24 Hours In… Lisbon.
10:30pm, A Bar …Or A Museum? – First opened in 1986, the Pavilhão Chinês bar features five rooms all decorated in a very different way. Some might call the place a kitschy accumulation of knick-knacks, but in fact, this space was born out of a collector’s desire to share his collection of small relics. Here you’ll find thousands of interesting objects exhibited in curio cabinets – from figurines and dolls to miniature airplanes, hats, helmets, medals, paintings, teapots, maps, flags, Bordalo Pinheiro drawings… the list goes on and on! It’s a real paradise for any collector at heart. [Photo: Bex Walton/Flickr]
