Summer is here and we don’t want you to miss out on any of the best rooftops in Barcelona. Having a drink and disconnecting from the daily routine with views is something to look forward to. Even more so if you’re on vacation. This is what rooftop terraces and bars offer, letting you almost touch the sky. There are those that provide a space more designed for gastronomy, others that bet on being a modern place for afterwork drinks accompanied by music and then there are some that have swimming pools atop fabulous hotels.

And whether for brunch or lunch, sunset cocktails or starry night views, Barcelona has several outstanding rooftops to discover. Especially those located in some of the best-known hotels in the city. If you have already visited some of the best restaurants with views of Barcelona, we recommend you visit some of the best rooftops in Barcelona, ​​and sip a nice drink, enjoy the flowing breeze and the 360º views that most have. Here are some of the best:

Barceló Raval Rooftop

The 360º rooftop of the Hotel Barceló Raval located on the 11th floor of the building in the middle of Rambla del Raval. One of the most popular hotels in the Catalan capital. Its distinctive modern architecture and its colorful façade make it one of the buildings with the most personality that can be found in the area. The views are among the widest that can be enjoyed in Barcelona, ​​so this is undoubtedly one of the best terraces with views of the city.

Its rooftop terrace is summer after summer, one of the most visited by both locals and tourists who want to enjoy the spectacular views it offers. Given its circular shape and its central location, it allows you to see any corner of the city while enjoying a cocktail or even a local beer. It also has a swimming pool, in case you want to enjoy the view while bathing. And then there’s a DJ that turns up the night with the best music.

The Roof at The Barcelona Edition

On the tenth floor of The Barcelona Edition hotel is The Roof, a rooftop terrace that provides you with panoramic view of the entire city where you can enjoy an innovative menu with small Latin American / Asian fusion dishes, as well as a juice bar where you can enjoy healthy smoothies. It also has a swimming pool and chaise lounges for those who prefer a bit of chillaxing time.

The Roof is one of the most desirable locations in Barcelona. It is a reference terrace where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city throughout the year, since its central part is prepared for dodgy weather thanks to retractable glass walls. They have a wide variety of local and international wines and the unique selection of artisan sake that will make your visit even more sensational.

The Rooftop at Sir Victor

If you are a Gaudí fan, this is your rooftop. Located right in front of two of the most iconic works of the Catalan architect: The Rooftop is a unique place, with a swimming pool and different corners from where you can see the Casa Milá and the Sagrada Familia. It is especially relaxing to visit at night, when these two Gaudí buildings remain illuminated. The Rooftop is the opposite of the typical luxury hotel and this means the atmosphere is a little more laid back and less touristy than some other Barcelona rooftops, while still with a young and lively vibe.

On top of Sir Victor hotel and open from seven in the afternoon until one in the morning, you can try the gourmet delights of Roca Bar, have a cocktail to the rhythm of live music in the open air, savor a Rocambolesc ice cream or taste a good selection of sushi. This is one of the best places to receive the sunset.

Wet Deck at W Barcelona

For those who think that a terrace without music does not make sense, and much less if it is not electronic, there is Wet Deck, located in the swimming pool of the Hotel W. Right on the beach! Live DJ sessions take place on this terrace every Sunday during the summer season and they prepare daring and different cocktails. Check their programming on the web and let yourself be carried away to the rhythm of the music.

The W hotel, known by many as the “hotel vela” because of its shape, was built on a breakwater, so it enjoys a privileged location on the sea. From the vantage point, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the beaches of Sant Sebastià and Barceloneta. Everything here conspires to provide the ultimate summer getaway to Barcelona.
