Barcelona is packed with bars but sometimes you want to shake things up and do things a little differently. Having a drink or a cocktail with a breathtaking view of the city could be just the solution that you’re looking for. Barcelona offers many rooftop bars in beautiful locations just waiting for you to discover, making your visit to Barcelona truly magical!
The Pulitzer Terrace
Resting above the Hotel Pulitzer in the heart of the city is the Pulitzer Terrace, a rooftop terrace that’s open 7 days a week during the summer until the end of September. You can enjoy a drink or some tasty food starting from 6 PM until midnight. Five nights a week you can listen to some cool tunes, either live or by local DJs that will get you up and dancing. Enjoy a cocktail from the full-service bar and pair it with a tapa like Spanish ham or cheese and be prepared to be amazed by not only the views of the Pulitzer Terrace but also the ambiance and excitement.
Atop the Villa Emilia Hotel, a stone’s throw away from the Metro Line 1 stop Rocafort, is La Terrassa. This beautiful rooftop offers stunning views of the city as well as a varied menu of food and drinks. The advantage of this bar is that it’s open mostly all day, from 11 AM to 1 AM. You can enjoy the city by morning or night, depending on the experience that you want to have. They offer two menus, “vermut” and “barbecue” depending on the time of day. While a snack and a drink at La Terrassa isn’t the cheapest in town, it’s definitely worth it for a special occasion.
