Café Maratona, estabelecimento fundado em 1966, mais de quatro décadas de histórias e experiência. Com o novo projecto idealizado em 2008 para o espaço, pretende-se recriar o ambiente vivo e informal do tradicional café, não só como espaço social, mas também enquanto espaço de reflexão e intervenção, mas agora num espaço actual e confortável, com um toque de glamour e sofisticação, virado para um público cada vez mais urbano e cosmopolita. Mais do que um café, pretende-se um espaço gerador de tendências, que responda às necessidades de um público cada vez mais exigente e conhecedor, e que simultaneamente ajude a (re)educar e fidelizar o público mais tradicional.
