We know that every day on a business trip counts for two days’ work at home, which is why you will probably feel like winding down with a relaxing drink at the end of the day to help you recharge your batteries for whatever tomorrow may bring.
As you don’t have the time to enjoy a gentle wander around Lisbon, we have selected five rooftop bars that we are convinced will quickly help you to start feeling human again as you admire the best views over the city and at least get a panoramic idea of its charms.
This cocktail bar near Avenida metro station plays great music and sweeping views over the river, the Castelo de São Jorge and the city centre.
Opposite the 25 de Abril bridge in the Bairro Alto neighbourhood is this bar in a rooftop garden on the sixth floor of a car park. A DJ provides the soundtrack to the spectacular views.
It’s hard to know what this place’s most striking selling point is: the views of Castelo de São Jorge and the Elevador de Santa Justa (Santa Justa lift), their delicious petiscos (tapas) or the sunset…
We think your best bet is to enjoy them all at once!
Bar terraço Santa Luzia
Here you’ll feel as though you are taking a stroll over the rooftops of Lisbon. It is nestled away in a corner of a park beside the Portas do Sol lookout point but never gets as busy!
Discover the delights of the Alfama district from way up above!
Sink into the eye-catching red chairs or lounge beside the matching pool!
After a hard day’s work and a little time to get your breath back in one of these bars with such great views, head to the Gat Rossio hotel, where our 5-star beds are ready to offer you the perfect night’s sleep so that you can be on your best form again tomorrow.
