When we opened our doors in 2009, nobody in meat-eating Amarante believed in the idea of vegetarian food.
We try our best so what you have on your plate from Bar do Girassol is the best you can get.
For the ones that can’t visit us daily, we give them the option to be Bio Fair and Local at home! We sell several Fair Trade products (chocolate, coffee, tea or biscuits for example) in our Bar and fresh organic veggies from our garden and local farmers at our Bio & Fair Market.
Located in the middle of Amarante’s historical center, with privileged views above Tâmega river, S. Gonçalo’s monastery and old bridge, we offer quality accommodation with affordable prices. Looking for a place to spend a relaxed weekend or even organize a residential training with your business team? We might be right what you’re looking for as we provide comfortable accommodation, multifunctional work rooms and modern equipment for meetings!

In Amarante, local bands no longer need to play in the garage! We have a studio with the perfect conditions for the bands rehearsals. Each band can do it for free, we just ask them a concert per year! Besides this it is also possible to record albums as we have a professional sound engineer working there named Gustavo Carvalho. He usually brings known national and internacional bands to record their work in a place they say to be “inspiring for artists”.
The latest element of CJ is its relaxed, minimalist and functional Coworking space called Espaço A. Located on the second floor of the building, the Coworking space is available for free for all those freelancer souls out here in Amarante. Whether you are into social entrepreneurship, graphic design, or are used to work from home or from a café – then this is your place. Quiet, cozy, with free wi-fi and a view to the magnolia tree in CJ´s patio… and in case you would need a refreshment – coffee or cake – don´t forget that our Bar do Girassol is just downstairs.
If you want to join this innovative space and be part of its network, you are more than welcome to join the Facebook Group dedicated to Espaço A.
