One of the new spaces, the newly opened East Wing of the Terreiro do Paço, is called Lust Lisbon.
Discogoers who want luxury (as the name implies) should make reservations, as there is limited capacity. It works in a place that once belonged to the Ministry of Finance, to prove it, "yet there are cabinets, books and respective spines, besides the wooden blocks on the floor, in an area that has remained classic," explains the director of communication, Paulo José Carmo.
Apart from creating a design dominated by the sin of lust, another of intent "is to combine environmental tourist area with historical space in which it operates and the mystique of the Terreiro do Paço Lisbon."
The drinks are all premium service (Bombay Sapphire gin, Dewar's whiskey and Grey Goose vodka. There are still six “miniprivados,” each with the name of a cardinal sin, and a private top, obviously called Lust). Anna David and Fiona are the public relations house handling the model. The space also has a restaurant.
