Rooftop review roundup: This is your sunset spot for starting your Friday night out. There’s a beautiful bar that you walk through that would be a destination in itself if it wasn’t competing with the views outside. And it’s the views which are this rooftop bar’s best feature. The service was a little slow but I think that was more due to being early spring for rooftop bar season.

Rooftop review roundup: One of the kindest rooftops I’ve been to and I hoped the experience would match their ethos: ‘We didn’t want any diners to feel that they were stuck at the back, casting envious glances at others with better views, so we made all the tables equal – they all have a fantastic vista.’ Love this and that they clearly states on their website that the pergola area doesn’t have the river views. They understand rooftop bar addicts like me!! The service was superb, the food Israeli and delicious and the views… well pretty spectacular!

Rooftop review roundup: Open all year round with the main feature being the rooftop pool – that was heated and a rooftop jacuzzi. Perfect for a morning hangover dip or post sightseeing R&R. The rooftop has actually 2 sides – to the left the rooftop pool and sun beds and to the right the sofas and bar. I can imagine in summer this is quite the chill out Saturday afternoon spot. The staff couldn’t be more helpful or friendly and whilst not the best views in Lisbon this is for sure a firm favourite.

Warm/dry weather only? The restaurant is enclosed in a glass room so if it rained could eat inside

Rooftop review roundup: Not many rooftops have such a great statement on their website with their goals so to quote it: ‘Madame Petisca has a very clear and well defined goal: to provide moments of flavour and sharing through the best tapas, wines and genuine Portuguese products ! On her arrival in Lisbon, Madame looked for a place to gather what is the best and most characteristic in the city: an indescribable light all year long, the embrace of the Tagus River, an unforgettable view, the coziness of a typical neighbourhood and of course, at the end of the day, an impeccable sunset!’ 100% met those goals. The rooftop is small and compact full of character and makes for both a coffee spot or destination point.

Rooftop review roundup: As you approach this rooftop bar you do so from ground level which is confusing not to be climbing up stairs if it’s a rooftop but bear in mind you have already climbed the hills! Once you walk in you can see how stunning the views are and you won’t be moving all day!! The word Noobi means let’s goit represents an invitation to hapiness, friendship, to celebrate the joys life and to contemplate both Nature and City. Let’s go? I mean do you need more of a sign! (You also need cash!)

Rooftop review roundup: If you want a hotel with a wow rooftop pool then this is for you. Simply stunning. There’s a bar below the pool tho the view has been blocked out so really you just need to plonk yourself in the water and not move! Note that it’s open officially from May to Sept so check if going out of season.

Rooftop review roundup: This is a must for any music fans. Lisbon is littered with so many rooftop bars and rooftop pools that to stand out you need something special and this hotel has it. Music themed for ‘romance and rhythm’. Everything from the check in desk being a drum kit to the bar having piano fingers. The music mural art on the rooftop and in the bedrooms. The sofas and lounging with a mini waterfall in the pool. This is a rooftop pool and lounge waiting you after a day out that you will be excited to return to!

Warm/dry weather only? Yea for the bar, no for the restaurant

Rooftop review roundup: Known for being a music venue and parties, this rooftop also has a lovely glass walled restaurant on the other side. Helpful as when I went it decided to rain. As it’s a 20 min walk towards LxFactory from the city this is more of a destination venue. Not ideal in the rain as the bar was closed. But I can imagine this being a popular go to in the summer. Oh and when you arrive despite the neon side – yes you do go into what looks like an office building!

Rooftop review: We went to the LX factory for the flea market as was a Sunday and also found cute little shops and then stumbled across a rooftop – bonus! Certainly not the usual swanky rooftop. Very relaxed, sitting on benches, good tunes and happy vibe. Great Sunday afternoon.
