9 cocktail bars in Girona and the Costa Brava to enjoy the good weather
The good weather has arrived in Girona and the Costa Brava and, with it, the desire to get together under a starry sky while enjoying a drink on the terrace of a bar. We are more eager than ever to go out, to sit on the terrace of a bar, to feel the breeze as we savour a drink at sunset surrounded by the best company.
Here is a list of the 9 best bars with terraces in Girona and the Costa Brava so that you can enjoy a cocktail, a beer or whatever you like best, and all of them are very close to our local charming houses!
1. Ultonia Terrace (Girona)
In Girona we find this terrace, located at the top of the mythical and central Ultònia hotel. Specialized in signature cocktails and with unique views of the Cathedral and the city. An ideal place to have a quiet drink under the city sky both day and night.
2. Mas Sorrer (Gualta)

A classic on summer nights. Mas Sorrer is located in Gualta, in a masía in the lower Empordà surrounded by nature and sunflower fields. Its offer is very versatile: from concerts, yoga, open-air cinema, cocktails and even a dance area. It has become, for some years now, a place that never goes out of fashion.
3. Mooma (Palau-Sator)
A cider house in a unique and unbeatable location: in the heart of the Empordà, on the outskirts of Palau-Sator. It is a masía surrounded by apple trees where you can enjoy a glass of cider, fresh from the barrel or a cocktail in the garden. For cider lovers, Mooma is always an option to have in mind.
4. Mas Pi (Verges)
Another classic located on the Verges crossroads that brings dynamism and new offers to the area. Mas Pi is an eclectic pub-restaurant with travelling art exhibitions, where you can enjoy everything from an infusion during the day to a cocktail at night, while listening to live music. Also, if you're up for it, you can take part in one of the jams, where musicians can come out and play spontaneously.
5. La Bassa (Ventalló)
In Ventalló, between Torroella de Montgrí and Sant Pere Pescador, in a cool setting, ideal for the hottest summer months. Simple but charming, a place where you can enjoy a cool drink without rushing. It also has a restaurant with a terrace where you can have a drink. It is still unknown to many but worth a visit.
6. Roos (Empuriabrava)
Roos is a unique space on the beach of Empuriabrava created to enjoy both daytime and night-time plans. A privileged and surprising setting where you can spend unforgettable hours and teleport yourself to Ibiza. They have a suggestive cocktail menu, a real treat for the senses!
7. Els Jardins del Palau Macelli (Castelló d'Empúries)
They say it's a 17th-century palace in the heart of Castelló d'Empúries that exudes calm and serenity, and they're right. Its gardens extend beyond the walls, from where you can contemplate the basilica and, while sipping a glass of wine, with a little imagination, you can put yourself in the shoes of a knight or a troubadour.
8. Cala Banys (Lloret de Mar)
Located in the cove of the same name, between the beaches of Lloret and Fenals, this historic bar (which has been around since the 1960s) has a terrace overlooking the cove with sofas and a chill-out area. Unpretentious but with spectacular views over the sea and a retro feel that never goes out of fashion.
9. Banys Vells (Banyoles)
Another classic for us, which we have already mentioned. Located on a jetty on the Banyoles pond from where you can watch one of the best sunsets over the water while you soak in the pond with a drink in hand... A kind of beach bar without a beach, but very attractive!
Cheers! And enjoy the best bars with a terrace in Girona and the Costa Brava!
