3 inexpensive rooftops for an evening out overlooking Barcelona (with cocktails, music and activities on the programme)

When in Barcelona, it's impossible not to succumb to the urge to sip a cocktail on its rooftops. At nightfall or sunset, Gaudi's ciudad is even more pleasant to contemplate. The terraces are a good alternative to the nightclubs, especially as the evenings can start earlier. Other, quieter terraces offer a more relaxing setting.

The rooftop of El Palace Barcelona

Who hasn't dreamt of attending an open-air cinema screening? Well, now you can, on the rooftop of the El Palace Barcelona hotel. From Wednesday to Sunday from 9.30pm, you can watch international films (with Spanish subtitles), with popcorn and a drink included.

The rooftop also offers the innovative concept of 'Rumba live' every Thursday, with live music played by a group of musicians from 7pm to 10pm, allowing early-birds to still party, and party-goers to get an early start.

The rooftop of Casa Batllo

How about having a drink with Gaudi (or at least his spirit). Not many people know this, but you can have access to the terrace of the Casa Battlo. A masterpiece of architecture, this colourful building offers a number of different options for visits, including early evening and evening tours.

If you choose the latter, you can enjoy a drink on the rooftop of Casa Battlo and admire the view from the roof over the whole of Passeig de Gràcia. There's also the 'Magic Nights' offer, which includes a drink, a ticket for the concert of your choice (depending on the programme) and a guided tour of the venue, making for a memorable souvenir of your stay in Barcelona.

The Barcelo Raval 360° rooftop

The rooftop of the Barcelo Raval hotel is, as its name suggests, a circular terrace with a 360° view over the whole of Barcelona. From Thursday to Saturday, a programme of different DJs come to mix, making for a fiesta, topped off with tapas and cocktails straight from B-Lounge, the hotel restaurant.

As an added bonus, the hotel has binoculars available for guests to take a closer look at all Barcelona's points of interest. Sightseeing while sipping a mojito on the rooftops of the Catalan capital – what more could you ask for?
