#37 - Maxime


Maxime was a luxury cabaret, there came the King of Spain and elements of the great Portuguese families. In recent times was delivered to the underworld of prostitution. Then through a more dubious stage, but reborn from the ashes with a new environment, that a certain charm "decadent-chic" with a dynamic schedule, concerts, stand-up comedy and other events. Manuel Joao Vieira (vocalist of Ena Pá 2000 and Irmãos Catita) took the reins to Maxime and recovered the real joy in this institution of the Praça da Alegria (Plaza of Joy) that is in fashion again and shaking the Lisbon nights.

I enjoyed the cabarets the last time I visited Paris. Other than that I have not been to any others. I may look for a different reason to suggest to my wife that we visit Lisbon (smile).

denton: this was a cabaret years ago...not any more. You can suggesto your wife to come and visit CCB, eat pasteis de belém, enjoy the sun and light, riding a tram, so many things!
Visited your profile and I got confused with so many blogs! lol

Sailor girl: I was there today but...não sobrou nenhum para amostra.

quintarantino: Não sei se se inspira, O ano passado fui até lá para assistir a um espectáculo dele e o maluco nem apareceu!!!

glad when something that used to be part of the culture can be revived.
