  1. R Robbie
    Bar Cru

    “Love it and the staff.“

  2. J Jam
    Cruise bars are not the same

    “Went for the first time tonight. It’s tiny bit not a bad space. People are more nervous about getting it on because everyone will see—no privacy. So lots of people standing around waiting for their Prince Charming who may never show up End resumís not but happens a s it’s boring.Draco bar is larger and more active in my book.“

  3. J Jam
    Amazing they can stay open

    “I think Cru is the smallest cruise bar I’ve ever seen. No one seems to be doing much. It really is rather boring. I know I’m not everyone’s cup of tea but I think I’m reasonably attractive. All I wanted was to suck dick but everyone was waiting for their perfect Adonis who never arrives. The customers need to get over themselves.“

  4. I Ian
    Small, discrete local bar with back room

    “A small, discre35 local bar where you can go fetish, go naked, whatever your bent. I went with my partner, donned my fetish gear and had hot fun with a local. There are several reviews that comment on lack of patronage. The Lisboans go out late and like the rest of us, tend to go out at weekends.“

  5. r rio
    Boring all the way on a supposedly busy monday !

    “I do not know but it seems that in Lisbon, they advertise bars to be busy and busy all week long ! FALSE. Like this bar on a supposedly busy monday at 10pm...? Wrong. 2 persons and they left after 15 min! Same for DRAKE! Boring ! 5 persons. 40-50 âge frame. Fat...Unappealing. Thursday night 10Pm as barman said ... busy! Yep sure!“

  6. r rio
    Boring, 2 person for 15min on a supposedly busy nite as local say....

    “Another boring bar but advertised busy. Sounds like to advertise "their" bars being busy "all" week at a specific time. Expereinec such say at 2 different bar. Most boring both with 2-5 persons. False advertising keeping bar open for few clients and money...Quite unfortunate expérience in Lisbon. Deceiving!“

  7. c christopher

    “Good mix of guys and pretty clean for a cruise club, small in size but BIG in fun!“

  8. M Mike

    “After few drinks, by mistake, I've puor half a glass of drink on the bar and I was refused to be served anymore pretending i haf already too much alcohol which was not the case.
    The attitude of one of the barman was awfull.“

  9. B Brad
    Busy with lots of action

    “This is a great bar. Went Wednesday evening at 11pm. Had a good time. A lot of action. Locals and tourists. Space was small but great for action and the men were XXL :-)) Great party. Staff were very friendly. My partner went yesterday and also enjoyed. We'll be back !“

  10. G Giu
    Really good place to have fun

    “Every time when I am there I have fun. A lot of action and a good mix of attractive men.
    I honestly recommend it.“

  11. G G
    Really good place

    “I have always have a lot of fun there. Always action!“

  12. A Angelo
    So tiny and dirty

    “Very small place and quite dirty, only very old men and twink princesses and impossible to take care of your intimate hygiene before the action. Was a waste of time...“

  13. W William
    Too small and dirty

    “Unfortunatly the bar is too small and dirty, because the staff is very frendly. Mostly mature clients (+50) and some very old hide in the dark. No place to do a propor intimate cleaning. Worth it? No. Not at all“

  14. M Mikey
    Small and friendly

    “This is a fairly small but good club. Very friendly bar staff. Clientele have a good attitude - right level of attitude. Went on a non-naked night but everyone was in a jockstrap or nothing.

    Would definitely go again.“

  15. M Maximo
    Great place in Lisbon

    “Went there today. Although it was not a naked day, everyone was baring it all out, so it is advised for you stripping naked as you entered, to avoid the trip back to the closed for undressing the underwear, and feeling a little prude like I did.

    Many foreigners, coming mostly from Brazil, USA and all over Europe and even from different parts of Portugal, all in alright shape and good looking.

    Heads up goes to the lovely and cute staff, he was so gentle, presenting everything and paying attention to every detail.

    The place is small, so it seems to take a while to make a start, but again, since it is small, soon everyone is taking part. Would not only recommend but definitely coming back on my next trip to Lisbon. Toot Toot Toot.“

  16. A Al
    Would recommend for something different

    “Went on a Tuesday night Naked Party. Discrete entrance, very friendly staff, very clean. Small and cozy for drinks and other activities.

    Was a bit slow to start with but got reasonably busy. Mix of guys, mostly in average shape, approx. ages 25-50, mostly good interaction between all.“

  17. M Mike
    Super super

    “I had a lot of fun at the Bar Cru, the staff is super friendly. I have always been well taken care of ;-) and the space is clean.
    Portuguese men are fantastic.“

  18. R R
    Best bar in Lisbon

    “Was the best gay bar I visited in Lisbon. Thanks guys - See you again soon. Richard“

  19. J Jorge
    El Mejor

    “Me gusta mucho Bar Cru . Siempre voy allí cuándo estoy en Lisboa. Para tomar una copa y pasarlo bien. Muy acogedor.“

  20. J Jose

    “Muito bom. Homens Lindos. Festas Nudistas.“

  21. L Luke
    Great fun - lots of action

    “Just spent the last 3 nights there, and had a lot of fun. Staff very friendly, sexy and naked!. Thanks Bruno ! The atmosphere is very cruisy but also relaxed and welcoming. Mixed age range, with some very hot guys and plenty of action in the cruising area and even at the bar. I thought the bar was very clean. I recommend it and will definitely go back. 5stars from me :-)“

  22. J John
    Nice but small

    “Lovely staff, but very small and sometimes dirty (in a bad way)“

  23. J James
    Great place!

    “Had a great time here. Met some sexy Portuguese guys. Was the busiest cruise bar I visited in Lisbon. It's not a big space but its a fun atmosphere and there's lots of action. Friendly staff and the place was clean. Also has a good little fetish store with some nice prices. Had a good time there on both nights I visited. Recommend“

  24. M Mathew
    Didn't like it

    “Small place, almost empty twice this week...“

  25. G Garry
    Could be better...

    “Small and dirty... The staff is ok“

  26. M Marco
    Winter fun

    “Interesting place. Small but functional. Staff very good, security great, bar adequate, most importantly the crowd is pretty hot on a weekend night late. Do not go too early as the hotter guys start arriving later. All in all a very satisfying experience. Will be back, probably tonight.“

    • C Chas
      When to arrive?

      “Thanks for the recommendation! So at what time do you recommend I arrive at Cru Bar?“
