Why locals love it
An old factory of artistic hardware was restored, giving rise to a bar and a room for performances, mainly concerts. Great Portuguese and foreign bands have passed here and it’s a full house on those days. However if there isn’t a concert, there will be conferences, plays or exhibitions.
