Best Rooftop Bars in Cartagena
With year round beautiful weather, Cartagena is THE place to sip on a rooftop cocktail with a view. Whether you have a classic piña colada in hand or a more unique concoction, don’t miss out on the chance to relax or party in style.
Here are some of the best rooftop bars in Cartagena listed in alphabetical order because we couldn’t possibly pick our favorites!
Alquimico’s rooftop bar is easy to miss. You’ll have to make your way through a swanky 1920s-esque bar to find the stairs, but the trek is well worth it. Upstairs you’ll find a more laid back vibe with a short but impressive cocktail menu to match.
La Jugada Clubhouse
Take The Great Gatsby, add a tropical twist, and what you’ll get is La Jugada Clubhouse. The terrace of this place is so cool, it has its own name: Daisy The Rooftop. Expect fun and inventive cocktails (one even comes with a flamingo floatie!) and views of the colorful cathedral.
Mar y Zielo
This trendy restaurant with its creative cuisine is one of our favorites for dining out, but the rooftop is just as fun. You can grab a few drinks and listen to the live DJ spinning some relaxing house beats or enjoy your entire meal up there. Either way, the atmosphere of this rooftop will not disappoint with its vine draped entry, perfectly dim lighting, and up-close views of the cathedral.
Mirador Gastro Bar
The recently renovated Mirador Gastro Bar is one of few rooftops offering views of Cartagena’s iconic Clock Tower. Perfect for some late night munchies or a strong cocktail, the Mirador Gastro Bar takes the lounge life to another level.
Looking for some daytime rooftop action? Then head over to the rooftop bar at the Movich Hotel. This sky-high terrace has not one, but TWO pools to enjoy and unbeatable views to match. With a panorama of both the historic center and the more modern Bocagrande neighborhood, it might even be fair to say that this is the best rooftop view in the city. We especially love grabbing sunset cocktails here.
Townhouse Rooftop If an all-day, nonstop party with free-flowing drinks and food sounds like the perfect way to enjoy your vacation, then the Townhouse Rooftop is calling your name. Located on the terrace of a boutique hotel, the Townhouse motto is that “fancy doesn’t have to be boring.” From 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. you’ll find inventive cocktails—some even served in fish bowls— as well as lively music and sinful dishes that’ll make you happily forget any diet. We especially love this place for its daily drink specials and its all-inclusive brunch experience on Sundays.
