Círculo de Bellas Artes Rooftop Bar

The rooftop of the Circulo de Bellas Artes - a historic cultural building dating back to the 1880s - has some of the best views in Madrid. With those views come lines and a $5 admission price, but even in peak tourist season you shouldn’t have to wait more than 30 minutes. There are high tops and a covered seating area, but if you’re lucky enough to grab one of the 10 or so lounge beds, we suggest hanging out with some wine because you just snagged the best seat in the city.
