Hotel do Chiado - Roof Top Cocktails & OystersUp in the air let's bring you to another rooftop bar but this time we think it's a better daytime rather than night time venue. Although this hotel is spacious when you get past the ground floor the entrance is through a single glass door so it can be tricky to identify so let's try and get you there first.
If you are standing in the square above and facing the statue of Luis de Camões (incidentally he is one of Portugal's finest poets), then turn 180 degrees and walk down Rua Garrett until you you come to the T-junction at the end of the street. When there, cross the road and turn right and approx 25 metres downhill you will come to the glass door with the hotel name on it. It's a really small reception area so ask to take the elevator to the Rooftop Garden Bar. The views are spectacular from here looking over the terracotta tiled roofs with Castelo de Sao Jorge in the distance the Lisbon Elevator to you left and the river Tagus to your right.
There is a choice of a terrace or garden to sit out in and also and oyster bar as a special treat. We recommend as a daytime visit because the colours are vibrant in the sunshine and the views give you a lovely perspective of the city with the twisting streets of Alfama running below the castle. Again this hotel is also a great central location and there is a varied choice of rooms. When you are at the rooftop bar you will notice to your left and right, garden terraces. These are small gardens which are essentially form part of the balcony of some bedrooms. There are also a few rooms at the front of the hotel with magnificent high windows and views looking up Rua Garrett to Praça Luis de Camões.
