Today we present you one the most eclectic and fancy bars of Lisbon: the Pavilhão Chinês. This name originates from the fact that back in time, the same rooms hosted a haberdashery that was particularly famous in the city. The bar opened in the February of 1986 and it’s almost approaching its 30th anniversary.
Localized between the boroughs of Bairro Alto and Principe Real (see address here), this bar is today well known among lisboetas (inhabitants of Lisbon), and it inevitably attracts many tourists, as it is signaled in almost every guide.
Palácio Chinês has five big rooms, which are full of thousands of different objects as toy soldiers, miniature airplanes and trains, ceramic pieces, vintage posters, swords, and objects dating back to World War I.
Why is it so popular? The answer can be answered by the photo gallery:
As you can see, the whole bar can be considered a museum or an antique shop.
If you want to immerse yourself into an incredible environment this is definitely the place for you.
