A word of advice to the fashion lovers… put on a pair of comfortable shoes and go out for a shopping spree in downtown Lisbon.
In the Baixa area, you’ll find the oldest and most traditional shops in Lisbon. Rua Augusta is a pedestrian, cobblestone street with a wide variety of stores, hand in hand with people from all over the world. This is our melting pot.
In Avenida da Liberdade you’ll find the most prestigious international brands and designers from A(rmani) to Z(adig & Voltaire).
If you are looking for a more alternative style, Bairro Alto is the best option. Agência 117 is one of the many options in Rua do Norte and surrounding streets.
In the 18th century Chiado, was where people gathered to see the new trends from Paris, namely at "Paris em Lisboa". You can visit Leitão & Irmão, that used to be Jeweler to the King; Vista Alegre, the reference store for porcelains; Luvaria Ulisses, an ancient glove-maker, Casa de Velas do Loreto, candle-maker and Lisbon’s oldest trademark among others. We also recommend Casa Portuguesa, a store that rediscovers products from our youth.
Before going back to The Lisbonaire, visit Rua D. Pedro V in Principe Real. In between grocery stores, antique stores and renovated buildings there are contemporary shops worth visiting, either because of what they sell, the originality of the décor, or the gardens and terraces hidden at the back. Visit the recently renovated, spectacular, neo-arab palace where Embaixada concept mall is installed or the Entretanto multi-brand space.
