Embaixada – Principe Real’s hip new spot

Embaixada is as interesting as it is hard to classify. This new project translates to English as “Embassy” and opened in early September of 2013 in the most logical of places: Principe Real, the neighborhood that in the past decade could be better associated with the hippest crowds and with creative new businesses.

What is it, then? A beautiful old palace from the XIX century, originally called Palacete Ribeiro da Cunha, kept its interiors intact, and now two of its four stories can boast to hosting a restaurant – Le Jardin – as well as a series of small stores. Among others we can find the Moleskine notebook store, über cool Portuguese fashion designers Storytailors, and Principe Real’s favorite “Amélie au Théatre”. It recently opened an outdoor seating area with the new “AtalhoReal” restaurant, so that everyone can enjoy the glorious sunny days!

Embaixada also has a space on the first floor reserved for art and culture: one can expect to see temporary art exhibitions from Portuguese artists, as well as cultural events.

I would recommend browsing around the stores and appreciating the palace itself.
It is definitely a place where art, business and leisure meet, in a special and unlikely setting.
