Quinta Shopping Plaza lies at the entrance to the resort and is easily reachable by both foot and car from any one of the villages lying within. Whilst by day there are a range of cafes and boutiques to keep you busy, at night-time there's one particular venue which draws the crowds, the Melting Pot.
This English-themed pub offers the atmosphere of a local boozer rather than a hard-core club or sophisticated cocktail bar, and this is perhaps one of the reasons why it's so popular with residents as well as visitors to the resort.
Serving a large range of international beers and lagers, the Melting Pot also has an excellent wine list, not to mention a wide selection of cocktails and liquors. As well as drinks, the pub also serves a range of snacks if you fancy a nibble during your day or night-time excursions.
If you want a bit of fresh air there's plenty of room on the patio area outside, right in heart of the action at Quinta Shopping. Here you can sit and watch the world go by and making the most of the glorious Algarvean weather.
Open all year round the Melting Pot attracts lots of people even in the off season. Expect it to be busy but don't let this put you off paying it a visit.
