Overview
More
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.

Great little street full of artisan shops, restaurants and cafes. The bookshop is a great spot to lose yourself for an hour. Looking for a different kind of gift - this is the spot. Not expensive.... Just a 3 minute train ride from city or...More

Nice ambiance in an old factory center, nice restaurants, cafes, street art, a district to discover or go for a concert.

As a newly turned 40 year old this over designed under thought out collection of “re-claimed” factory shells threw me into an existential crisis. Is it just because I'm getting on that I really hated the vibe of this place, or is it because it's...More

Here you can really breath the industrial environment. It's a creative island for fashion, fine arts, music, bars, restaurants .... If you are into handmade products, vintage clothes and new Portugese labels this is not to be missed.

LX factory is a nice industrial area turned to shopping/party area. The place got some nice shops and restaurants, mostly with some alternative products. Also really nice chocolate cake at landeau.

The most positiv thing about the lxfactory are the old buildings that probably used to be a factory. The buildings with out the new interior are beautiful! Unfortunately the selections of stores and „artists“ is quit questionable. There is a strong vibe of top down...More
