Fuga restaurant is a recently opened and located by the Douro riverside, close to the river’s mouth.

An excellent location with a fantastic view! Offering a minimalist, modern decor the restaurant serves innovative Portuguese cuisine and has a top-class wine selection.

Let’s ease ourselves into our two-day agenda with a wonderful evening, by the river at Fuga. The evening’s drinks and dinner are pay-as-you-go, so you can come and go as you please.


How to get to Fuga Porto from Crowne Plaza Hotel

The best way to get to Fuga Porto is by taxi, as the ride only takes 10 minutes (there is a taxi stop right next to the hotel) and taxis are relatively affordable in Porto. If you wish to walk, it will take 30 minutes.

Join us for an evening of networking at Vinum restaurant. Vinum is located at the Graham’s Port’s fully functioning 19th century cellars where generations of famous Port wines have been aged in over 3,200 oak barrels. The main dining room looks directly onto the barrel cellar, with ancient pine beams supported by cast-iron pillars, which date back to 1890. It is an historic and atmospheric setting, which combines the best food the city of Porto has to offer with an immersive wine experience.

Attached to the main dining room is the Atrium – winter garden, which provides one of Portugal and Europe’s most astoundingly beautiful views, both day and night, onto the ancient, UNESCO World Heritage, city of Porto, the Douro River and the unique Dom Luís I Bridge. Few restaurants in the world offer such an atmosphere and setting! Vinum is approximately 6.2km from the event venue (Crown Plaza Porto) and it’s 10min by car, or 34min by train.
