Top rooftop bars in Palma for 2019

Palma’s a great city-break destination, not only because of its world-renowned monuments and museums, charming old town and gourmet restaurants but also because it offers plenty of opportunities to soak up the sunshine thanks to a variety of rooftop bars scattered around the city. These are perfect to enjoy some pretty spectacular scenery with the sun beaming down on your face and your favourite cocktail in hand.

There’s a wide range of tipples up for grabs in most bars and restaurants around the island’s capital city: divine wines, imaginative cocktails, fish-bowl gin and tonics and, of course, thirst-quenching beer. Here’s our guide to the best rooftop terraces to appreciate Palma’s glorious architecture, stunning views and epic sunsets.

Hostal Cuba Sky Bar

Located at the edge of the trendy area of Santa Catalina, the Hostal Cuba Sky Bar is a trusty favourite for many. Over the years, it has made its mark as the place to go for a more sophisticated evening of inebriation in the hip district. Hop in the lift to the right-hand side of Bar Cuba and grab a table early to enjoy table service by some handsomely dressed waiters whilst embracing the sensational panoramic views of the harbour, old town and cathedral.

49 Steps

In an idyllic situation on a roof terrace along Port de Moll Vell, 49 Steps claims the best position to watch the sun go down, as well as some of the best views over Palma's harbour – you simply can’t beat this location. Its trendy vibe is created by chill-out music and a cool crowd sipping on cocktails all throughout the day and into the evening.

Hotel Almudaina Sky Bar

Seeking the ultimate city views? Hotel Almundaina hits the spot! This place is a hidden treasure – if you are distracted by all the fabulous shops along Avenida de Jaume III, you might just walk past its tiny entrance without realising. But if you manage to find it, you’ll be rewarded with some of the best views of Palma’s spectacular cathedral, the city’s historical architecture and the port. Being a more laid-back roof terrace, prices are especially reasonable here in comparison to other rooftops around Palma.

This is the place to kick back and relax on some comfortable seating with a fresh cocktail in hand. It has become a high-class haunt for locals and tourists alike. Come here to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and excellent views of the city throughout the day and into the evening.
