10 Reasons why I love Barcelona rooftops

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]“Barcelona, you have it all.” You can find everything in this city, especially in the summer. On the one side of the city you’ll get the total capital city feeling, and not even 30 min away you will enjoy lying on the beach. To be honest, I think Barcelona can treat every traveller. When the temperature starts to rise, there is nothing better than putting on your high heels and go for a refreshing cocktail in the middle of the city. What is the best place for drinking a refreshing drink and getting that overwhelming feeling in your stomach? I can hear you think… Ow Yes! Barcelona rooftops of course!!

“The reason why I date Barcelona is simple. Barcelona has it all: tapas + beach + sun + rooftops + dancing. Happiness guaranteed in this lovely city.”

I’m sure you like breathtaking views with a touch of luxury and good music. I’ll make you a list of the top 10 favorite rooftops. Barcelona has a lot of fabulous hotels you can go as a non-staying guest of the hotel. It’s worth visiting the rooftops of some of these hotels. During summer (and also winter), there is no better place to start you evening with a refreshing Mojito, watching over the sunset and the beautiful skyline of Barcelona. Relaxing on the couches, which are begging you to lie down and order your drinks in combination with great finger food. Don’t forget the beautiful music, which can be so amazing, you’ll end up dancing before even getting tipsy. During summer all the roof terraces are open, some of them can be closed during winter. You can check the website for more details. Follow my recommendations and you will see how much fun you will have. You only live once #jolo!

#1 Gran Hotel Central
This rooftop will give you one of the best views of Barcelona. Don’t miss the sunset at this place, because it’s breathtaking and a perfect set for taking pictures. For me this is one of the best rooftops, because of the intimate atmosphere and the spectacular design of the terrace. It’s a place, which is super chic but fashionably at the same time. I tried different kind of cocktails and they all tasted good. Also the non-alcoholic drinks are really good!

#2 Hotel me by Melia
The view from this rooftop, located on the 24th floor, is amazing. This place is visited by anyone who is anyone, from artist, pop stars and cool people from the city to famous football players. The designers created a perfect ambiance for a special evening with special friends.

#3 Hotel W Barcelona
The eclipse bar is a wraparound glass-fronted lounge on the 26th floor, managed by London cocktail gurus ignite. During summer there are parties at the terrace around the swimming pool at the ground floor. The people who come here are a mix of curious Barcelona residents and style-savvy travellers. The reason I love this place is because you can enjoy the beautiful city of Barcelona on the one side and the gorgeous sea on the other side. This luxurious hotel is a must see if you are visiting Barcelona. Cheers!

#4 Hotel Pulitzer
This rooftop is a super relaxing place with a Balinese-inspired atmosphere. There are plants with bamboo, bird-of-paradise flowers and olive trees. It’s an open and inviting space to listen to great music. This Hotel is located in the center of Barcelona so when you go up, you totally forget that you are in a cosmopolitan city. On Wednesday nights there is live music, varying from Cuban boleros to salsa. So being here, your night will probably end up in a catchy dance!

#5 Ohla Hotel
Do you wane see a 360 degrees view of the city? Than this is the right spot! This rooftop gives you a feeling you’ll never forget. It’s so beautiful and impressive to see the whole city. This is just a fantastic place in the center of Barcelona. It contains a boutique bar, a gastro bar and a terrace where you can chill out.

#6 HOTEL 1898
This hotel is located in the middle of the center near by Las Ramblas. It’s a perfect getaway to chill down and relax after walking through the busy and crowded streets. It’s funny that up here you almost here nothing from the busy streets underneath you. I always go to this rooftop during the day. It has a beautiful 360 degrees view where you can relax on the comfortable couches. Ask the waiters for a delicious fresh fruit shake! After this you’ll be ready for your next destination in the city 😉

#7 Hotel Majestic
The Majestic rooftop has one of the most luxurious and glamorous rooftops. I love to start my evening here on the Dolce Vita Roof terrace while listening to relaxing music. What’s better then dress up and heaving the feeling you never want to leave the place? The panoramic view is amazing, you won’t be disappointed.

#8 Hotel Casa Fuster
A fantastic modernist building in the heart of Barcelona with decadent interiors, a roof terrace with spectacular views included a jazz club. If you want to find elegance and luxury at a rooftop then you are on the right address at Terrassa Blue View. I L-O-V-E this place! And especially the great food they serve. Perfect place to go with good company, while admiring the best 360 degrees view.

#9 Hotel Omm
This is one of the most prestigious hotels in the city of Barcelona. It’s a perfect place to see and to be seen, especially on the weekends. At the same time this terrace is also calm, so you can chill down and enjoy your drinks and snacks. In the winter the atmosphere turns romantic by putting the fire on. When you are here in the evening you can go downstairs where you will find the nightclub Ommsession. It’s super trendy with a great atmosphere. Perfect place for dancing and drinking (to much) cocktails hihi.

#10 Mandarin Oriental
I was totally blown away when I came here. The view is so spectacular, that I couldn’t stop staring. This place is so elegant and classy that it makes the perfect ambiance. Be sure you take a look at the menu because they serve delicious dishes. Especially the sushi is great! Even when I think about it I can taste the sushi![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
