This Father’s Day, Sunday 19th June 2022, all families staying at Martinhal Chiado can also treat Dad to their own complimentary cocktail during their stay.

Surrounded by refreshing garden-style interiors, music and beautifully crafted Gin based cocktails, the focus is also on fresh, surprisingly light and thoroughly enjoyable signature cocktails designed with Low & No alcohol drinks for guests to enjoy. The menu is complete with delicious “tapas and pinchos” to enjoy in their upbeat atmosphere and visitors can even explore the art of making their own G&T in the fun and upbeat ambiance in the heart of Chiado.

Coffee lovers will not want to miss the smooth Expresso Martini mixing Ketel One vodka, coffee liqueur and freshly brewed espresso, the Pink Lady will seduce fruit and sour flavours’ fans and the Seville Negroni is the option for those who enjoy something a little more bittersweet.
