10 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 10 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. El Pati del Rabí
In Girona, in the heart of the historic centre, you will find this music bar on the ground floor of a typical stone building. At Pati del Rabí you can have a drink under the city sky. It is highly recommended to calmly consult the cocktail menu and enjoy the sound of the bells of the cathedral which, although you can't see them, will accompany you throughout the evening.
2. Mas Sorrer
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.
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. La Devesa de Tor
A classic of wich we have already spoken. Also located in the heart of the Empordà, in a country house with over four centuries of history. Every corner of this house has an exotic and sensual decoration that will transport you to another world, by candlelight. Be sure to try the cocktails created by the owners.
5. Mas Pi
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.
6. La Bassa
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.
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!
8. Els Jardins del Palau Macelli
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.
9. Cala Banys
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.
10. Banys Vells
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!
