It could be said that it is the only true Metal and Heavy Rock venue in Lisbon. RCA, short for Real Companhia dos Animais, is the name of the band that grew into this dedicated venue, club and bar in Alvalade, Lisbon. It opened in 2013 with the intention to enter the live music scene at a local and international level, in an old industrial factory that got renovated using some materials found in the area. It is the perfect environment for headbanging shows, but also to have great time with good company at the bar. RCA has excellent acoustics that prevent the loudness of the music to make your hears buzz, and many treats for the bands that come to play, such as good equipment, backstage and private lounge. There are concerts every week-end, occasionally during the week, with original and cover bands, local or foreign.
