Full description
Meet a collective of professional Fado artists who share a passion for the pure and classic Fado and enjoy an intimate concert that combines all the aesthetics and authenticity of this music genre. There are two types of Fado shows: Every day at 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm, you will hear the pure Fado show dedicated to the most authentic tradition of classic Fado. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 9:00 pm, you will hear tributes to historic Fado artists and concerts dedicated to specific thematics such as love, "saudade", dark Fado, white Fado, etc... If you want, you can arrive at the venue early for the opportunity to chat with the musicians. Listen as they tell you about the different types of Fado and learn what makes this genre so special. During the concerts, you'll listen to a traditional music style that is far removed from the commercial Fado that is often found in tourist hotspots. This is the only venue in Porto which is fully dedicated to authentic and artistic Fado. This aproach is defined by improvisatio and it's a musical invitation to contemplate the nature of existence and to express joy and sadness in a celebration of life. During the concerts you will hear around 12 Fados and 2 instrumentals songs of portuguese guitar, an exquisite instrument that you must listen if you're coming to Portugal. Before the concert starts, you will be offered a glass of Port.

    This was such an amazing experience that my family and I will cherish for years to come. If you are a musician or lover of music, this is a must see! The talent and graciousness of the performers and staff exceeded all of my expectations. Thank you Ideal Clubs de Fado!

    My first time to experience Fado, absolutely wonderful musicians and vocalist, and the explanations of the history, background, style etc. were great. It felt authentic and the passion and skill of the artists was incredible. If you don’t want your enjoyment hampered by seeing other people’s smartphones in your field of vision while they are filming the show, get there early and sit in the front row! If you are one of those people who would rather watch a unique and amazing live event through a small screen, instead of watching the actual performers directly, please be considerate to other audience members behind you and next to you whose experience will be very negatively affected by the bright light coming from your smartphone being held up, waved around, etc. If you have an apple watch then switch off your notifications during the show as these are intensely distruptive too! If you just want to sit there scrolling through your news feed, sending messages, go somewhere else!

    Very nice place and excellent hospitality. Very beautiful music. We loved knowing the history of fado that accompanied the music. The artists were very smiling and passionate. An authentic concert. We would have liked there to be a bar to have a "meeting place" atmosphere. It is a place created solely for activity.
