Looking to enjoy the beautiful September nights? I have been slowly working my way through the Madrid Terraces. The Atenas Terrace (http://www.terrazaatenas.com) is not on a rooftop but hidden in a park, still giving you a bit of a break from the city.
Calle Segovia s/n
Parque Atenas, frente a la Riviera
The terrace is open from 11:00 in the morning till 2:30am, so it is the perfect place to stop and grab lunch, tapas, or a cocktail with friends. Cute decoration with pools of water that you can soak your feet in. For seating there are high tables, low tables and a kind of bleacher area (I highly recommend you don’t wear short, tight skirts as I saw several ladies struggling to be comfortable in the bleacher area). We did not have a reservation and were still able to get a table, seems to be a more transient crowd coming and going throughout the night.
Enjoy it while the nights permit – kick back and listen to the D.J. and have a gin & tonic! Maybe I will see you there!
