There’s nothing quite like going up to a Lisbon rooftop to feel like you’re on top of the world… or the city! With the beautiful views that Lisbon has to offer, meeting up with friends on a trendy rooftop will truly be unforgettable. Especially if there’s music, drinks, and the party lasts until way after sunset. And who knows, you might be able to watch a game of football when Cristiano Ronaldo is on the pitch.
Whether you spent the day working, at the beach, or wandering around the whole of Lisbon, relax and join us as we discover 7 Lisbon rooftops.
1 – Rio Maravilha, Lx Factory
Rio Maravilha is a gastropub that pays homage to two rivers: the Tagus in Lisbon, and the Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The bar serves signature cocktails, beers, and wines. The restaurant serves Portuguese and Brazilian cuisine using local ingredients. The industrial décor and views from the rooftop create the perfect setting for a truly incredible experience.
Rio Maravilha is located in the former common room of a textiles factory – and later typography – and today has been transformed into one of the most creative places per square meter: the Lx Factory.
Opening hours: Tuesday – Thursday: 12:30 p.m.–2:00 p.m. | Friday – Saturday: 12:30 p.m.–3:00 p.m. | Sunday: 12:30 p.m. 12:00 a.m.
Address: Rua Rodrigues Faria, nº 103, LX Factory | Entrada 3 | Piso 4, 1300-501 Lisbon
2 – Lost In, Príncipe Real
Like the best things in life, the ‘Lost In’ bar almost goes unnoticed. In the bustling area of Príncipe Real, among the fashion shops, antique shops, restaurants and bars, you have to walk under an archway to reach one of Lisbon’s most laid-back terraces. The décor has been inspired by India through the colours and textures used, the Zen music and the welcoming atmosphere. But of course, the view is even more enchanting and awe-inspiring. If you’re hungry, try the toasted bread, salads, samosas, or the meat, fish and vegetarian dishes that are always on the menu, as this bar creates a fusion of Mediterranean and Eastern cuisine. The bar serves all kinds of drinks from teas and juices, to cocktails, gins and wines.
And don’t miss happy hour (Monday to Friday) and live music (Sundays).
Opening hours: 12:30 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
Address: Rua Dom Pedro V 56 – D, 1250-094, Lisbon, Portugal
3 – Silk, Chiado
As if Chiado wasn’t already the chicest neighborhood in Lisbon, Silk only reaffirms this feeling. The club/restaurant is an exclusive venue, with exceptional service and a fantastic view of the 25 de Abril Bridge, the Tagus river and the most historic part of the city. Silk specializes in sophisticated Japanese cuisine, aimed at a cosmopolitan clientele. This space can also be booked for special occasions.
Address: Rua da Misericórdia, 14, Lisbon
Opening hours: Tuesday – Wednesday: 12:00 p.m.–01:00 a.m. | Thursday 12:00 p.m.–01:30 a.m. | Friday and Saturday 12:00 p.m.–04:00 a.m.
4 – Park, Santa Catarina
Climbing the steps up to the roof of a car park to enjoy the views may not seem like a good idea, but when you go to the Park bar, you’ll know it makes perfect sense. The beautiful view of the city, the river and the Church of Santa Catarina bells, all from the 7th floor of the Calçada do Combro car park, make the visit worthwhile. The trees and wooden furniture create an inviting atmosphere. And the bar serves great drinks and light meals that will always make you want to stay longer. There are sometimes open-air cinema evenings, and frequent DJ sessions held by Parkbeat Records.
Summer opening hours: Monday – Saturday: 1:00 p.m.–2:00 a.m.
Address: Calçada do Combro, 58, Lisbon
5 – Topo, Martim Moniz
There are three Topo venues, all of which are in the center of Lisbon: one in Chiado, another in Martim Moniz, and the last in Cais do Sodré. Here, we’re going to talk about the Topo located in Martim Moniz, which is the oldest. It is located on the 6th floor of the Martim Moniz Shopping Center and makes a feature of its wooden balcony, as well as the views of old Lisbon: Castelo, Mouraria, Graça, and Senhora do Monte. The multicultural cuisine on offer is simply divine, and the cocktails are the talk of the town. One of the walls at the Topo bar is kept especially for displaying artwork from up-and-coming artists.
Address: Martim Moniz Shopping Centre
Opening hours: 12:30 p.m.–01:00 a.m.
