On my first trip to Lisbon, I didn’t get much time to explore the city as I spent all three days covering the Nova Batida Festival. But I did get to see a lot of the LX Factory, a re-purposed industrial area which is now a hipster haven to bars, restaurants, bookstores, and unique music venues. There’s also a ton of art scattered around the area.

It’s a very cool and very fun way to spend a few hours in Lisbon, even if if there isn’t a music festival around so make sure to travel out of the city center and check out this hotspot.
