NOT SAFE!They squeezed at least twice the maximum capacity limit in this small club, like sardines, while charging 10€ per person for entry! Very dangerous in case of emergency. BAD!This also made it very unpleasant, with pushing and shoving and no space to dance. A fight broke out immediately when we got there because of people pushing each other.The lack of respect for safety of people is alarming and probably illegal. Very sad to see this in a Queer establishment that is supposed to be about love and safety 😔

It’ll hit capacity if you don’t go early. Doors are locked and there’s no indication of what to do.Don’t bother. Nightclub opens at 1.15.

I was walking into the place, clearly places to sit, the short guy told me they were full, didn’t ask anything else, when he heard me speaking English he turned us around. I’ve been to so many places I would not recommend this to Americans. 😬

I didn't have any food so I can't speak to that however I can speak to their service and the performance. I was there on a Tuesday night. Got there at 930pm and they staff said the show won't start till 11pm. So I left to eat and came back. Didn't start on time which no problem. The show was just phenomenal. I had the best time there. The drag queens were funny and energetic even tho it's Tuesday night! My last night in lisbon was spectacular due to the place. The songs they choose were mostly in English so I felt like I'm at home. I had forgotten I was in Portugal. They were very entertaining from beginning to end. They were very interactive with thier customers as well. Over all one of the best drag show in Portugal 🇵🇹bravo!!!! Thank you for putting a great show on a weird week night! Xoxo

Finalmente. Lisbon’s best known drag venue. Recommended! – A Lisbon institution! Small, gets super-crowded. Two separate shows to choose from, seven nights a week:o ‘Café Concert’ early evening (19:00-0:30 [show starts at 22:30])o ‘Finalmente Dance Club’ (01:00-06:00 [show starts at 03:00]).Finalmente, Rua da Palmeira, 38. Principe Real.

Fun bar to go dance at. Smelled like puke the moment you walked in. Quick bar service. Nice drag show.

Loved this place. The hostess of the show is very funny and speaks in so many languages. I had to beat a fear to be seen in public as she made me try heels and all, but it was im good fun.There's food before midnight, which is good because you don't want to drink on an empty stomach and be that annoying customer.All the performers were great. Highly recommend! Beijos de Montreal, Canada.

A friend of mine who was visiting Lisbon took me to this bar on Wednesday night, and it was a show night. Unfortunately, I didn't finish the show because I had a flight back to NYC early the next day. I stayed fir 30 minutes and I really enjoyed the atmosphere, songs, and the dancing. Nice show.

A contrasted evening.On the plus side: the drag show and the Queens were great and very talented, bravo to them. The service was also very good.However, the behavior of one of the customers ruined the evening for quite a few people by touching and kissing other customers without their consent throughout the drag show. This is not a tolerable behavior in a place that is supposed to be a safe place for everyone, and I do not understand why this person was not excluded from the club even though the staff noticed his repeated assaults. It's very unfortunate, we would have had a great evening otherwise.

Great drag show. One of the best I've seen and I've seen them all over the world. It starts late so make a reservation and go 10 minutes before it starts....

This bar was playing Padam Padam by Kylie as soon as we walked in which made us feel completely safe and held. When you walk in everyone looks at you because it is small and bright and it makes you feel hot. The drag show at 3am was a gorgeously diverse range of gay Portuguese pop songs, glitter, crowns and gowns. The bathrooms are a whole universe in themselves and that bouncer is a babe. If you have a vagina maybe wipe the toilet seat before you sit down if you don’t want to get pregnant.

My favourite part of being queer is my community and Finalmente made us feel right at home halfway across the world. Go in with an open mind and a smile and I’m sure you will receive it tenfold in return. Can’t wait to come back!

Access to the toilets is an issue but other than that, this is an outstanding relaxed and welcoming nightclub with funny drag acts and great DJs where you can dance until sunrise.

Horrible! I felt I was in a bad camping party, with 2005s summers hit, the alcool they serve is disgusting, the club is so full you can’t move or dance…If you are into daddy’s + campy you might like the customers.

This place is fantastic. Best drag show I have been to in a while. The stage is small but the bar is hopping. It's a fun show, very well put on and we had to stay for both and glad that we did because the second act is even better. If you are looking for a fun night out in Lisbon you should definitely make your way down for an after dinner show.

Attended the Drag show on a Friday night and had a great time. The show is well put together, performers are very good, the bar staff is friendly and the drag who hosts the show is very professional yet hilarious. We were a group of 4 (English and Portuguese speakers).

Rude and racist. Yes we were five minutes late for the table at 10.35pm. But without a fuss refused to serve us to drink or allowed to stay in but kept letting more and more people in way after us to stand. They were being served without a table, not us!Was blatant racism and ethnocentrism. One of the worst experiences I've ever had to face on a holiday. Furious and total BS.If you read other reviews see many others have had negative experiences so the response below is pretty pathetic.Have booking online if this tiny venue is so 'popular'!!Many people came and were served after us. And were still entering the premises when we left!We were not rude but the manager was appalling. What a nasty man perhaps letting the venue down.Look at the sarcastic and snide response! What a snide individual! 😱

They put on a solid show! I’m from Los Angeles and so I am used to some great drag queens. These girls did not disappoint! We got there at 1030 for our reservation. As we sat down we thought “this room is empty why did we need a reservation?” Show starts at 11, slowly tables started to fill. As with every drag show we have ever been to the girls started a little late, around 11:15. At this time the club was packed and ready for a show! (Glad we made those reservations). The queens interacted with the crowd before intermission (in Portuguese so we had no clue what they were saying, but we are in Portugal so of course they spoke their language) and the crowd was having a great time. Having seen many of RuPaul’s girls perform I would say these queens were up there! Thanks for the great show ladies!!!

Had the BEST time at this local drag institution. They start late and only speak Portuguese - but the performance is for everyone and the drinks are cheap. Get there early since they have only around 15-20 tables. They have multiple shows per night so if you can’t get in at first; check them out later!

Waaaaaaayyy too busy. Tiny space, tiny dance floor. Sadly not worth the price of entry. Suggest keeping a reasonable capacity so that people can enjoy the evening a little more.

Very bad experience, we were not aware that we needed to book before, which is understandable, but the guy on the front door was very rude with us, the first thing he said after we said "Hi, good night" was "YOU WON'T GO INSIDE" disrespectful, I will never try to go back again.

Visited here with a large group for my hen do and was looking forward to a fab night. Our night was ruined by one of my friends experiencing racist comments from the acts on the stage. He was singled out because of the colour of his skin and made to come on stage and fetishised in front of the whole audience. We all left feeling disgusted. Avoid avoid avoid

Was not allowed in here as I spoke English and was not Portuguese. Extremely rude doorman who let in my husband, who also spoke English but often gets mistaken for Spanish/Portuguese.

We waited outside with other Americans and we’re discriminated against. Let me include that we walked over a mile in the pouring rain because we heard this club was the best. It was 11pm and they declined us entry as we waitedIn the rain. We offered to pay a cover and yet they declined. This club is not friendly whatsoever and I refuse to recommend this club. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CLUB/Bar, go to Sidebar. They’re much more attentive and accommodating.

Excellent atmosphere , excellent music ! The only down side it's the toilets and the doorman that lacks in customer service skills . I went there many times , he doesn't greet customers, I never saw him smiling ! It's a shame as he's the first point of contact !! Also, toilets, are disgraceful
