Patrons & Locals Enjoy Spectacular Views of Lisbon from Sky Bar at Tivoli Avenida Liberdade Lisboa Hotel

The landmark Tivoli Avenida Liberdade Lisboa, the style-setting hotel in the heart of Lisbon and home of the perennially popular Sky Bar, can now add "FODOR'S BEST" to its list of accolades.

Fodor's, the leading name in travel guides for more than 80 years, selected Tivoli Avenida da Liberdade Lisboa as one of 8 Lisbon Hotels with Spectacular Views and its Sky Bar as one of Lisbon's Best Hotel Bars. Every year, the editors and experts of Fodor's evaluate thousands of hotels across the globe; only those offering a truly distinctive experience are given the Fodor's Best designation. The Fodor's Best hotel recipients are the best of the best providing a remarkable experience in their category.

"We're delighted to be acknowledged by Fodor's," says Rui de Sousa, General Manager of Tivoli Avenida Liberdade. "The Sky Bar is a jewel at the crown of Tivoli Avenida Liberdade; and we're pleased not only to share its stylish setting, delicious cocktails and tapas, and breathtaking views with visitors and locals alike, but to be recognized by Fodor's editors as the best in the city."

The historic Tivoli was built in 1933, and recently completed a €15 million refurbishment in 2017, with a cutting edge design by renowned architectural firm Broadway Malyan. The makeover added contemporary concepts and modern elements to the hotel's spacious bedrooms, plush leisure facilities, and stylish drinking and dining spaces, making the hotel the ultimate place to see and be seen in vibrant Lisbon.

The rooftop Sky Bar, which has been a summer staple in the city since it first opened, is now a year-round destination for stylish Lisbonites and visitors looking for the perfect urban chic cocktail space. An update to the rooftop added new covered spaces that allow glimmering winter sunset views without the chilly air (along with wonderful warming cocktails and tasty tapas), plus additional al fresco seating and more reserved and covered areas for when the weather warms up in the spring and summer.

Any time of year, visitors can experience the perfect sundowner at Sky Bar highlighted by curated craft cocktails, live music and popular DJs, fresh from the sea sushi and other gourmet small bites. Along with the stunning city panoramas, another impressive sight at Sky Bar is the spiral highlighted by an art installation by Luio Zao, painted in wild colors and highly contrasting patterns. The Sky Bar is open year-round nightly from 5pm to 1am.
