Madrid’s Rooftops

24 February 2017 0 Comments Category: Just Landed, Living in Spain

We can’t say that winter is over but the sun is out, temperatures are up and some restaurants and bars are putting tables outside so people can drink a caña or their coffee on the terrace. So it’s time to make plans to enjoy the blue sky of Spain to the fullest.

For those expats who are living in Madrid, we’re sure you must know all of the rooftops in the capital… but if you don’t, we’ll be sharing our top five. And for those foreign citizens who are planning to visit or move to Madrid, we’re certain this list will blow your mind.

Let’s start with …


El Viajero


In one of the most authentic barrios of Madrid, La Latina, you’ll find this gorgeous and stylish rooftop. Viajero means ‘traveler’ and the name really suits the essence of this place. Once you go in, you start traveling through the experience of this magical spot.

If you’re looking for a place to actually live the true Madrileño style and you want to feel like a local, El Viajero will fit the bill perfectly. It’s a beautiful bar with the touch of Madrid’s aroma.

It’s a unique spot in the center of the city with a diverse menu and a two-sided atmosphere: during the day, not only can you enjoy the views but also taste the local cuisine beneath Madrid’s beautiful skies, and when the sun goes down El Viajero transforms your experience into a romantic velada with music under the moonlight.

Address: Plaza de la Cebada, 11.


Suites – Jardines de Sabatini


For those looking for a royal experience in the Spanish capital, these apartment suites are the perfect choice for you. You’ll not only get the feeling of being part of the Sabatini Gardens but will also be able to sit down and enjoy the view of the Royal Palace.

If you wait for the right time, you’ll watch a stunning sunset in one of the best places in Madrid. You can also have the best of two important cuisines: Mediterranean and oriental, with some chill-out music and a glass of wine.

Address: Cuesta de San Vicente, 16.


Vincci The Mint


The perfect place to get lost with a different type of plan in Madrid. The Mint’s rooftop is one the newest in this list and has a Fresh & Music concept that transforms your visit into a charming experience.

It also has a food truck filled with exotic drinks where you’ll delight in select street food surrounded by Gran Vía’s perfume.

Address: Gran Vía, 10.




On the top of the Hotel de las Letras, also in Gran Vía, you’ll find this intimate space on the 7th floor of the building. This is not place for crowds—it’s a place to enjoy in the company of a special person.

Make your reservations and spend a stunning day in a charming little place in the heart of Madrid. Some days a DJ takes over and turns the night into an intense and wild party.

Address: Gran Vía, 11.


The Hat


This is another perspective of a rooftop, designed to be cozy, for you to feel like you’re part of the clouds of Madrid. Some say it’s the perfect refuge to retreat from routine. The Hat is a hostel with a young touch.

Its rooftop can be hypnotizing and very casual at the same time. It’s what you do and the people you’re with that can make this place more special than it is. With a delightful view over the roofs of Tirso de Molina and La Latina, along with gorgeous decoration.

Address: Calle Imperial, 9.
