Mama Lisboa to celebrate Portuguese heritage upon opening in January 2022

by | 15 Nov 2021 | Design

Boasting 130 bedrooms by Mama Design Studio, Mama Shelter’s inaugural offering on the Iberian Peninsula will feature Viúva Lamego tiles, local marble and fish-shaped lights.

The hip Mama Shelter brand is planning to make waves in the Portuguese capital.

Mama Lisboa gears up for launch

Mama Shelter, the French hotel brand specialising in bold, colourful and fun hotels, has announced that its latest project, Mama Lisboa, will open on 12 January 2022. Centrally located between Príncipe Real and the Marquis of Pombal Square, it’ll incorporate 130 bedrooms by Mama Design Studio spread over eight floors.

This stylish scheme will have Viúva Lamego tiles on its façade; blue-wave carpets in the bedrooms; an island bar crafted from local marble; tiled columns; fish-shaped lights; and a green-, white- and terracotta-painted patio. 

Serge Trigano, co-founder of Mama Shelter, said: “Mama Lisboa is a compendium of the dazzling light of the city, of the energy and nonchalance that reigns there, of the modernity and creativity of its inhabitants. Your only dilemma will be tearing yourself away to venture out and experience the magic of this city.”

A Portuguese twist on French gastronomy

The restaurant, a Portuguese reinvention of a traditional French brasserie, will offer specialities from both countries as well as Mama Shelter’s signature dishes. Plus there’ll be a pizzeria serving the brand’s popular pizzas, which will also be available to take away.

Meanwhile, the rooftop, open from morning till late, will have its own kitchen, briquette bar and DJ station. And guests will find smart TVs framed in cork, tabletops made from recycled bottle stoppers, lampshades crafted out of Portuguese straw and decorative artworks by Bordallo Pinheiro in the colourful bedrooms.

Last but not least, Mama Lisboa will offer visitors access to Atelier, a meeting space with capacity for 25 attendees, in the building next door.

Cédric Gobilliard, managing director of Mama Shelter, said: “Mama Shelter is not a hotel but a living place that contributes to the local economic dynamism. Mama is, above all, a meeting place where locals mingle with travellers or businessmen, and vice versa. At Mama, life is in full swing from morning until late at night.”
