Within the broad landscape of Portuguese electronic music, Gusta-vo name is completely unavoidable.

Over the past ten years he has also been one of the major players behind the Neopop Festival. He is one half of the powerful DJ duo Freshkitos, whose regular presence at some of Europe’s biggest clubs, festivals and events have made them a household name. His solo DJ sets span a wide variety of cutting edge techno and house music and his deep knowledge of dance floor dynamics allow him to enrapture any crowd from intimate, sweaty clubs to huge festival audiences, taking them on a journey to the farthest reaches of the unknown.

Ahead of Brunch Electronik Lisboa Gusta-vo takes us through a tour of Lisbon. Go and check them out too.

Cafe / Restaurant / Food Tip: Zé da Mouraria

A typical and great restaurant that shows the true and authentic food from Lisbon. The cuttlefish and the coriander rice makes my day. It´s not easy to go there as it´s normally really busy but worth the wait and persistence.

Bar / Drinking Spot (not a club): Rio Maravilha at Lx Factory 

You have such a diversity there and you can be outside, inside and the views are still breathtaking. Also the food, the cocktails are something special. If you want a place where you get a bit of everything, art, food, drinks, views, vibe and energy this is the perfect spot.

Museum / Sites / Culture Activity

MAAT, Underdog gallery, Chapitô, CCB and Lx Factory gathers some interesting spots.

Favourite spot to soak up the views / go for a wonder: Monsanto

Monsanto is a great place where you can watch the splendour of Lisbon, the city of light!

Wild Card – Something a bit different that people might not have heard of before: Maçã Verde

A place I like to go often is Maçã Verde, a restaurant close to Santa Apolonia Train Station where I love to eat. The food is so nice and true, also the price is super reasonable that makes it one of my choices in Lisbon every time I come here.
