With its lively nightlife and long summer hours, Lisbon can easily rival Paris for the title of the City of Lights. Best known for its year-round moderate climate, seven hills, colorful buildings, and welcoming neighbors, the capital of Portugal is also home to several rooftop bars, which are possibly the best way to experience the city. Acclaimed hotel chain Mama Shelter recently unveiled the latest addition to this list, a trendy rooftop bar.
The New Hotel
Mama Shelter Lisboa is the newest property of the international hotel chain, which is well-known for its playful and eccentric hotels located in hip neighborhoods across the globe. Situated in the heart of the city, this new hotel is a convenient 10-minute walk from some of the most popular attractions of Lisbon like the Botanical Garden, Liberdade Avenue, and Eduardo VII Park. Spread over a total of 8 floors, the hotel offers 130 cozy guest rooms thoughtfully designed by the in-house team Mama Design Studio.
The whimsically colorful interior design of the pet-friendly hotel is an homage to the maritime heritage of Lisbon. The emerald green façade of the hotel is covered with Viuva Lamego tiles. The guest room carpets feature a blue wave motif, reminiscent of the Tagus River flowing through the city. The rooftop bar is the newest add-on to the characteristically unique atmosphere that Mama Shelter has brought to Lisbon.
The Rooftop Bar
According to the general manager of the hotel, Henrique Tiago De Castro, the newly opened rooftop bar is one of the best spots in Lisbon to experience a spectacular panoramic view of the cityscape, especially in the yolky hued sunset light. The sprawling rooftop is located on the 9th floor of the hotel. Guests can enjoy the sassy and flamboyant ambiance while sipping on cocktails, munching on light bites, playing arcade games, and grooving to live DJ music.
