No matter what anybody says, there is no bonafide certificate required for drinking area in Macau despite locals dubbing various bits and pieces. The biggest conglomeration of bars is in an area known as Docos, on Avenida. Here there is a string of fairly low key, but lively bars to be enjoyed. Not much though goes into the design, service or even the name of the establishments, V bar and bar One are just a couple of the more adventurous ones but after 10.p.m. they usually fill out with locals and the place is rampant.
Portuguese Macau has seen a modest resurgence over recent years with the Portuguese colonial building getting spruced up and a spike in Portuguese and Macanese Restaurants.
