Rooftop Bars in Barcelona: Sangria and Martinis at Eclipse at the W Hotel

July 2, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

W Hotel BarcelonaLooking for the rooftop scene in Barcelona? There's no shortage of rooftop bars in the seaside city that knows how to party. Sky-high pools are also a hit, but when you're looking to take a siesta in style-- relaxing with a cocktail while checking out the views-- head to the W Hotel Barcelona, one of the coolest spots in town since it opened last year. Shaped like a billowing sail above the beachfront, the avant-garde skyscraper was designed by architect Ricardo Bofill. Ride up to the 26th floor, where the glass-enclosed Eclipse Bar showcases beautiful Mediterranean views. Grab a window seat, order up a fresh watermelon or passionfruit martini, and ogle the stylish crowd. Here's what Conde Nast Traveller (UK) says about the scene, managed by London cocktail gurus Ignite: "Evenings start slow and segue into full-on fiesta mode by midnight."
