Where to find the best terraces
The first of the Madrid terraces we are recommending is that to be found in the Principal Madrid hotel.
La Terraza is located seven floors above Gran Via and offers you amazing vistas of the city from its terrace.
While enjoying the view why not sample some of the amazing cocktails and try a few of the nibbles created by its 2 Michelin star chef Ramon Freixa.
From here you might want to head across to Tartan Roof. This one is to be found above Circulo de Bellas Artes, an art center in the heart of the city. It offers you a completely different view of the city that few restaurants in Madrid can match.
Next, we are going to move on to the terrace at Casa Suecia which is situated on the rooftop of the NH Collection Suecia Hotel. It has been open for a few years now, and it has earned a reputation for being one of the best terraces to enjoy on warm Madrid summer nights.
To get to it you can enjoy views of the city going up in the panoramic elevator.

Inside its headquarters, you’ll find Bosco de Lobos. It’s one of the finest Italian Madrid restaurants.
But for those who want to enjoy some more enjoyable times then head to the Hat Bar. This rooftop terrace is to be found in the hostel “The Hat” which is located on San Lorenzo, and only a short distance from Plaza Mayor.
Once you reach this, you can enjoy a very happy time while enjoying all that it has to offer in the way of food and drink.
