Rooftop bars in Madrid


Azotea del Círculo

Let’s start with a local favorite! This place is great to have drinks with tapas and start off the evening on a high note. There is an entrance fee, but the view is one of the best in Madrid, which attracts quite a crowd, so do book in advance if you want to make sure to get a table.

Located in Madrid’s Gran Vía, The Principal is a real oasis that provides shelter from the hustle and bustle of the Spanish capital. The garden-like décor elegantly frames a stunning, unrivalled view of the city. Definitely a place to remember for the next time you’re in Madrid.

Rooftop bars in Barcelona



Located at the top of the Mandarin Oriental hotel, Terrat probably has one of the best views of the city! In terms of rooftop bars in Barcelona, it is the place to be. A lot of greenery, an inviting pool, a sophisticated but chill atmosphere… You cannot go wrong with this place.

At the Grand Hotel Central, the Skybar offers a rare view of Barcelona in its entirety. The place has a very intimate atmosphere that makes it quite romantic, especially when the sun sets. Be aware that guests who are not staying at the hotel can only visit from 8pm and must pay an admission fee that includes a drink. But it is truly worth it!

Rooftop bars in Granada


BHeaven Granada

On the rooftop of Hotel Carmen, this bar is the happy place of everyone who enjoys a good 360° view. As the name implies, drinks and food are heavenly! They also organize cool events like afterworks, Mojitos nights, “showcookings” where you can witness impressive culinary mastery, etc.

Lemon Rock Bar & Hostel

In a typical house of the XVIIth century, the rooftop terrace of this place is truly something! In complete contrast with the interior of the building made of concrete walls and an industrial décor, the rooftop bar transports you to the beach with straw curtains, colorful wooden signs and surf boards hanging on the walls. The atmosphere is youthful and energizing, and you won’t be disappointed with their drinks!

Rooftop bars in Seville


La Terraza de EME

This place offers a spectacular view of one of Seville’s most precious jewels, its magnificent Cathedral. Located on the rooftop of the EME Hotel, this bar is a great photo spot and is perfect to admire the sunset. But don’t let the view make you forget about the cocktails! They serve pretty good ones there too.

Looking for a cozy, private place to enjoy a few drinks and a nice dinner? This is the spot for you. The Hotel Casa Romana’s Roof is a great place to spend slower and quieter evenings while enjoying nice views of the surrounding neighborhood. Highly recommended!


La Terraza at Hotel Dona Maria

This place is not another trendy, modern rooftop bar. The particular rustic charm of this bar fits perfectly with its view of the Cathedral. The terrace is open all year round and hosts fun evening DJ sessions.

Bonus spots

It’s hard to cover all the great rooftop bars Spain has to offer, and I hope that these will already help you plan amazing nights out. But just to make sure, here are some other incredible places that are worth mentioning!


Cova d’en Xoroi

Not exactly a rooftop bar, but a unique place with an amazing view! Cova d’en Xoroi is a real gem… The bar/club is nestled in the cliffside of Menorca, spreading throughout a network of caves. Prepared to have your breath taken away by the incredible view of the Mediterranean Sea!
