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.
Skybar at Grand Hotel Central
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.
Chill-Out Terrace at Ohla Barcelona
A small and cozy rooftop with a luxurious feeling. Here you can find both cabanas, sun loungers and an infinity rooftop pool. Perfect for the warmer days during summer. The bar serves delicious cocktails and smaller bar bites from the Spanish kitchen. During the daytime it can be very calm on the terrace and sometimes you can even find yourself all alone. In the evening there’s more people and you should book a cabana in advance to be sure to get good seating. This rooftop is located in the city centre at the 5-star hotel Ohla Barcelona, with views over the Mediterranean Sea and the Barcelona skyline.
La Dolce Vitae at Majestic Hotel
A large and busy roof terrace with one of the best views in all of Barcelona. When entering the terrace you’ll get a feeling of being on top of the world. For the guests at this luxurious hotel, there’s a smaller rooftop pool to cool off in. This is a perfect place if you like relaxation in a luxurious environment. There’s a large number of comfy lounge sofas to hang out on. All of them with superb view of the city and ocean. You can also see the famous church La Sagrada Família from one side of the terrace. This is a perfect rooftop to visit in the evening before you head out for dinner.
The Rooftop at The Serras
One of the few hotel roof terraces in Barcelona with views over the fantastic port. And there’s more unique and awesome things about this place. How about a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves fantastic food and wines, a rooftop swimming pool and cocktails served in plastic bags. If you want an extra ordinary rooftop experience, this is the place to visit. The Serras is a relatively newly opened boutique 5-star hotel where everything oozes quality. If you’re not a guest at the hotel it’s best to book a table in advance. Perfect for both pool hangout and romantic dinners.
