The Scene

Situated on the top floor of an old building is Casa Granada, a former apartment converted into a laid-back bar where a diverse clientele gathers for drinks, tapas, and a pleasant view of Madrid.

Situated on the top floor of an old building is Casa Granada, a former apartment converted into a laid-back bar where a diverse clientele gathers for drinks, tapas, and a pleasant view of Madrid.

Once patrons locate the side street and the discreet sign next to the door of this unassuming residential building, they need only ring the bell and wait for one of the waiters to buzz them in.

A quick elevator ride to the sixth floor gives way to a narrow passage cluttered with crates of empty wine bottles and embellished with a mosaic of the Alhambra – the final outpost of the Moors and a stunning, castle-like structure in the city of Granada from which the bar takes its name.

The bar area, just inside the small but comfortable main room, is usually alive with bustling waiters shouting orders into the kitchen and chatty customers talking about sports and life while sipping tinto verano (red wine mixed with sweetened fizzy water).

Wide windows provide a view of Madrid and natural lighting for the simple Andalusian décor, comprised of a few white-clothed tables and glass china cabinets displaying Spanish memorabilia.

The most coveted space at Casa Granada, however, is the narrow, wraparound terrace where friends and couples crowd around iron tables to engage in lively discussions. Since this balcony faces west, it makes for a perfect perch from which to enjoy a pitcher of sangria while watching the sun set over Casa Granada and the entire city of Madrid.

Tip from Emma:

The tables on the terrace are usually full, so if you want to enjoy the sunset, you’ll have to show up early. If there’s no space, just ask one of the waiters to put you on the list and have a few drinks at the bar while you wait.

Average rating:
Tapas bar with rooftop views of La Latina and Lavapies!
Shylean J. Nov 17, 2012
In the slightly off beat area of Tirso de Molina, Casa de Granada is a gem in the rough. One of the few rooftop bars in Madrid, it offers beautiful views of the red rooftops in La Latina and Lavapies (especially stunning at sunset!) Make sure to get there a little before sunset because outdoor seating will fill up and from the inside you cannot see much. Great for drinks, but not so good for tapas. The quality of the tapas is just average (along with its price range), but its name being Casa de Granada, it serves the Andalucian beer "Alhambra 1925", which is very tasty! A quick note: the entrance to this rooftop bar is not very regular. You buzz the sixth floor of a normal apartement building and a waiter upstairs lets you in. The buliding is kind of run down and old, so you feel like you're kind of going into a crack den. You get into a tiny elevator to go up to the sixth floor where the entrance to the bar is located. This element of surprise is an excellent way to impress people that you know the cool "underground"side of Madrid.
