From chic hotel terraces to casual warehouse hangouts, Seville offers excellent rooftop bars and iconic venues in exclusive locations with front-row access to the city’s most important landmarks and tourist attractions.
These places perfectly combine breathtaking city views with fantastic drinks and delicious food. In this article, I’ll give you a complete guide on the best rooftops in Seville, packed with all info you need to find the best suited for you.
As you might have heard, Sevillians are very extroverted, fun, and joyful, so you should expect fun events, live music, concerts, and amazing views over the iconic Sevillian skyline.
It’s time to elevate your experience in Seville and watch the best sunsets you will ever see in Southern Spain. Let’s go into them!
1. EME Terrace
📍Alemanes, 27, 41004 Seville
Historical memory and avant-garde design are the mixes of two concepts that were worked on when creating this hotel. So we already caught the vibe, right?
The renowned architect Juan Pedro Donaire restored 14 Sevillian houses to shape the different accommodation spaces, composed of 60 rooms in which the decoration is one of the strong points. But this is not just a simple hotel; it has the most beautiful rooftop in Seville, and I could even say one of the best terraces in Spain!
Only 15 meters separate the incredible terrace from the Cathedral of Seville, the largest Gothic temple in the world. That’s what makes it unique and so special.
Its deck is extraordinary, and that luxury is also paid for as it has slightly higher prices than other rooftops in Seville. But it pays off with high-quality service, delicious cocktails, tasty bites, and a chic lounge vibe.
The EME terrace is set over two levels, known for being a modern and trendy rooftop. It opens 365 days a year but is at its peak when good weather arrives in Seville. See when:

It becomes a meeting point for tourists and locals looking for a drink with the best views and music.
Suppose you want to have dinner before going to the rooftop for drinks. In that case, I recommend you go to its cafeteria on the first floor and its Italian restaurant of EME hotel, which has an outstanding gastronomic offer.
Overall, you will love the close-up views over La Giralda, complemented by the majestic panoramic view of the Seville skyline.
2. Maria Trifulca
📍Puente de Triana, Pl. del Altozano, 1, 41010 Seville
Another Sevillian restaurant and open terrace that guarantees a dream location and views is María Trifulca.
This spectacular location stands on the old Triana lighthouse. When you finish your dinner, it becomes a perfect place to have some drinks.
It is next to the Isabel II Bridge overlooking the Guadalquivir, Betis Street, and the entire Arenal neighborhood. The place is perfect for a “Spanish sobremesa” (extending your meal by chatting and drinking) or starting the evening with a few cocktails or wine.
The two terraces will take your breath away. The views are breathtaking from all perspectives. Calle Betis, the Cathedral with the Giralda, the bullring, and the Pelli Tower stand around the restaurant.
In the past, it was a passenger station and freight depot on the route between Seville and Sanlúcar de Barrameda, which was inaugurated in 1924.
Don’t worry if it’s raining or cold; the interior is also spectacular. You will feel like you are in a cave; the lower lounge conveys an intimate and quiet atmosphere.
3. Patio de la Alameda Terrace
📍P.º de las Delicias, 3, 41001 Sevilla
Located in the hotel with the same name, in the middle of Alameda de Hércules, the Patio de la Alameda terrace offers another view of the city’s ordinary rooftops.
