360° Rooftop Bar
Madrid’s rooftop bar scene has exploded in recent years, with no shortage of options for those looking for drinks and a view. But the 360° Sky Bar on the 26th floor of the Riu Plaza España on Calle Gran Vía has some of the most impressive panoramas of Madrid. What differentiates this rooftop bar from the rest is not only its massive size, but its skywalk: a glass-bottomed bridge and walkway that you’ll definitely want to avoid if going up an escalator makes you nervous.
You’ll probably have to wait in line and pay a small fee to get in (€5-10), but enjoying the colorful sunset reflecting on the city’s reddish rooftops over a cocktail or some vino is a Madrid must. Just know that most of the food is forgettable at best, so stick to drinks.
