The Fall of 2014 comes with good news to LGBT travelers as Lisbon sees the opening of a Gay Guesthouse right in the gay-districts of Bairro Alto and Príncipe Real - The Late Birds Lisbon. After the launch of GayShortRentalLisbon that offers, since 2012, 7 (and soon 3 more) charming apartments in Lisbon´s heart, The Late Birds Hotel is the latest brand from the developers of the Gay Urban Resort Concept.
The Late Birds Lisbon is a "Gay Men Only" Guesthouse located in the trendy centre of the city in the historical districts of Bairro Alto and Principe Real, where you can find the most stylish shops ranging from antics and design to revival fashion and new trends. These are also the "gayhoods" of Lisbon where most of LGBT-venues such as bars are located. Have a look at our Gay Lisbon Guide for a full description and location of each venue.
The Late Birds is also near the junction of Bica and Santa Catarina, amongst the most popular areas of Lisbon and at a 5 minute-walk from Chiado, Baixa and Avenida da Liberdade, the luxury-shopping areas of Lisbon and 10 minute-walk from Santos, the new Design district.
The Late Birds will open with 12 in-suites (but with 5 apartments to be added very soon), all with balconies, terraces or private deck. One of the highlights of the Late Birds will be the pool, located within a garden, and including a sun-deck area and a pool-bar.
The opening of The Late Birds Lisbon is one more indication of how Lisbon is increasing it's visibility and attraction as a LGBT-friendly destination and we expect to see a lot more news soon.
