The emblematic Real Sports Bar reopens with news — and very close to the old house
T-shirts autographed by the players of the national team and two main national soccer clubs decorated in the new space.
If you still don’t know where to watch the next big game of the championship, we have a solution. Located at number 234 of Rua de São Sebastião da Pedreira and, since February 11, it is a mandatory stopover point for those passionate about sport — it doesn’t matter what type — and good food. Famos do Real Sports Bar, which reopens two years later in a new location and with improvements, in order to provide those who visit unforgettable moments between friends and rivais. For the first time, I was open from March 2013 to March 2020.
Até ha little tempo, or bar ficava no Hotel Real Parque. With the deactivation of the hotel unit for the future rehabilitation of the building, it was necessary to decide what the future would have. “As the space was iconic and had many followers, it made sense to keep it functioning and it was also intended to change its location to the Hotel Real Palácio”, explains Ângelo Sena, from the communication department of Real Hotels Group, responsible for the management do establishment. The fact that two two hotels will meet at a very short distance also weighs on the decision to preserve, he adds.
Além da localização, o novo espaço distinguishes itself by presenting a more vintage decoration. “I used an image and sports material that recalls how it was or what I used to do in the old days”.
T-shirts autographed by players of the selection and two main national soccer clubs, as well as some soccer balls, beach soccer and rugby signed by cracks of various modalities confer a special charm to the renewed shelter. An eleição place for those who live to try to do the wrong thing that will allow you to prove that we will be there to witness the birth of the new Messi or to wait for the final sprint that leaves several open-mouthed opponents behind and gives victory to the cyclist who has never bet.
In the novelties, André highlights, above all, the size of the space, with more places, ecrãs and columns of som “so that you can have a unique sports experience”. You get used to three television sets becoming four, “substantially older”. Now, customers also do not need to enter the hotel reception, since the bar has direct access to the outside, or that makes everything more practical.
Unaltered (and ainda bem), we remain as modalities that I can accompany by it. Soccer, rugby, tennis, basketball, athletics, golf and Formula 1 are the usual possibilities, but André anticipates that customers can request other sports.
If he doubts about the quality of the improved Real Sports Bar, it is important to know that he got the approval of Madjer and João Matos. He is a former beach soccer player, who won the world championship three times and was chosen as the best player five times, as well as the current captain of the national futsal team, bicampeã europeia, they are official ambassadors.
