The 5 Best Rooftop Bars in Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the most popular cities to visit in all of Europe – and the world. What many people don’t know is that Barcelona is also the best city in Europe when it comes to rooftop bars and magnificent terraces. Mostly because of the perfect climate, but also the large number of luxury hotels and mighty viewpoints.

At The Rooftop Guide you can find a list of all rooftop bars in Barcelona. But here’s a list of 5 favourite ones.

The Skybar can boast one of Barcelona’s best rooftop swimming pools. An amazing infinity pool with views over the entire city and the ocean. Unfortunately, it’s only available for the hotel guests. However, the rooftop bar is open to the public. Make sure to be here in good time. The terrace gets full quite fast, especially during the weekends. For a rooftop bar, the prices here are relatively affordable. Choose between various cocktails, cava and beers. The menu also has some bar bites for those that are hungry.

Roisin’s Perfect Day in Barcelona

My perfect day in Barcelona is perfectly simple. It consists solely of wandering around, stopping only to eat and drink.

I’ve lived in Barcelona for 8 months now after moving here in September 2014 and my favourite thing to do at the weekend is to wander around my local neighbourhood (barrio) whilst stopping off at bars, cafes and restaurants along the way.

The majority of my ‘perfect day’ would be spent locally in the areas of Born, Barceloneta and the Gothic quarter. I love exploring everything this great city has to offer, but I’ll stay close by for the purpose of this article, otherwise I could write for days.

Every day must start with a beautiful breakfast and at the weekend I treat myself by eating out. I’d start at a nearby square, Plaça de Sant Cugat, and sit outside one of my favourite places, Alsur Café. The menu is wonderfully varied. You can opt for the traditional café con leche with a pastry or try something a bit more adventurous like something from their diverse tea range.

Sarah’s Perfect Day in Barcelona

Arc de Triomf

“I have had many perfect days in Barcelona and inevitably they involve three things… sunshine, beach and friends.

For me, there are actually two types of perfect Barcelona days, one involves the discovery of another hidden treasure in the city that I didn’t know. The other is to introduce my friends to this magical city that I love.

My perfect day starts with a morning run to the Arc de Triomf along its avenue lined with palm trees and beautiful wrought iron lamps then on through the green oasis of Parc de la Ciutadella. At 10am, it is time for friends and breakfast, cafe con leche and a pain au chocolat (ok, maybe they are french, but they are still good here and France is just around the corner). And a freshly squeezed zumo de naranja (orange juice).
