Style Jaunt: Shopping in Lisbon’s Principe Real District

Style Jaunt By Style Jaunt

The rebirth of Principe Real

Once known for its antique shops and gay bars, Principe Real has turned into the most sought-after neighbourhood where all the locals want to live. From Bairro Alto, it’s a lovely 10-minute walk along beautiful gardens and colourful mansions. Once there, make sure to spend a few hours enjoying all the great spots on Dom Pedro V Street. Expect to find trendy cafés, concept stores, designer boutiques and newly opened restaurants.

Watch the third episode of Style Jaunt Lisbon to discover Camille and Gracie’s finds in Principe Real.

More info on the places and boutiques in this episode

 Jardim do Principe Real

Camille and Gracie start their day in a fairy-tale setting, right under the giant, hundred-year-old cedar tree that serves as a natural parasol for their morning coffee in Principe Real’s peaceful garden. Situated in the heart of the neighbourhood, it’s also the perfect place to take a break or relax at a table with a pint from one of the stands.

 Embaixada

This shopping gallery is an innovative, award-winning retail concept located in the 19th century Ribeiro da Cunha Palace. Once family-owned, it was later used for the filming of a TV series and is now rented by various local entrepreneurs who promote Portuguese design, craftsmanship and culture. Gastronomy is also a big part of this concept store, with its restaurants and gorgeous patio in the backyard. The same group has opened a sister concept store called Entre tanto, in the Castilho Palace noble house located just a few blocks away. Here, 30 independent retailers from different parts of the world are promoting the trendiest designs. You’ll find everything from the latest fashion trends to home decor and children’s clothes and toys.

Alexandra Moura

This high-end boutique may be small, but it’s filled with original and contemporary pieces by talented local designer Alexandra Moura. It’s definitely worth a visit if you want to stimulate your creativity!

LX Factory

This innovative place isn’t in the same  neighbourhood, but we couldn’t resist and decided to cab it there. Everything is possible in this industrial setting: you’ll find architect offices, design shops, restaurants, cafés, and more. Its description on Facebook reads, “You can think, produce, present ideas and products in a place that belongs to everyone, for everyone,” and aptly so. Our favourite spot to buy souvenirs: Wish Concept Store. And if it’s almost dinnertime, A Praça restaurant is an excellent choice for a nice meal and a night out.
