The 30 Best Rooftop Bars in Lisbon

Lisbon's rooftop bars are the perfect spots to enjoy drinks with city views, and they're not just found in hotels -- some top shopping centers and even garages. Here are the best ones:

Sky Bar

Avenida da Liberdade, 185
213 198 832
Opens every day

Sky Bar, Lisbon

Found at the top of the Tivoli Avenida Liberdade Hotel, this terrace allows you to gaze out to the river, to the castle and downtown. It offers a good list of cocktails and mocktails, and there is also a choice of snacks.


Calçada do Combro, 58 (Bairro Alto)
215 914 011
Opens every day

Park Bar, Lisbon

The top of a car park at the doorstep of Bairro Alto instantly became an afternoon and night hotspot when it opened in the summer of 2013. Wooden tables and small potted trees facing 25 de Abril Bridge create the feeling of a garden suspended above the city, serving a variety of drinks and burgers into the night, to the sounds selected by a DJ.


Rua da Junqueira, 65 (Belém)
219 023 207
Opens every day

Icon rooftop bar, Lisbon

Located at the top of the Hyatt Regency Lisbon Hotel, a short walk from the city’s most iconic monuments, in Belém, this rooftop overlooks the river and faces 25 de Abril Bridge. It offers space for more than 60 people, but has more of a chill-out rather than a party atmosphere, making it a good spot to relax at the end of the day. It’s especially recommended at sunset, and for the reimagined classic cocktails.

913 009 193

Silk Club, Lisbon

This terrace at the top of a shopping gallery in Chiado opened in 2008 as one of Lisbon's most exclusive bars.

218 842 000

The expansion of the Altis Avenida Hotel in 2019 led to the opening of a new rooftop with a gastrobar concept. From the comfortable armchairs you have a view of the castle and Rossio Square, inviting you to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail, and/or taste the signature dishes of chef João Rodrigues, distinguished with a Michelin star at the Feitoria restaurant in Belém.

Topo Martim Moniz

Praça Martim Moniz/Centro Comercial do Martim Moniz (Mouraria)
215 881 322
Closes on Mondays

Topo, Lisbon

Who would have thought that the top of a small multiethnic shopping center would become one of the city's trendiest spots? But the reason is the beautiful view of the castle and the "petiscos" (tapas) and drinks available. The best time to enjoy the views and a cocktail is at sunset, but both the interior and exterior areas also invite you to stay well into the night.
