If you like surprising spots in unpredictable places, PARK Bar in Lisbon is for you.
– Closed on June 12 and 13 –
Not just for the place itself but the experience of arriving there is worth the visit.
Walk down Calçada do Combro on the right side of the street until you get to a big gray and cold parking lot building. That’s right. It may feel strange because all you can see is cars and fences and you think “wait, this is a no walking-person zone”… but yes, that’s the way in!
It’s an intriguing experience for first timers, as they look around puzzled, wondering if they’re in the right place. I just love watching them and the complicity you can feel with total strangers as you go up the 5th floor, cramped together in an awkward tiny elevator, with scribbled walls and half stickers hanging out. (Don’t worry you can also go up through the stairs)
PARK is on the 7th floor but believe me it is worth the walk. It’s like arriving at an oasis garden, or a Balinese beach bar, with plants and wooden decks, but on a city rooftop. You instantly feel the groove of the DJ’s music and the cool and friendly atmosphere.
Take your friends there at the end of the day and finally relax and enjoy the incredible view, in between delicious burgers and your favorite drinks.
