I have to confess something from the start: I love “O Bom, o Mau e o Vilão”. I know few bars in the center of Lisbon that are this ample, airy and can give such an infinite feeling of space.
The decoration, allusive of super heroes and Westerns- bringing us back to the movie it’s named after- the staff wearing clothes also connected to the theme (but not in a corny way!), the big comfy couches and the beautiful artwork that fills the walls were enough to make me a fan.
The music is always spot on, with the best tunes from the international scene and regular live performances. The mood is pretty ideal: very popular but at the same time calm, a youthful space with an air of maturity. On the weekends, the crowd gets quite big and some of that tranquility is lost. For those who would rather enjoy it on a calmer night, I suggest Tuesday or Wednesday. Some nights there’s even movies- check out their facebook account for more information.
The drinks are great and the variety of gins is especially appealing. In case of late night hunger, there is always the tenderloin steak in Bolo do Caco (a kind of bread from the Madeira Islands) to get you through.
