Mama Shelter’s irreverence arrived in Lisbon

new project 07 March 2022

The most recent unit of Mama Shelter hotel group opened on January 12th. With hotels all over the world, the brand founded in Paris in 2008, by the Trigano family (co-founder of Club Med), is now in Portugal. FN hotelaria was the consultant, designer, supplier and installer of hotel equipment selected to furnish this new hotel.

For its first hotel in the Iberian Peninsula, Mama Design Studio conceived an irreverent, daring, colorful and fun hotel, with a singular eccentricity and a pop culture capable of embracing elements of Portuguese culture. Viúva Lamego or Bordallo Pinheiro are national brands that were integrated into the decoration and the Portuguese maritime history was not forgotten either.

As is characteristic of Mama Shelter brand, and in Lisbon it couldn't be different, the entertainment in the hotel is a constant, with a musical agenda with concerts and DJs.

Mama Shelter Lisboa has a very strong gastronomic component, which led Serge Trigano, in an interview with the portuguese newspaper “Público”, to define this hotel as “A restaurant with rooms above”. 130 rooms of different types are distributed over 8 floors.

In the restaurant it is possible to find a combination of flavors of French and Portuguese cuisine, creations of the team led by Chef Nuno Bandeira Lima. It also includes a pizzeria, featuring a menu dedicated to the take away service. Pizzas are served throughout the day, without interruption, and cooked in a wood oven visible from the outside.

With capacity for 200 customers, the restaurant also has an area dedicated to pastry. Initially with breakfast suggestions, it will include brunch on weekends from March onwards.

The bar has a capacity for 28 people. Signature cocktails are the main proposal of this kind of island that serves as the center of the hotel.

As for outdoor spaces, in addition to the patio and terrace with a total capacity for 60 people, as of April, the rooftop will be able to accommodate 160 customers, an improvement that will allow a differentiated meal service in the summer months.

FN hotelaria was the company chosen by Mama Shelter hotel group to equip this new unit in the portuguese capital. FN hotelaria was responsible for the supply and installation of equipment for the hotel’s foodservice zones: kitchen equipment for the preparation and production areas (hot kitchen and cold kitchen), pizzeria, in which stands out a Valoriani wood oven, pastry and pantries. The bar areas, cold rooms, storage areas and staff refectory were also object of our intervention.
