Rooftop bar Granada

Rooftop-grade: 6/10

Prime season: May - October

Residents: 240 000

Climate: Mediterranean

Granada is located in Andalusia in southern Spain, but not by the Mediterranean coast. Instead it is seated 738 meters above sea level at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains. And while the temperatures are decent year round, it is mainly the very hot summer months from April to October that is rooftop season.

The rooftop bars in Granada range from modern and trendy rooftop terraces to more old-school and charming rooftop gardens, many offering fantastic views over both the famous monuments in the city and over the Sierra Nevada. Quite casual and relaxed in vibes, the number one drink to go for at the Granada rooftop bars is Gin & Tonic, that usually comes in large and impressive variations.

About Granada

Granada holds several famous and different buildings and areas, with both the Alhambra, an Arab citadel and palace, and the old town called the Albaicín, with fine examples of Moorish and Morisco construction. Nearby Granada you find the Sierra Nevada Ski Station, where the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 1996 were held. And since it is also just a one hour drive from the Mediterranean coast, it is a popular spot for both summer and winter tourism (or a combo of both).
