4 exposition rooms, 2 bookstores, 3 shops, a bar, a restaurant, a terrace…. all this is Fábrica Braço de Prata. And I think I still forgot half of it.
This cultural venue is located on the former location of an armaments factory. Swords to ploughshares one may say!
It’s a very accessible and fun way to sniff some culture. The crowd is young and dynamic. Due to the variety of rooms and bars, there is always something interesting going on. From time to time (in the warm months) there’s a tent outside for concerts.
Listen to a Bossa Nova concerts, see an exposition or just have a drink. Check out the agenda online!
There is also a nice bookstore inside the building.
It’s a bit out of the way (located near the docks, between Santa Apolónia and Expo) and not that known actually. The whole area (Marvila / Beato) is currently undergoing a huge transformation, and is becoming one of Lisbon’s hottest spot. A kind of meatpacking district on the Tejo.
