Ritz Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon
May 11, 2018
Located off the lobby of the fabulous Four Seasons Hotel Ritz in Lisbon, Ritz Bar is a sumptuous escape designed with sipping fine cocktails and enjoying the good life in mind. The Ritz Bar is inspired by the style of world-renowned Portuguese artist Pedro Leitao, and as a result is a bold, yet still cozy, space full of scarlet and ebony splashes alongside plenty of artistic flash. Glossy marble, cherry red ottomans and chairs, animal print, dazzling paintings, a grandfather clock, and the artist’s own autographed piano set the tone inside Ritz Bar, while an airy adjoined terrace is adorned with soft white chairs and a striking sculptured wall mural. The drinks are as fashionable as the venue, running the gamut from unique house specialities inspired by the flavours of Portuguese spirits like the Porto Sunset – dry white port wine, raspberry, mint, lime juice, and a dusting of cinnamon – and Edward VII – red port wine, orange liqueur, aged brandy, ginger ale, and raspberry – to tried-and-true classics like manhattans, passion fruit martinis, mojitos, and cosmopolitans. The spirit and wine selection reads like a roll call reading of top shelf favourites, and with live piano music most nights of the week, you’ll quickly discover that the Ritz bar more than lives up to its plush name.
