It may look like an ordinary newspaper cabin, known as a banca do jornais, but this kooky spot actually serves as a venue for live blues music each Saturday. During the rest of the week, recorded blues music can be heard emanating from the cabin, but it is Saturdays that really draw a crowd, with acclaimed blues acts and emerging artists showcasing their skills here. The events generally begin at 7.30p, but check local listings in advance in case of cancellations.
