Had to wait for a table on roof terrace. So went to bar in lobby of hotel, where we met Marco. The cocktail I wanted they didn't have some ingredient, but Marco made me my own special one. This was delicious I think he called...More

Found at the top of the Bairro Alto Hotel. Superb views over the city. Very relaxing with chilled out music. Food was delicious. Fairly small in size so fills up very quickly 👌👌👌

A calming space in busy Bairro Alto, the rooftop bar is beautifully decorated and boasts lovely views over Lisbon. Although the service was warm and friendly, it was rather slow so don't visit when you're in a rush. This didn't put us off though and...More

We popped into the hotel to have drinks on the rooftop bar - first impressions were good and the rooftop looked lovely. They were overbooked and suggested we wait in the bar downstairs until a table became free, which they said would take 15-30 mins...More

Unfortunately the hotel is being extended but there is no noise on the terrace because of this. Wonderful views from here over the city. Drinks on the expensive side but it is part of a 5* hotel.More

Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance

theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or

On the top floor of Bairro Alto Hotel you'll find the BA Terrace, awarded as the 4th best hotel-terrace view in the world... a space enjoyed by everyone and well-known to the people of Lisbon, who enjoy the best that the city has to offer; in this case, it's having a good time while contemplating the unique view of Rio Tejo, of the old Lisbon rooftops and of the sunset from behind the bridge over Rio Tejo...

Breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack at Terrace BA
Come alone or with friends, for a meal, a snack or a drink, or even to simply relax and enjoy a good book on one of the comfy chaise longues, which invite you to do nothing at all...to the tune of good "chill-out" music.

The atmosphere on the terrace could not be more relaxed and the menu presents suggestions for all type of meals, though varies through the seasons. Count on light options, from salads to sandwiches, including the famous BA Ceasar Salad. Accompany your choice with the well-known ice juices, mojitos or BA's iced tea.
