Jà Sinto is more than just another artist. She runs a community-minded project to tease our imagination and explore our deepest «me». If you happened to have passed LX-Factory you must know her from her incredible mural representing a combo of typography and bringing back to life those values that society has lost or has faded out a little. Check out her exhibition this w’kend at the Malapata Art Gallery.

Saturday 15:00h – 20:00h // Malapata Art Gallery, Rua Nova do Almada 9



Hmm… Jazz ! This basement hotspot which you wouldn’t recognize so easily at first sight is a supernice hub to enjoy musicbeats, a few beers and ofcourse now & then some dancingsteps ! Winterweather does invite you shuffle together and absorb this live-event @ BUS Paragem Cultural !

Saturday 21:30h – 23:00h // BUS Paragem, Rua Maria 73



Something completely different and a little more up tempo are the African, Latin/Central American beats & sounds by TropiKaoz. If you won’t get warm on these rythms, nothing will ! Place-to-be: our familiar sweet sounds spot Bartô.

Saturday 22:30h – 01:50h // Bartô, Costa do Castelo


And if you wonder what to do on Sunday? Go to LxFactory @ Alcântara ! The hotspot to explore vintage, second hand, artisinal clothes and wanna-have’s, books (a lot !), good food, fresh smoothies, a rooftopbar, urban art (ofcourse ; ) and just wander… ;  )

A taste of local with: THE BAR

What a better name for a bar than “THE BAR” meaning “THE place to be”. Well today I will introduce you to our partner, Teresa Ruiz who owns this place.

With its laid back environment and chill vibes, people gather in this bar of Principe Real to enjoy a fresh beer or a great cocktail (Margaritas are a MUST try). Opened in April 2017, it is already a must-do in Lisbon. The owner will make sure you are having a good time and you will want to come back all the time!


We asked Teresa a few questions about her space and life in Lisbon:

What is THE BAR about?

I wanted people to be comfortable, to have a casual place, somewhere for people to hang out and drink great drinks in a relaxed cool setting. I also wanted to bring together two things I really love: neon and street art. Portugal has some amazing street artists and I wanted to use the bar to showcase that, I was also lucky enough to come in contact with one of the oldest Lisbon based neon crafts men, to handcraft the neon sign for the bar.

What is your typical customer?
It’s a good mix of locals and tourist, which is great. Everybody can feel comfortable at The Bar.
What are your personal hot spots of Lisbon?
I am a HUGE beach lover. Here are my favorites:
– São Pedro do Estoril
– São Joao do Estoril
– All Caparica Coast (Meco is my favorite)
– Guincho
As an Art fan, here are the places where I like to hangout:
– CCB: Centro Cultural de Belém
– Underdogs Gallery
– Gulbenkian Museum
My go-to places for eating in Lisbon:
– Taberna das Flores (Portuguese restaurant)
– Chutnify (Indian restaurant)
– Ramiro (Fish restaurant)
And my favorite nightlife places:
– The Lounge: Great night bar in Cais de Sodré.
– Incognito: Hidden club in São Bento.
– A Capela: Cosy bar in Bairro Alto with great music.

Wednesday, November 8th:


Thursday, November 9th:


Our tour is a walking tour of about 2h30/3h, during which we show and explain (inter)national artists throughout a patchwork of streets, alleys and squares of Lisbon. We highlight the political, economic, and social issues that give rise to Lisbon’s street art and graffiti scenery. Based on the edu-tainment principle, the tour is meant to be fun as you learn something new. In addition to the art, you’ll also contribute directly to the art-scenery because part of the money earned by the tours goes directly to our yesyoucan.spray collective with which we organize paintsessions and workshops with street artists from and based in Lisbon.

Tamara Alves


Tamara Alves is a Portuguese artist, based in Lisbon who’s inspired by urban life. Making use of supports with multifaceted characteristics – from painting to illustration, from tattoos to Street art. Her works reveal the duality between the delicate and sensitive and the raw and true. By taking out the organs, the heart mainly, and drawing naked bodies she exposes what is underneath the skin. But in some cases the tiger also pops up  🙂  For an overview of her works.
