If you have been in Madrid for the last couple of weeks (or months?), you have probably been coping with the summer heat and if you haven’t, chances are that you will soon… But when it gets cooler you might want to enjoy a drink (and more) so here are some of my favorite rooftop bars in Madrid!
Nice to meet you, near Plaza de Espana.
Rooftop of the Dear Hotel on Calle Gran Via a few meters from Plaza de Espana. You should go there to enjoy the sunset and take some cool pictures by the swimming pool. There is a restaurant as well (a bit pricey!).
Address: Calle Gran Via, 80.
Horarios: weekdays from 7.30am until 0.30am and weekend from 7.30 until 2am.
2. The Hat, near Plaza Mayor.
The Hat is located in the heart of Madrid a few minutes from Plaza Mayor. It is actually the rooftop of the hostel “The hat” so a lot of international people go there. The picture below is the beautiful view of Madrid’s old building you get from this place! I would definitely recommend to go – original and cool spot on the top of a hostel.
Address: Calle Imperial, 9, 28005 Madrid
Horarios: from Monday to Friday: 6pm until 11:30pm and Saturday and Sunday: 6pm until 00am
3. Gourmet experience, Callao.
A classic but how could I not mention it here? It was my friend Kelly and I one of our favorite meeting point. She is a tortilla expert and says they have the best ones so you should probably try. They have so many other options; from ice cream to Mexican food. If you haven’t tried yet, what are you waiting for !!??? It gets very busy especially during weekend but still, it is worth it!
Address: Plaza de Callao, 2, 28013 Madrid
Horarios: from 10am to 11:30pm
4. Tartan Rooftop Bar, Banco de Espana.
You’ll need 4€ extra to access to rooftop of this amazing place. The view is incredible isn’t it? The day we went there was very cloudy but it was still worth it. Imagine this view during sunset after a day at work! A few minutes away from Plaza de Cibeles and if you go by public transportation the nearest metro is Banco de Espana.
Address: Calle del Marqués de Casa Riera, 2, 28014 Madrid, Espagne
Horarios: from Monday to Thursday: 9am to 1:30am – Friday: 9am to 2:30am – Saturday: 11am to 2:30am – Sunday: 11am to 1:30 am
5. El Viajero, barrio La Latina
If you don’t know La Latina area yet, I’m sure you will. It is a “barrio” located in the city center of Madrid that is known for its tapas places, bars, and its nightlife. El Viajero is one of the spot you can’t miss: you can grab a drink and dance downstairs, go on a date on the second floor, and on the third floor is the rooftop where you can get a drink (or four!) with friends. It doesn’t matter the order you do it, but you need to check this place out!
Address: Plaza de la Cebada, 11, 28005 Madrid, Espagne
Horarios: Monday & Tuesday: Closed – Wednesday & Thursday: 11:30am to 1:30am – Friday & Saturday: 11:30am to 2:30am and Sunday: 11:30 to 1am.
I hope you like the post and that it has given you some ideas on where to go. Those bars are already quite well-known but a must-go to add on your list while in Madrid. iQué aproveche!
