A bar with pub characteristics, inspired by European trips inserted in the context of folklore made by the first owners.
With three distinct areas on different floors, it is a bar lined with stone, with wooden details, a convivial place with a large space for dancing and live music and with a mezzanine that serves as a games room. Outside, on the different floors, there are two terraces.
It all started on the 8th of December 1976 with Manuel Pinto da Costa who occupied the existing space with the Retiro O Alambique, the remaining space was a wine cellar where all the wine from the family vineyards was stored.
Retiro O Alambique was the place for weekly gatherings, where fado had a captive place, the musical chords came out of Manuel Pinto da Costa’s guitar, the voices of those who liked to sing (from Majorca) and many evenings with the presence of voices from Coimbra.
In a natural way this space also started to be frequented by the youngest, and from week to week the space was being transformed. The wine production was ending and the space where the barrels, the alembic, the press and the wine cellar were, was being substituted by an open area available to dance slows, disco sound and many times folklore.
The nights spent distilling brandy, jeropiga, água-pé and wine and the bucolic of this bustle accompanied by the sounds of guitars gave way to the music of the 80’s with vinyl records, stereo, crystal balls, lights and parties with friends becoming a meeting point on Friday and Saturday nights.
The question arose – "Why not open the space to the public, make a bar, a younger space?" – Thought and Done. From there Alambique Bar was born.
Later, on 24 April 1996 the name of the street was given to the name of the owner of the Alambique Bar, thus becoming – Rua Manuel Pinto da Costa.
