Lisbon’s Castle of St. George has just introduced a new lounge on top of one of its towers. As the name indicates, the “Super Bock Lounge” is sponsored by the national Super Bock beer, although it serves more than just the nectar of the gods. There are also fresh fruit juices, sangria, and caipirinhas to wash down a selection of snacks. Those include sandwiches, salads, and bruschettas, which can be enjoyed at a table shaded by red umbrellas or sitting on one of the long comfy seats. Look down from the terrace and you’ll have all of Lisbon directly in front of you, and if you stay until dinner time, there is the excellent Casa do LeÃ£o Restaurant just below you for a more complete and refined eating and drinking experience.
Staying at the castle until the sun sets is in fact a great idea, especially now when days remain long and warm in Lisbon, even with October just around the corner. Â The new lounge opens at 12PM and remains in service until 8PM.
