What a better name for a bar than “THE BAR” meaning “THE place to be”. Well today I will introduce you to our partner, Teresa Ruiz who owns this place.

With its laid back environment and chill vibes, people gather in this bar of Principe Real to enjoy a fresh beer or a great cocktail (Margaritas are a MUST try). Opened in April 2017, it is already a must-do in Lisbon. The owner will make sure you are having a good time and you will want to come back all the time!

THE BAR

We asked Teresa a few questions about her space and life in Lisbon:

What is THE BAR about?

I wanted people to be comfortable, to have a casual place, somewhere for people to hang out and drink great drinks in a relaxed cool setting. I also wanted to bring together two things I really love: neon and street art. Portugal has some amazing street artists and I wanted to use the bar to showcase that, I was also lucky enough to come in contact with one of the oldest Lisbon based neon crafts men, to handcraft the neon sign for the bar.
