Galerias de París (Paris Galleries)
Porto’s coolest and most refreshing watering hole.
Shall we go for a drink?
If you like to go out dressed nonchalantly in comfy clothing and take a chance on hearing good music without it burning a hole in your pocket in the process, the picturesque and central Rua das Galerias de Paris could be your safest bet to enjoy those harbour nights. The street abounds with some of the coolest bars of the moment, amongst them one whose name bears a reference to the street it’s in, the Galerías de Paris. It’s worth getting to know it both by day and by night, since they serve coffees and breakfasts in the mornings and operate as a restaurant and discotheque according to the hour of day. It’s walls are clad in very high shelving decorated with toys qnd other nick-knacks from early in the last century which add entertainment and a kitsch touch to the room. Another of the most recommended bars in the street is the Bohème.modern, of loose yet sophisticated and cosmopolitan geometric design, it is welcoming at the same time.
