Restoration on the walls, roofs, and door frames of the existing building set the stage for converting the structure into a hip bar and restaurant. The stone walls, pathways, and low walls separating the site from the sea mingle well with the natural grain of the wooden extension’s walls. Meant to represent the shape of the island, the addition is visually mesmerizing and looks like a comfortable spot for a drink.

Cella Bar has received positive reviews from visitors and boasts live music, as well as good eats and drinks. The rooftop seating is perfect for feeling the ocean breeze and the interior serves as a lovely spot for chilly nights. Perhaps what makes the interior most stunning is the variety of differently shaped windows – from swooping lines to bright circles, the daylight filters through many portals. The next time you’re near Portugal, be sure to make the trip to Pico Island for a night of star-gazing at Cella Bar.
