“Cafe” and “Bar Dancing Cristal” was located on Avenida da Liberdade (nr. 131-137) and opened in November 1941. The author of the project was the architect Cassiano Branco and the enamel paintings on glass, in the interior, were designed by Jorge Barradas. It disappeared in the 1960s.
Designed by architect Luís Cristino da Silva. It had a huge revolving door and a modern billiard room. Inside, the furniture was designed by Cristino da Silva and built by the company Jalco Lda. The walls were designed by Jorge Barradas; the sculptural pieces by Leopoldo de Almeida; the stained glass windows by Ricardo Leone. Completed in the 1950s, the transformation in the 1990s into a Valentim de Carvalho store took away all its splendor.
Solmar Restaurant / Brewery
The Solmar restaurant “with brewery – bar – cafe and seafood market” opened its doors on December 12, 1956, at Portas de Santo Antão street, in the same building as the historic Ateneu Comercial de Lisboa. In the December 13 edition, Diário de Lisboa reported that the new space had a “large hall”, a “large gallery” and in the center, “in addition to an interesting light source, an aquarium”. The furniture was from Casa Olaio “which once again affirms the high quality of its works, not only for the perfection of its manufacture, but also for the artistic elegance and value of the furniture”, and on the wall there was a ceramic panel by the artist Pedro Jorge Pinto. It was closed in 2016.
The “Tique Taque” café, pastry, snack bar, delicatessen and tea room was located on Avenida de Roma (nr. 26B) and opened in 1957. Like “Pam Pam”, “Pique nique” and “Galeto”, was designed by architects Victor Palla and Bento d’Almeida. It closed in the 1990s.
Located on Avenida Almirante Reis (nr. 151A) near Praça do Chile, the “Pam Pam” was inaugurated in February 1956. It was a modern space dedicated to restoration created by architects Victor Palla and Bento d’Almeida, in Lisbon in the 1950s. It did not have a long existence, since in the late 1960s the “Cervejaria Perús” was already in its place.
