About
In 1846, a fabric production plant (Companhia de Fiação e Tecidos Lisbonenses) was created in Alcântara, Lisbon. The industrial complex spanned over a total of 23.000 m2 and was one of the most important undertakings the city had so far seen. Fifty years later, the company decides to move and, in its place, a succession of businesses such as industrial typographies took advantage of the unique location and facilities. Forward to the late 20th century and the location was an abandoned, run-down and decrepit inner-city area that desperately needed a makeover. A private investor decides to take on the challenge of creating something new out of almost one hundred years of history and the rest, as they say, is indeed history. Today, the space is home to more than 200 businesses ranging from cafés, restaurants, design houses, show-rooms, shops, offices, commercial spaces to other projects that link directly to the space’s unique cultural and artistic standing.

Disappointing
Oct 2021 • Couples
We expected an interesting art space and were really disappointed to find out that the LX Factory is more like a trendy food boulevard. There are some ateliers but the art is far from being groundbreaking. Not worth the time.

Quite call, probably not worth the long journey
Oct 2021 • Couples
A strange little market in the middle of nowhere. Lots of bars / expensive shops to try out. Think a lot of organised tours stop here so think there must be some kind of deal. Wouldn’t go there souvenir shopping unless you have deep pockets!

Nice first visit
Sep 2021
We enjoyed our first visit to LX Factory. We came by car and parked it in the very rough and ready car park next door to the entrance which cost 2 euros (cash only). There was plenty of parking when we arrived at early lunch time on a Saturday but by the early afternoon it was pretty full. We had a quick look round and enjoyed a great lunch at 1300 Taberna and visited a lovely brigadeiro shop and the Ler Devagar book shop. Only downside is that the loos are small and although a lady was doing a good job cleaning them up people did seem to make a lot of mess. A fun place for a different walk in Lisbon.

Nice for a walk around and a drink, but overrated!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Visited via an electric tram and found the entrance reasonably well but was quite shocked when we arrived to find that it was incredibly quiet, lots of the art that had been there previously had gone and that it was definitely not what we were expecting this time. We did visit for lunch so this might have explained part of the atmosphere but we walked the whole place upstairs and downstairs and the car park area in less than an hour, a lot smaller than expected and more a place to visit in the evening. Landau chocolate cake a must recommend though!

Nice to see but…
Sep 2021 • Couples
It is an old factory area where some small shops and a lot of Bars and Restaurants found their home -there is not much about art.
We were there during the day and finished fast, but also do not had any drinks or food. I think in the evening you have a good time there but do not expect to much about art.

Funky place - hippy

It’s a funky marketplace under the big bridge. Lots of restaurants / bars and a step up from fast food. It’s fun for an hour or so.

Amazing creative atmosphere
Jul 2021
I found this place by chance and I was literally enchanted! There was an artistic and super creative atmosphere with small shops of handmade, vintage and special items. Inside you can also visit art galleries, studios and art workshops where you can freely access. There are numerous restaurants, bars and clubs that offer various types of cuisine and drinks, perfect if you want to spend pleasant and free time.
