Jailhouse - Have been here many times and really love it.
It's just a pub, not a cafe or restaurant as well and it specialises in music. Live music, live music concerts on the tv's or
late disco. Other musicians often get up to have a go and jam with the house band and the atmosphere is lively and fun. Last

Bar Havana - Run by British expats, this place has a long list of the most authentic Cocktails I've tasted in a long time.

The bar itself is decorated in Cuban style, complete with spicy music. The tropical colors complement the Algarvian weather
and laid-back attitude. Instead of paying for every drink, they allow you to start a tab. Apparently, if you have a tabs over

It's usually pretty quiet inside, and outside, they have a table and chairs so you can enjoy the last few minutes of sunshine
and watch the world go by.
