|About CASA DO LADO Tabaksvest 1, BE-2000 Antwerp
Now for already 12 years we select, produce and import our Rough Magic from
old Brazil and we distribute our goods all over the world.
Casa do Lado serves clients in the US and in Europe, wholesale and retail and private customers,
varying from huge fridges to tiny soapstone jewelry-boxes.
First there was Diagonal , a small shop situated on the Hopland 63 in
Antwerp, sideways across the street from Restaurant Trópicos, where it all
Trópicos is the one and only Mexican-Brazilian Restaurant and for already 17
years an institution for afficionados in Antwerp.
We use soap-stone pans in Trópicos to serve special stew-dishes....
When we first started our business a lot of people liked those pans so much
that they wanted to buy them and besides they also wanted to buy the nice
little clay figures from Caruaru and those beautiful ventilators from Sao
Paulo and also the nice wooden animals from Minas and before long....
A small shop was opened across the street : Diagonal was born!
And later on we started selling the same furniture we had in our
restaurant - made in Minas - with recycled "noble wood".
Diagonal became too small and then a miracle happened : "The House Nextdoor"
to Trópicos was available and we moved in there : obviously "Casa do Lado"
was the only proper name for this fantastic location.
It is both our showroom and office , the headquarters of our mutual
operation : food & drinks & ambiance, furniture & nice decoration ,
business & pleasure and so on...
Come visit us and see the Magic with your own eyes, welcome in our CASA DO LADO!
