TOPO Belém is the most recent project offered to us with the TOPO signature. Now even more elegant and sophisticated than before, it brings us traditional Portuguese flavours and original cocktails from the five corners of the world. TOPO also runs the new CCB Café, located on the first floor of the Meeting Centre.
In the past, we had already been able to enjoy the view over an almost forgotten Lisbon with the castle in the background. This was followed by the ruins of the Convento do Carmo, and even the wonderfully decadent feeling of a night in Cais do Sodré, but what was missing was a sweeping view over the River Tagus. The recently opened TOPO Belém has been installed at the top of yet another emblematic building, the CCB – Fundação Centro Cultural de Belém, and it has prepared a Portuguese menu, with decidedly national delicacies and flavours, combined with multicultural cocktails bearing the TOPO signature and a beautiful selection of fine wines.
TOPO offers an executive menu that changes throughout the week, together with snacks and more elaborate dishes for dinner and at weekends. The bar provides a list of specially created cocktails from all five continents of the world, offering flavours that will contrast with the more typical and better known delights of Portuguese gastronomy, but which are a distinctive feature of TOPO’s multicultural identity.
The architecture and design of this space were the responsibility of the CCB, who invited Ana Costa, the head of Atelier Daciano Costa, to develop the project for its interior design in keeping with a concept of continuity – because, although the Centro Cultural de Belém was designed by Vittorio Gregotti and Manuel Salgado, its interior and furniture were designed by Daciano Costa.
This new project therefore sought to respect the identity of the CCB’s different spaces, while also bringing them up to date. The aim was to maintain the original furniture and complement it with some other iconic pieces.
The new TOPO Belém is a high-quality restaurant area with a most sophisticated cuisine, serving cocktails that are almost all entirely original and prepared by its highly-experienced bartenders, as well as a carefully prepared selection of wines designed to create a special harmony with the dishes.
TOPO is also responsible for another of the CCB’s restaurant areas, namely the CCB Café, which is a most welcoming space, serving rapid and simple dishes, and a place where you can also remain up-to-date with the latest novelties in the centre’s programming, while recalling some of the historic moments that audiences have experienced at the Centro Cultural de Belém.
