Embaixada is a concept store on steroids. I visited this shopping gallery in Lisbon last June and I have to say I was duly impressed. It’s housed in an iconic neo-Arabian villa, has more concept stores than you can shake a stick at, it has one of those vintage elevators that you only thought existed in Wes Anderson movies AND it has a gin garden bar. What. More. Could. You. Possibly. Need?
I hope you’re not getting tired yet from me blogging about Portugal all the time, by the way. In the last few weeks, I’ve written about my stay at the Boca do Lobo Suite at the Infante Sagres Hotel in Porto, my visit to the Calouste Gulbenkian museum and the 21PR Concept Store. I still have tons of pictures from all the other places in Portugal I’ve been to this summer and you can bet I’m going to be sharing them with you whether you want to or not. So there.
