The huge golden eagle and stained glass window mark the unmistakeable façade of the Espaço Franklin, an early-twentieth century construction that has been gutted and converted into a perfect warehouse-style space for anyone with the imagination and confidence to try and fill it. Most recently those people were the crew behind Moo, the city's most successful house and techno party, during which, somehow, the beautifully tiled floors managed to survive and the structure remain intact. Set over three floors with a huge mezzanine overlooking the ground level, it is a bit of a must-see from the outside as well as in.
