Like live music? Check out Clube BLeza, right in Cais de Sodre for a great line-up of interesting musicians from Africa and elsewhere. Great club, nice schedule of events, easy to get to and reasonable price for live music. Most shows simple sell tickets at the door.
Sustainability in architecture reveals itself in many forms, some more subtle or hidden than others. It’s much more complicated an issue than just green lawning your building, but sometimes that’s just what you need to get your message across.
The House in Travessa do Patrocínio by RA\\ does just that. The narrow townhouse is situated in the center of Lisbon, in a neighborhood with little access to green spaces. To compensate for this, the architects draped the house with lush green facades that cover 100 square-meters of wall space.
The facades are integral components to the architecture, and are planted with approximately 4,500 plants sourced from 25 different local varieties, all of which require little maintenance. The result is a vertical garden that functions as an urban “lung” within the pavement-heavy area, helping to rid the residential street of excess noise, carbon, and other pollutants floating about.
Though small and humble in proportion, the architects hope that the house is an “example of sustainability for the city of Lisbon,” a new urban model applicable at all scales of building.
Here are the different types of coffee you can order in a Portuguese bar or restaurant:
Bica: Espresso shotCafé Pingado: A dripped coffee, served in a beaker with a bit of hot water.Café Longo: Similar to a Café Pingado, but taller.Galao:A Café Longo with the ratio of 1:3 milk in it. It can be foamed and/or steamed.Garoto: Garoto also means "kid" and this drink is mostly milk and a favourite for children. It is made like a Galao but the coffee has been run through twice on the espresso machine and is weaker.
