Possibly the best thing about the new TAP Lounge at Lisbon Airport is the manned bar, which is nothing but superb. If you fancy a gin & tonic you have no less than five different gin brands to choose between, including Hendrick’s and the tasty Portuguese Sharish gin, and they put a serious effort into every cocktail, really taking their time to mix it properly and adding some garnishes. Most impressive.

And they have the very tasty Pastéis de nata in the lounge as well, the traditional Portuguese custard tarts, which are delicious.

If you travel from Lisbon on TAP or another Star Alliance carrier I can warmly recommend you to visit the bar, which is located at the opposite end from the self-service buffet area, to the right after the entrance.
