It’s not new…it’s classic! The establishment of Casa do Livro has been at Rua Galerias Paris, 85, in Porto, for decades. First, it was a bookstore (“Casa do Livro” in English is “Book House”). In 2007, it was transformed into a café-bar keeping its bookish name and décor. Today, Casa do Livro is a comfortable, cool and classy place for relaxing with a glass a wine, sipping a tea, caressing a cocktail and enjoying musical entertainment.
The ambiance at Casa do Livro is classic and casual. In the front room, a long bar runs the length of one side with banquette seating lining the wall on the other side. A baby grand piano, however, is the focal point. Pulsating music spun by a DJ lures patrons to the backroom. Large upholstered chairs are ideal for cozy conversations, and small tables and chairs sit ready for groups. Books on shelves covering the walls add a scholarly, classic air to the atmosphere.
Live music is programmed on a regular basis. A pianist on the grand piano plays classic and contemporary favorites. Soul and jazz keep the vibe cool and swanky.
