Rooftops in Málaga, fun at new heights



Rooftops in Málaga, fun at new heights

Rooftop and Al Fresco dining is something the citizens of Málaga enjoy on the regular, with family and friends, from the early evening to well past midnight

You can find a great selection of rooftops, sky lounges and terraces spotted all over the city, where thanks to the wonderful weather, you can get together all year around.

Having a drink at one of the rooftops has become an usual occurrence, taking time to unwind from the stress of the daily activities. There´s some with pools and others with spectacular views, or both! Most of them also have a great variety and latest trends on cocktails, amuse bouches, culinary offer and a great modern and young ambiance.

The Rooftops, a colorful oasis

The classic evening drink or the summer night’s meet-ups have moved their location to higher levels. There’s so many colorful, exotic and bohemian spaces, with a chill out vibe, where you can find lidos and cushy sofas, almost being able to reach the sky. These venues are so instagram worthy, they will surely give something to talk about to everyone on social media.

These idyllic places are blooming with their mixology offer, much like New York or London, with menus full of classic spirits and new blends created by their bartenders. In addition to mojitos, caipirinhas and daiquiris, there’s also a selection of drinks created as an homage to Málaga, using local ingredients and flavors, like Señorito or Jardín de los Monos. All this paired with a great view of the city’s sunset.

In hotels and historic locations

More and more hotels have also jumped in the rooftop wagon, building a bit of paradise on their rooftops. This summer trend focuses mainly on the Old Town of Málaga, in streets like Molina Lario, Granada o Alcazabilla, offering amazing views of the city’s skyline and intricate street map. From here you can spot iconic buildings in the heart of Málaga, like the Cathedral, the Roman Theater or the Alcazaba. Others are valuable structures like San Juan’s Church, Los Mártires Church, or San Felipe Neri’s Church.

Parties, fashion shows, DJ sessions and gastronomic encounters are just a few of the activities you can find in these rooftops.

The offer also jumps to the other side of Gualdamedina, with venues that have integrated the cultural offer of the city, with live music or corporate events. They also have a great food offer, with traditional restaurants, as well as Mexican, Italian or Pan-Asian. Food that speaks to all the senses clearly has great value in this type of spaces

The trendy and modern Soho, with a great number of restaurants, is another place where you can find rooftop terraces. Located at streets like Casa de Campos or square Poeta Alfonso Canales, these have a privileged spot where you can see the Mediterranean as well as Larios Street, the Main Alameda, the Park, the Muelle Uno, the Port and the symbolic Farola, the only lighthouse with a woman's name in the Spanish Peninsula.
