  • First Meetup! Porto Design & Coffee

    Moustache Coffee

    Our first Meetup Porto Design & Coffee will be made in Moustache Coffee House... Hope you will enjoy the place and the people :) O Moustache (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Moustache-Coffee-House/289187194449695) é um café moderno e cosmopolita que fará as delícias de qualquer apaixonado por cafés e pela atmosfera reconfortante de uma cafetaria. O edifício com dois pisos debruçado sobre a Praça Carlos Alberto foi recuperado de forma a criar um equilíbrio na dualidade da relação aberta com o exterior e o recolhimento intimista no interior. Pode-se entrar, chegar ao balcão e simplesmente pedir um café para levar, ou optar por ficar e desfrutar relaxadamente do ambiente de uma coffee housecom estilo, chic e confortável ao mesmo tempo, resultado de uma combinação perfeita de café, música, leitura, arquitectura e design. O espaço apresenta um aspecto vanguardista mas simultaneamente acolhedor, da autoria de Paulo Lobo (http://www.paulolobo.com/), misturando elementos arquitectónicos originais como o chão em madeira e as vigas no tecto entre os dois pisos, com paredes cruas em betão, confortáveis poltronas azuis e a iluminação intimista dos candeeiros de pé, pormenores decorativos que geram uma agradável vontade de, simplesmente, estar. Um local digno de qualquer capital europeia, onde se pode acompanhar um espresso, capuccino ou latte com boa música, livros e internet wireless, ou mesmo para uma refeição ligeira. Lá dentro ou na agradável esplanada. https://www.facebook.com/MoustacheCoffeeHouse
