A little history of the place ...
The last years of First World War and those that followed saw a new way of living in the city, especially at night. Rua das Portas de Santo Antão was the chosen scenario. In June 1918 it is inaugurated in Lisbon, one of the first in a series of nightclubs, the Palace Club.
This opened at the place where it was thought to make a cinema and where there was a building in ruins. In 1915, a new project was presented to replace it, for luxury commercial establishments. Giving up on the idea of a commercial building, that year was done in the interior, the first floor being totally occupied by a ballroom and a night club game: The Palace.
The Hall was then profusely decorated with stuccoes forming wreaths. In the vestibule, winged cupids topped the side doors of red marble, accompanied by eight bas-reliefs carved by Simões de Almeida Sobrinho, professor of the School of Fine Arts.
Tango, gambling and cocaine gave the characteristic tone to this new space designed for privileged lisbon, where the use of gala dress was obligatory.
The Club closed in 1920, and the property passed to the "Lisbon Commercial Association" whose foundation dates back to June 12, 1834. The building was renamed Palácio do Comércio and the Association today, the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is there since 1921.
