And all this for an average price of 7€.


Oscar Rooftop

Who doesn’t like to chill on the roof of a hotel? Especially in a city which has almost 300 days of sunshine a year, the Oscar Rooftop offers a 360-degree view of Madrid and is where many locals get together to enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine, a cocktail or 3 or 4 or more.. (but always drink responsibly)! It was recently closed for renovations but reopened as a fully equipped four-season rooftop terrace with glass panels, sunbeds and outside heating making it so easy to enjoy this little part of heaven in the center of a booming city all year round!

1862 Dry Bar

Unlike Macra Workshop Bar, 1862 Dry Bar praises the old fashioned way of drinking spirits.

Head over to Casa Bonay Hotel a boutique hotel in the center of Barcelona, where you'll find multiple bars and restaurants with fresh hipster concepts. Libertine is one of them, and it groups everything you ever needed in a social environment. It’s the calm, sophisticated type, where you can go dressed casually for a beer or if you feeling sassy have one of their fabulous cocktails in a fancy attire before heading out to one of Barcelona’s famous clubs.

El Bombon

Creating a hot environment and serving cold mojitos that is the recipe for the success of El Bombon.
