Galería Zé dos Bois (Zé dos Bois Gallery)
Visit this gallery and join Woody Allen's cast. Your role: a gin tonic loving hipster.
Sensing the artistic pulse of a city takes no doubt a great deal of museums but also swinging by galleries and emerging art centres. This cultural association, headquartered in the Barrio Alto (Rua da Barroca, 59), has become very popular in recent years thanks to new performances and exhibitions of national and international artists. Frequented by a young audience that moves between "gafapastismo" and hipster philosophies, one of its main attractions are its weekend night concerts where underground stars like Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, and Nite Jewel have played. Sip at your gin and tonic in their lovely courtyard (look up and check out the neighbours) while talking art with the local cultural intelligentsia and feeling like a character in a Woody Allen's film.
