The Place To Be In Portugal’s Capital Of Cool

One of the oldest cities in Europe, this luminous capital is not only renowned for its vintage trams, pasteis de nata cake shops and melancholic Fado clubs – Lisbon is also a nexus for creative start-ups, and contemporary European urban life, writes Andrew Forbes (The Luxury Editor).

SUD Lisboa, the stylish waterside dining & leisure venue is very much part of the Portuguese capital’s innovative renaissance. With a privileged location in the historic district of Belém, with photogenic views of the Tagus River, and the iconic 25 de Abril suspension bridge, SUD Lisboa is Lisbon’s ground-breaking venue. Combining cocktails, gourmet bites and cool DJ sets at the infinity SUD Pool Lounge; Mediterranean dining on the SUD Terazza; with the high-end events space, the SUD Lisboa Hall, this is Lisbon’s unique leisure destination.

After many years visiting Lisbon, it’s refreshing to experience a more contemporary (and dare I use that word, ‘cosmopolitan’ ) side of the capital. The old world charm of Alfama and the late night buzz of the Bairro Alto are undeniably captivating, yet the newly revitalised area along the banks of the river Tagus, where one finds SUD Lisboa, is where Lisbon’s past fuses with an exciting future. It’s the place to be.
