About
Once an old industrial textile complex, LX Factory is now home to Lisbon’s trendiest restaurants, bars, and shops. Located beneath the Ponte de 25 Abril Bridge, the revitalized hotspot resembles a village where you can walk down cobbled streets and admire the street art adorning the walls of old warehouses. Here, you can dine in a former industrial canteen, shop at a multi-story bookstore, watch artists at work in their ateliers and studios, catch a live performance or exhibition, and more. On the weekend, stop by the open-air flea market which sells everything from handmade jewelry to vintage clothing. – Tripadvisor

    definitely go there
    You would absolutely love this place; there are lots of bars, cafes, and shops. We went for cocktails; prices average EUR 8-10 for an Aperol spritz, Gin tonic, etc. I would definitely recommend visiting this place. Not very close to the city centre, but taxis like Uber and Bolt are so cheap that you can easily reach this place!

    Such a cute spot. Teens loved it.
    Our Uber driver told us about this spot. It is trendy and has lots of restaurants and bars in an out door setting. There are artist shops and some retail as well. It was very unique. It cost us 10 euros to get there from the center of old town as it is a bit of a drive but it was a very unique set up and the restaurants were more eclectic than in our tourist area ( we ate at a Mexican place that was very good). Definitely worth the drive.

    Great Vibe, Fabulous cafe!
    A disused industrial estate re-purposed for use by small independent stores, bars and cafes. A good place to find that gift that might be a little different to the main tourist tat. We came by after a long day of sight-seeing and stopped off in Brigadeirando. Very good coffee and a cake selection to die for! Lots of people buying "Doces" which looked very rich and chocolatey. Staff were friendly and lively and the cafe had a lovely atmosphere to it. Definitely worth a visit if you're at LX Factory.

    Bohemian cool
    LX Factory, Lisbon: Lisbon reminds me of bohemian, underground sub-cultured Berlin. But nowhere reminds me more of Belin that LX Factory. Artists, graffiti artists, LGBT, creative extraverts and introverts love this hub. Restaurants are aplenty with the zaniest interiors and exteriors. #eatstylishtravelstylish

    Unique experience in Lisbon
    Really enjoyable stroll in these old industrial buildings reshaped by artists. You can for sure find a souvenir from Lisbon in here. The bars along the Main Street offer great and long happy hours.

    Fun night out
    We absolutely love Lx Factory - we come back every time we are in Lisbon. This time we ate at Matchamama and had a delightful meal, especially welcome after a long day at a conference. The food was tasty and wine lovely, all very reasonable. We then had a nice walk around, and went ax throwing at the American bar. I recommend this for anyone visiting Lisbon for a fun night out. There are so many bars and restaurants we have yet to try!

    Reclaimed Industrial Area
    This old warehouse and industrial area has been reclaimed years ago and turned into an eating, drinking, and shopping mecca. You can get here easily on the tram. My favorite part is the excellent and very cool book store. But I also had a good cold drink at a nice spot. Can be very busy and crowded especially on the weekend.

    Trendy market worth a visit and a meal
    Trendy market in an old/repurposed industrial area of Lisbon. Little shops and restaurants here. We went on Sunday and there was a small makers market here as well. Worth the visit and we came here in an Uber after visiting Belem/Descobrimentos/Jeronimos since they are all in the same direction.

    Great stroll with shopping and food - for everyone!
    What a cute alternative place! The stores are all local and very charismatic! Come by with the whole family or just with your significant other or by yourself. The shopping is great, the food is amazing and the ambience the best! If you are into photography, this will also intrigue you! Cons: I found some of the things a bit expensive but that’s maybe just me!

    Hidden Gem
    Stopped by while taking the tram back to town after visiting Belem. It was about six pm on a Saturday night. Even though I'd read about it and seen pictures, I was still pleasantly surprised! You are walking in the middle of a normal suburban street when all of a sudden there is an amazing artistic community of restaurants and street art hidden in a back alley! It felt like entering a speakeasy. I wish there were more stores and art galleries. It was mainly restaurants. We walked around to see the street art, and ate in a fun mexican restaurant. I'm so glad we stopped by!

if you have time and are in the area (This off the beaten path), then you can stop to stroll. It is a place to grab a beer and a meal, and sit aside, if you are not doing that, then you will browse a few stores (a cool bookstore), but overall we found the area overhyped. Not huge and not a ton of interesting stores. We didn't spend a lot of time here (under an hour).

Touted as a really bohemian arty area, it’s nice, but it’s definitely a lot more developed than I’d expected. Nice markets during the day with prints, we went on a Sunday during daytime and wasn’t terribly busy.

I have been here many times. I love the atmosphere and the shops. Don’t miss the library. You can also drink and eat something.

Ok so the place was not quite what I expected. I had imagined a good number of alternative craft shops.
I hope that in the future that the warehouse section becomes full of artistic entrepreneurial vendors and this will enhance what is really at the moment just another eatery come marketplace.
However I still enjoyed the vibe and I imagine that it is a great fun place at night time.

Very fun and quick place to visit! Many great local brands that you could get one of a one pieces from. Make sure you check out all the tiny stores and the ones located inside the building

It’s a bit far out so get public transport, maybe on the way to the monastery. Great row of shops, cafes and restaurants. Worth a a visit

Really enjoyed our trip to LX Factory from Lisbon. We took the tram out from the city centre, which was very busy but doable. When we arrived our first port of call was the rooftop bar, which we loved. Had a couple of great cocktails up there watching the planes go over and enjoying the relaxed atmosphere. We then wandered around the shops for a while, with the bookshop being worth the trip on its own, before taking the packed tram back to Lisbon. It was well worth the visit.

Brilliant staff, 5 star location and a real feel good atmosphere. Climb the stairs to a better place (you can credit it me for that one!) Don't order any beer, order the 'only' beer! 5 stars!

Very good place to visit during the visit of Lisbon. A little far away from the center. We went by Taxi.
It has a lot of local shops and restaurants. Very interesting place to spent. The only think that is not recommended there is no taxi nearby to return to your place or to the center.

Worth a trip to, range of interesting shops with a big variety of stock. Relaxed bars and places to eat. Good view of the bridge and close to Belém.
