The Fado in Chiado show was held in a small theatre at the top of an unusual building. There were two singers (one female one male) and two guitarists. They encouraged us to join in and both had wonderful voices. We also saw Fado while having a meal in another restaurant the following evening which may be a more relaxed way to see Fado but you don't hear as many songs.

The entrance was a bit misleading at the beginning as there were a few theathers in the block. Sow was great to see for visitors who doesn't want to have a meal to go along, or those like us have limited of time and want to make the most out of it.

We did not want to be out late to see a Fado show at a restaurant. This show was a very good sample of Fado, the performers were very good and even had some audience participation, which was fun. Metro was nearby so we had no trouble getting back to our hotel.
