RAW Culture Art & Lofts Bairro Alto
Falling asleep among pieces of art and waking up with an incredible view – of Bairro Alto, of course! – is not a dream, and, since 2017 is accessible to the most ordinary of mortals. All you need to do is choose RAW Culture Art & Lofts for your stay in Portugal's capital.
Set in an old building where one of Lisbon's first printing houses used to be, RAW is based on three essential pillars that are clearly visible: architecture, design, and art. The original building has been preserved as far as possible and today we find it harmonized with the industrial decoration – the result is a "wow factor" that is hard to match. We do not remain unaffected by the concrete, iron, glass, and art curation. RAW's raw DNA, pardon the redundancy, is not only visible, it is truly seductive.
All pieces, from furniture to artwork, can be purchased by customers. And believe me, it is hard to resist the urge to take everything home and recreate this atmosphere in our home.
More than a set of three lofts, RAW Culture is a supplier of happy moments: be it through a memorable stay, a visit to the ever-changing gallery, or with a cocktail at the bar (after all, we are in Bairro Alto!).
Each of the lofts has an industrial decoration that envelops us in a unique experience. In fact, and since this project is based on art, the feeling of falling asleep and waking up surrounded by so much beauty is inexplicable. And that really makes all the difference, but it is not the only factor that tells us that the day is going to be good... To continue to brighten our mood, we are comforted with a super-complete breakfast à la carte. The concept is simple, but it doesn't sin for that, between macrobiotic and vegetarian suggestions, we have the guarantee that the ingredients are as healthy as possible. For our part, we can guarantee that it was the perfect way to start the day: the delicious breakfast and the view over Bairro Alto.
But since RAW Culture excels at creating happy memories, we have one more suggestion... The bar is open until midnight – both for guests and other visitors – and promotes an amazingly engaging experience, so don't miss the opportunity to visit - especially on Friday and Saturday to take part in the many events taking place here.
Multifaceted, contemporary, engaging, innovative... All these seem to say so little about a space that is so much. RAW adapts to many realities: for short stays, for longer stays, to drink from art and culture, to gather in a different environment...
Cool Tip: On the ground floor of RAW Culture you will find an amazing gallery. Whether you are staying or not, you can visit it between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. and be amazed by the art on display. The exhibitions are temporary and change roughly every 2 months – don't miss out!
