No cocktails, no wine list, no gourmet snacks, no hipster music. Guindalense is a humble drinking hole, no tricks, no frills – but with a breathtaking view, from right on top of the river, next to the Luíz I bridge, which is lit up at night. It’s located in the heart of Porto, in the Sé district, and you couldn’t ask for a better place to take in the city with a drink in your hand, far away from downtown’s bustle. They regularly hold dances with Portuguese popular music; if you happen to arrive in the middle of one, don’t be shy, and join in.
