One for the Road bar Albufeira is no more.

In Albufeira on December 14, 2016 by cubsur51 Tagged: , ,

Many of you will know of the bar ‘One 4 the Road’ in Albufeira. A popular haunt for many ex-pats and visitors, it is now permanently closed. The owner, a very pleasant chap called Alfredo Nobre, contracted cancer and after a year long struggle finally succumbed in October.

With his passing the lease to the premises ceased. The owners have taken it back. Yesterday I saw people working inside, changing everything. All signage has been taken down. What it will be no-one knows, but it will not be as it was. No more quiz nights or pleasant evenings watching the football etc on TV.

Flocks of people have been seen, searching elsewhere for alternatives.

Updated 2nd January – the premises have re-opened under new ownership as something called ‘Beer Time’. Luke said it looks like an ice cream parlour.

  1. Very sad news about the passing of Alfredo. He was a nice guy. I will miss viewing the football here, and also the quiz nights. I hope yourself, Perry & the rest of the regulars find another pub that will provide an equally homely retreat. Will be over in April hopefully and may bump into you in a new venue………. Seasons greetings to you.

  2. So sorry to read about Alfredo we were in there last xmas, great bar and friendly people will be missed

  3. That’s sad news , visited there a few times, hope you find. Anew regular Cubsur

    • The Cavern bar does London Pride and will see more of my custom. I am told that the new incarnation at what was one 4 the road is opening either yesterday or today. I shall be nosy and have a look at what’s what some time this weekend. Happy new year.

  4. Will miss the bar when we go in August
