Roof terraces with views in Barcelona

Top terrace bars with views in Barcelona

If you are up for a classy night with a marvellous view or desperately trying to escape from a city noise, I have a good plan for you.

Have a look at the list of terraces I selected for you, and pick the one to enchant you with its atmosphere and breathtaking views.

Alaire at Hotel Condes de Barcelona

Alaire bar and terrace with views Barcelona

To be honest it is one of my favourite places in Barcelona. It is just wonderful! And let me explain why. First of all, it has a marvellous view on Passeig de Gracia and “La Pedrera” (in case you are lost in oodles of attractions, this is a famous Gaudi building with creamy shaped tops ).

Furthermore, during summer nights from Monday to Wednesday and on Sunday you can enjoy live music.

Just imagine yourself on the beautiful white couch, rolling back your eyes in pleasure, while sipping a martini and singing along with a bearded guitar player: “Nooooo, Iiii don’t wanna fall in looooove” ( I’m referring to “Wicked Games” by Chris Isaak).

Depending on the day you decide to come, bolero, bossa nova, jazz or DJ sets will take you away by its beautiful rhythm.

In summer it is better to visit the terrace after 7-8, during the daytime it might be too hot. If you plan to have dinner, book a table, otherwise, you risk waiting for ages or to be “kicked out” by personnel, demonstrating their deepest grief and anguish for not having you placed.

Order tapas to share, portions are creatively served, delicious and quite big, so four or five different dishes will be enough for two people.

But if you are alone, order a bottle of wine, get drunk, and torture yourself with masochistic thoughts how unfair your life is. At this marvellous place, even that turns out to be an enjoyable pastime.

Prices here are quite reasonable, the place is not cheap but it is definitely a good value for money.

Where you can find it: Carrer de Mallorca, 250, 08008 Barcelona

Wet deck terrace at W hotel

A breathtaking view of Barcelona beachfront greets you with its charm, as far as you find yourself on the Wet Deck terrace.

Unfortunately, you can enjoy the view during daylight only if you are a guest of the W hotel, or in case you are super charismatic and persuasive, if not the terrace is ready to open out its posh arms for you only from 8 pm. Nevertheless, the scenery is worth seeing!

Treat yourself (with prices they have, better somebody treats you) with a blueberry mojito or cruel summer (I absolutely like the name of the cocktail!). In case you are not satisfied with a selection provided, a barman will be happy to prepare a cocktail exclusively for your taste.

If you are hungry, fetch a couple of cold or hot bites. Some of them are veggies, such as detox green-pacho with spinach. In case you decide to have dinner, reservation is a must since the place is incredibly popular.

The Wet Deck terrace is famous for its Sunday evening parties from May to September. The place turns out into a light version of “vanity fair”. Stay away if you are allergic to presumptuous people, since you may bump into them here.

Where you can find it: Plaça de la Rosa dels Vents, 1, Hotel W, 08039 Barcelona

Skybar at Gran Hotel Central

The Skybar does a rooftop drinking in style. The terrace is overlooking La Ribera neighbourhood with Santa Maria del Mar on the horizon, the 14th century Catalan Gothic Church (if you can recognise it, of course).

From 9 pm the bar invites you to float above the city, sipping an exquisite cocktail to the relaxing rhythm of lounge music. Don’t sit too close to the pool! I made this mistake, seduced by the twinkling water and promising freshness.

An hour later, when joyful inebriation was captivating my weak body, and as my movements were getting smoother but less precise I swung towards a wicked pool in a happy spree.

Can’t express my gratitude to the waiter, who was right there serving another cocktail and saving me from a wet embracement. What a great and attentive personnel!

If you are up for dinner, it will cost you 35€ and involve a starter, a main course, and a dessert. The choice is not too abundant, but you will definitely find what appeals to your taste.

Enjoy the view until you get dizzy, and get dizzy with cocktails. Despite they will cost you a penny, (each one is worth 16 €) don’t hesitate to pamper yourself, otherwise who else will?

Where you can find it: Via Laietana, 30, Gran Hotel Central,  08003 Barcelona

Terraza 360- Barcelo Raval Hotel

360 terrace with terrific views overlooking Barcelona

As the city heat starts loosening its exhausting claws, Terraza 360 welcomes you to enjoy the freshness of the evening and the beauty of the views.

As the name suggests, the place gives you an opportunity to have a 360 view and observe the city in all directions. It is thrilling to walk around the rooftop and try to distinguish sports you are acquainted with.

The terrace menu offers Asian and Mediterranean cuisine, which is quite pricey but really delicious.

In case you devoured a tasty street burger on your way to the terrace and don’t feel like eating at all, enjoy a marvellous perspective with a glass of cava, which has a relatively good price of 5€.

If you are not a Cava fun, fetch good old Gin&Tonic: selection is good and price varies from 12to 15€.

The Terraza 360 is famous for its Sunday brunches, where you can have a tasty anti-hangover cocktail to the rhythm of relaxing music played by an invited DJ.
