City trip Barcelona: What rooftop bars to visit

Barcelona is one of the finest cities in the world and it is an amazing place with all the crowds, the sights and the sounds. At the ground level it can be an overwhelming place. However, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city from upstairs but you need to pay a little premium for a drink or a bite. Our experts have carefully handpicked 5 best rooftop bars in the Catalan capital from where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset.

  1. Blue View, Hotel Casa Fuster

If you are in the trendy Gracias neighborhood, the Blue View rooftop bar is a must visit as one can enjoy a straight and lovely view of the Passeig de Gracia from the terrace of this rooftop bar. There is also a DJ who spins it  from Thursdays to Saturdays and just after a couple of drinks on the terrace you can head downstairs to the Jazz Lounge to enjoy some great music.

Timings: Noon to 2 am on a daily basis

Cost: EUR 8 for beer and EUR 16 for cocktails

  • Terraza Alaire, Hotel Condes de Barcelona

This is a classy corner terrace from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Sagarada Familia. The rooftop is quite huge and is an excellent venue for a party with live music playing on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On the other nights you can groove the music played by the local DJs.

Timings:  Noon to 2 am on a daily basis

Cost: Beer at EUR 4 and Cocktail at EUR 14

  • Wet Bar, W Barcelona

This place is a little bit pricey and majority of the seats are reserved for hotel guests only. Still there is no place in Barcelona that can beat the beautiful view of the beach from the terrace of the West Bar. The service is excellent and the Eclipse Club is nearby wherein you can party all night long.

Timings: Daily, 10am to 2 am

Cost: Beer at EUR 6 and Cocktails at EUR 16

  • Sky Bar at Grand Hotel Central

Even if you have not put up at the Hotel you can still spend some quality time at the beautiful looking rooftop Sky Bar. It is open from 1:30 to 9 pm. Outside these timings the bar remains exclusive to hotel guests. There is also an infinity pool that affords a magnificent view of the Old Town of Barcelona.

Timings: 1:30 pm to 9pm

Cost: EUR 20 for external customers and price includes one drink.

  • La Isabela, Hotel 1898

If you are looking to escape the stifling atmosphere of the tourist crammed La Rambla district, then you must come to La Isabela. It is a very stylish looking rooftop terrace that just overlooks the busiest street of Barcelona and it is one of those places where you can feel the pulse of this city but without the crowds. The views from the terrace are sensational, to say the least. When you are here you should try the ginger beer and/or Kraken rum which is a house specialty.
