Barcelona rooftops. Terraces of hotels
Favoritos

Every year when the good weather arrives, the Barcelona rooftop terrace season unofficially starts. Around 40 of the city’s hotels offer the possibility of relaxing in these magnificent spaces throughout the warmer months.
It’s no secret that over the past few years it’s become fashionable for hotels to open up their terraces not just to residents but also to anyone who would like to enjoy a lovely evening whilst enjoying, in the majority of cases, some great views of the city of Barcelona.

Detailed information

In general, and providing they aren’t reserved for private functions, access to the hotel terraces in Barcelona is open to everyone and is free of charge. To enter them, there’s really no need to get dressed up, but we do recommend not turning up too scruffy, just in case you’re refused entry.

IS IT NECESSARY TO MAKE A PRIOR RESERVATION?
If you’re just going for a drink it shouldn’t be necessary to reserve in advance (but if you’re with a large group then perhaps it is advisable). If you’re planning to eat at lunchtime or in the evening, you will need to make a prior reservation, especially if your visit is during the weekend. You can usually either email or phone the hotel to make your reservation.

With a few exceptions, such as that of the terrace of the Hotel Claris, which is heated, the hotels generally open up their terraces in mid-spring, with the arrival of the warmer weather, and stay open throughout the summer.

The majority of hotels that open their terraces in summer do so every day of the week, although some only open on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. To attract more people, many hotels put on events such as live music, from jazz to house, and perhaps even a grand piano playing in the background. Collaborative events are also organised, such as the “Setmana de les Terrasses dels Hoteles” (the Hotel Terrace Week), in mid-May to early June, and Vespres Inedit’s (a series of free concerts), throughout the summer.

Opening days and hours of the hotel terraces

The opening days and times of the terraces are decided by the hotels, but in general those that open during the week close at around 23:00 or midnight (with access being restricted a few minutes before closing time). During the weekends opening is extended until around 1am or 2am.

SOMETHING TO NOTE
To be sure of the opening days and times beforehand, it’s always best to call the hotel you’re going to, or check the website. We have therefore included the phone number and email addresses of the hotels that we recommend.

What can we expect from the hotel terraces?

Barcelona’s various hotel terraces have all sorts of charms, some of which are common to all of them, but some are unique to each one. We therefore recommend that you go to more than one of the hotels during the summer months, to fully enjoy what they have to offer.

Panoramic views

The panoramic views that can be enjoyed from some of the rooftop terraces are one of the main reasons that the locals go to them, as you are able to see the city from a unique perspective that can usually only be seen from the terraces. Although it goes without saying, we should also point out that the views at night are completely different from those during the daytime, and as we think sunset is one of the best times of day to see the panoramic views, why not arrive in time to watch the sun go down, so that you benefit from both the daytime and night-time views. There’s really nothing better than enjoying a relaxing drink whilst watching a bright city such as Barcelona begin to take on an intense golden hue, then in just a few minutes becoming dark, but lit up by the city’s bright lights.

Lounge and chill-out areas

Nearly all of the hotel terraces have lounge areas with sofas, and sometimes, as is the case with the Hotel 1898 or in the W Barcelona, there are even loungers on which you’ll be able to lie down whilst enjoying a drink or two.

Live music

Although not always the case, it’s quite common for the evenings and nights to be livened up with live music performances, whether it’s relaxing jazz, pop or chill-out, or more up-beat music to give the evening a livelier feel (techno, house, DJ sessions etc).

Lunch, dinner, drinks and snacks

As well as being able to enjoy a drink and a light snack, whether it’s breakfast or a cocktail, many of the hotels also have a restaurant service on their terraces and you’ll be able to have lunch or dinner there. Although you’ll find that they might be a bit pricey, we think that in this case it’s worth treating yourselves!

Piscina

Swimming pool
Some hotel terraces have swimming pools, but their use is generally reserved for residents, so before turning up at the hotel in your bikini, best check in advance!
