Chances are, that if you are planning a destination wedding in Barcelona you will have guests coming in from abroad too. A nice way to welcome them to Spain and to meet up with them before the wedding.
Barcelona is full of great roof top terraces, perfect for a casual welcome cocktail. A welcome cocktail is the perfect way to organize a casual get-together. In this post I will list a few of my favorites. I’m focusing on hotel terraces this time, since it’s very convenient in case you’d like to accommodate your guests at the same hotel.
Terraza Alaire, rooftop terrace at Hotel Condes de Barcelona
A large and modern terrace in the heart of Barcelona. You find it on the 8th floor of Hotel Condes de Barcelona. It offers great views over the Passeig de Gracia avenue. You can even see some of the city’s landmarks such as La Pedrera (Casa Milá) and Sagrada Familia church from afar.
La Terraza del Duquesa, rooftop terrace at Hotel La Duquesa de Cardona
A great rooftop terrace overlooking the Port Vell. This terrace is located in the Hotel La Duquesa de Cardona, at the border of the gothic district.
Terraza Arola, at Hotel Arts
Seafront terrace at luxurious 5 star Hotel Arts, located in the Port Olímpic district of Barcelona. If you have been to the beach in Barcelona city, you might have noticed that by the end of the beach there are two tall buildings. Just next to these buildings there is a metal, goldfish monument. The terrace is just close to the goldfish.
sun deck, at Hotel W
Organize your welcome cocktail or welcome party at a sun deck at Hotel W, located just by the beach. The terrace offers great views over the beach. The hotel itself is located in the Barceloneta area.
The terrace at Hotel SB Glow
This super modern hotel is located in one of the business districts of Barcelona, the Glories area. It offers a terrace with great views of the city, specially the Torre Agbar which is one of the land marks of Barcelona. At this terrace it’s also possible to have weddings.
La Isabela, at Hotel 1898
This cozy, rooftop terrace is located in the boutique Hotel 1898 just next to Las Ramblas. Even if it’s quite large it offers an intimate atmosphere thanks to the decoration. Offers a 360 degree view of the city.
Sky Bar, at Grand Hotel Central
This terrace is located in the heart of the old town, with incredible views over Barcelona on the top flor of Grand Hotel Central. It can accommodate up to 150 guests in cocktail. This is one of my personal favorites!
In the surrounding area
There are also a couple hotels located a little bit outside of the city, but that still offer great views of the city.
Gran Hotel La Florida
This is a 5 star hotel located upon the Tibidabo hill, with beautiful views over the city. They have several terraces that can be used for cocktails or weddings.
Hotel Miramar is located upon the Montjuïc hill, and offers large outdoor spaces overlooking the city and the sea. This hotel also allows to have weddings and celebrations.
And that’s it for this time. I hope you got some ideas for your welcome cocktail, or wedding!
