Breyner 85 is a music club that serves as a café, restaurant, dance club, and a venue where music and arts blend together. In this charming spot, both bands and DJs play, and there is a garden terrace where patrons can sit and talk in the night air. This is also a place in Porto that has karaoke, so get your singing face on if you go! Located close to the heart of Porto’s historic downtown, it’s easy to find and close to the Rosa et al Townhouse boutique hotel.
Maus Hábitos means “bad habits,” but there is nothing wrong (and plenty of things that are right) about visiting this venue. The bar is actually vegetarian and vegan-friendly, and the kitchen serves Mediterranean and European cuisine. It’s known for playing non-commercial, alternative music. In addition to music, Maus Hábitos is also a cultural center with an eclectic array of art on display, adding further to Porto’s design-friendly persona.
In a city with a strong classical side, what’s better than a night of jazz music? Porto’s jazz culture is young but becoming a hit with the locals and is a nice surprise for visitors. A tip to remember is that every Wednesday, Hotfive hosts jazz jam sessions. It is located close to the Ribeira, a short walk away from the Igreja de Santa Clara. At Hotfive, patrons can also listen to the blues, but doing so while enjoying a glass of Portuguese wine, it may just be impossible to feel anything but happy.
