Review:Sky Bar Lisbon - "Vibrant and beautiful rooftop, serving great cocktails and fantastic views"

Published: August 28, 2019

The very first Lisbon rooftop bar recently got a make-over and now looks and feels more stunning than ever.

The classic and fantastic Tivoli Avenida Liberdade Lisboa recently opened a new rooftop restaurant called SEEN (which can also be found in Bangkok and Sao Paulo). In connection, the 9th floor Sky Bar also got a make-over to blend in better with the new restaurant. And boy is it stylish.

We spent a lovely summer evening up here, enjoying panoramic views over Lisbon, fantastic crafted cocktails and an amazing and vibrant atmosphere. Check out the full review below.

Setting and Atmosphere

A visit at Sky Bar Lisboa starts with a walk down the almost iconic stairs, leading to the open-air terrace and fantastic panorama views over the Lisbon skyline. All the way down to Tagus River.

The spacious and beautiful wooden-decked terrace comes with a mix of nice lounge furniture and standing tables at the edge. And a really cool, lush and large rooftop bar.

The terrace is also multi-level, with upper lounge spots, an extra deck for the SEEN restaurant and a deck where the live DJ overlooks the crowds.

We had a table on the terrace from 6.30pm, and it was a great table, overlooking all the action on the rooftop. Starting of with a chill lounge atmosphere at arrival, with people around but still some spots to sit available.

About one hour later, closer to sunset, and the terrace was pretty packed with people. Not cramped though, just a nice and vibrant vibe. And more people having to stand in the bar. Which is not bad at all, it's a great spot to catch the views and the skilled crew working.

We stayed til around 11pm, vibes still high and some people joining the DJ for dancing. The DJ was actually playing nice tunes all night long, wich really helps the atmosphere.

So beautiful setting, great atmosphere and fantastic views. Add a very nice service and it is easy to see why Sky Bar is popular. The crew working was both professional, but more so very friendly. If you have a table you can make your orders where you sit, otherwise you just head up to the bar.

Drinks and Food

During our 4 hour-ish stay we got to try quite a few of the fantastic cocktails available at Sky Bar Lisboa. One thing they all had in common: very well crafted and very tasty.

The ‘Moscow Mule’ is one of the bestsellers and we can see why, it was very refreshing. But there was also a lot more unique creations like the sour 'East India' (with Macieira, Cherry Licqour & Cointreau), the more easy-going and refreshing 'Hellow Yellow' (Gin & Passionfruit) and 'Russian Spring Punch' (Vodka & Raspberry), and a strong and spicy 'Pisco Paradise'.

To go with the cocktails there was a steady flow of snacks, but we also tried some larger and very tasty bar bites. The 'Cheviche Fish Tacos' were super fresh, and the 'Lamb Croquettes' both filling and mouth watering.

Apart from the above, the Sky Bar menu also includes a large selection of champagne and Gin & Tonics.

CONCLUSION

Come on up and enjoy the vibes, the views and fantastic cocktails. It is really a no-brainer and Sky Bar is a 'must-visit' when in Lisbon. Come earlier for soft vibes and a cocktail with views, or later for more crowds and a night out.

The rooftop bar looks great in both daylight and by night, and while the atmosphere turns up later on, it is always relaxed and very friendly. Sky Bar Lisbon is highly recommended!
