Terrazas de altura
To the consolidated tradition of cañas (small beers) in the many and varied terraces in Madrid, there is a new fashion that has been added to it which is to do it a few dozen feet from the ground. This is how there are places that have emerged at different heights that they add the pleasure of enjoying a rooftop view of Madrid while you have a nice refreshing beer or a mojito.
At Tirso de Molina, on Calle Doctor Cortezo, 17, we find Casa de Granada, a regional bar, as the name indicates, that has recently renovated its facilities. Also worth checking out is Gaudeamus (Gau&Café), in the heart of Lavapiés, which you can go to through the library of the UNED (building of Escuelas Pías), on Calle Tribulete, 14.
In La Latina, with similar aesthetics and crowd, is the terrace of El Viajero, which has facilities on the street but also on a higher floor, which is incredibly pleasant in the afternoon. However, privilege comes at a price.
In a more chic aesthetic setting we have one of the most popular terraces in Madrid’s hotel guides. The Penthouse (Plaza Santa Ana, 14), which has a modern restaurant that serves fusion cuisine.
A special mention goes to the rooftop of the Círculo de Bellas Artes, redesigned a couple of years ago as a terrace-restaurant where you can enjoy anything from a beer to many light and varied dishes of international cuisine at reasonable prices. All of this with a spectacular view of Madrid, with the Metrópolis building right in front and the beginning of the Gran Vía to one side while the Town Hall and Plaza Cibeles is to the other.
It is most definitely a different way of getting to know a city that, of course, does not just exist at ground level. Although if you want a good view of Madrid from up high, what better way of doing it in one of our rooms with terrace, which have views of the Puerta del Sol.
