If what you are really looking for is a rooftop in the heights to drink with a spectacular view, we bring you three great places with character and a dreamlike panoramic to enjoy the Mediterranean summer as you deserve to.
One of the legendary cocktail rooftops in Barcelona is AlAire, the spectacular space that Condes de Barcelona has on its rooftop.

Having a drink in this place and continuing the party in the heights of the city is a great option.
