Name of bar/club

Ginkgo, Praia da Rocha


Űber-cool, with a minimalist Japanese feel. Ultra modern and one of the most stylish, contemporary buildings in the Algarve. It was designed by Tiago Miguel A.M.S. Rosada


This place has a real ‘wow’ factor, and it’s hard not to feel relaxed in this bar. You can see how much thought has gone into every detail of the space. I would always try to dress up to compliment the building. It’s a great place to socialise with friends.

What & where to drink?

There is only one bar and you’ll find the owner Bruno behind it, so always ask him what he would recommend, as they make fantastic cocktails from their large selection of spirits.

Why do you like it?

The Zen like atmosphere, the smooth clean lines and the friendly service.

What to eat?

They serve a selection of toasties and sandwiches, but food is not really the focus.

Insider knowledge

During the summer months, arrive early to get your seat and stay until late, partying the night away to the funky jazz and Latin music.


About 150 people – with seating inside and out.


Rocha dos Castelos, Praia da Rocha, 8500 Portimão – in a quieter area of Praia da Rocha than many of the clubs and bars, parallel to the main street of bars. Ample parking outside the bar.


Known mostly for their cocktails (they do sell wine but the list is small, as well as Sagres and Heineken beer).
