The New York Times Highlights Lisbon’s Principe Real Neighborhood

Lisbon's Principe Real neighborhood in the New York Times

Described as “a haven for the artsy set,” Lisbon’s Principe Real neighborhood has been highlighted in this weekend’s New York Times travel section. This residential area mostly known for its antique shops and gay bars since the 1980s has now become a hotspot for some of Lisbon’s most attractive new stores, many of them related to fashion and interior design. One of those shops is Fabrico Infinito (GoLisbon Blog recommended its backyard café when it opened last year), and another is Emporio Casa Bazar, a shop recommended for its fun Portuguese designs. The article goes on to highlight the area’s nightlife options, including Cinco Lounge which GoLisbon recommends for mixing the best cocktails in town.
