinha de Alfama
Beco Espírito St 1
Clube de Fado
Rua São João da Praça,94
