Here at Portugal Insider we believe in thorough research and take our roles very seriously. So, obviously, when asked to find five fabulous cocktail bars, comprehensive studies had to be undertaken! We gave each bar we visited the “Mojito Challenge” and are very pleased to report that we did manage to show up for work the next day (just) but that we have also found you some stunning places to visit!
Vintage Gin and Cocktail Bar – Vilamoura
Huge Mojito, fabulous taste, great music, friendly, happy clientele, welcoming, just everything you could ask for! The barman knew everything in the world about gin and cocktails and the selection is vast! We’ll definitely be back for another boogie and to sample a few more of those speciality gins.
The Deck Bar and Cocktail Lounge – Vale de Lobo
Such a cool place – vibrant, lively but, also chilled and relaxing in the various zones. Guest DJ’s, modern and snazzy décor with the most beautiful ocean views. I loved it!
The Roof – Vale de Lobo
This is paradise. Totally and utterly shamazeballs. Mojito perfection, a glorious sunset, very cool staff, in fact, I’m a little bit in love with this place. The views over the ocean are just heavenly so whilst you soak it all in with your favourite cocktail, listen to the live music and just breathe it all in because life doesn’t get much better.
Bravo Algarve – Quarteira
Barman certainly knew his stuff and was a top chap! Did the Mojito test and yep – he passed with flying colours! Such a gem, hidden and unassuming but the snacks were fab, loads of happy customers, generous measures – what’s not to like?!
N24 Tapas & Cocktail Lounge – Almancil
I love a Mojito and wow! These certainly hit the spot! Atmosphere is fab, prices are reasonable taking into account the location and maximum effort made to create a welcoming ambience. Tapas to die for! And, such a wide selection catering for vegetarians, vegans, great vibes ensuring you have a wonderful meal despite any allergies etc.
