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.

Reminds me of a similar hipster quarter back in my home Tallinn. And just like back home this place is slightly disappointing - overpriced restaurants with food not up to the price level and overpriced touristy fair from artist-wannabes.

We visited LX Factory on a Sunday with my wife and the family of our brasilian friends who lives in Lisboa. Was a very good experience, because the space has the cosmopolitan atmosphere of other european great cities like London or Berlim.

I expected it to be a larger place more like Miami’s Wynwood Walls but it’s worth the visit regardless. It’s eclectic, creative and joyful on its own merit. The getting there is not well marked from the train station so make sure to take a map with you. It’s a 10-15 mins meandering walk. Once you are there you enter a different world.

Bottom line: worth the visit if you are coming back from Belém

Everyone said to go here and I was underwhelmed. Some good shops, some good restaurants, but mostly a dingy little alley underneath a huge loud bridge

There were a lot of interesting shops and restaurants. But I couldn’t eat or spend much time there because the women’s bathroom was so disgusting I couldn’t use it. Also the description should note that most stores don’t open until 11or 12 although the area opens at 10

What an exciting place. We had lunch here and enjoyed just seeing all different types of people walk by. Great shops. Not historical at all but just a fun, modern and vibrant place.

We walked out from the middle of town, hoping to find some decent craft shops, and were somewhat disappointed. There's only a handful, and many are selling generic items you could buy anywhere. Plenty of good bars and restaurants, this is more a food than shopping destination.

Portuguese friends took us here on a Sunday afternoon. What a lovely surprise! A large factory complex transformed into a bustling new urban district. Chic shops, eateries, bars - all very stylish. An out-of-the-world bookshop in a huge old printer's workshop. A trendy optician - where I splashed out on some fab new specs. It was a delightful experience.

We were there on a Sunday so there was a little market where we bought some prints and t-shirts from artists. The place had a nice atmosphere, although I thought there was gonna be more ateliers

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.
