A Casa do Fado

fado porto - a casa do fado

“A Casa do Fado” ( it’s not a Fado House) proposes a concert in an old Ribeira basement with a little explanation about Fado in the middle of the concert.

Tickets cost 15€ (includes a glass of port wine) and admission is free for children under 12. The one-hour show is presented every day at 7:00 PM.

What to Expect

The place, an old granite basement with a low ceiling, where the tables and chairs are adapted barrels, is one of the most picturesque places to listen to Fado in Porto in the late afternoon.

Before the concert starts, a glass of port is served. During the performance you will hear ten to twelve fados and two instrumental pieces. In the middle there will be a pause where one of the musicians will explain the history of Fado.

Where is it?

A Casa do Fado is located at Rua do Infante D. Henrique 85, on Porto’s riverfront.

Is this Fado experience for me?

The most distinctive aspect of this show is the venue. So if you want to hear Fado without food in a different space, this experience is for you.

But if you want to hear a more authentic approach to Fado, consider the Ideal Clube de Fado show. If you want a more didactic experience, go to Fado na Baixa.
