After a long busy day walking around all the sightseeing points, ticking off sites on your to-see list of Madrid and enjoying the gastronomy, your body is probably asking for a rest in the busy agenda. Whether you need a coffee, a cocktail or simply a bottle of water, Terraza Cibeles Cocktail Bar on the sixth floor of the old Correos building (now known as Centro centro – Palacio Cibeles) will offer the possibility of refreshments with a spectacular view of Madrid. Its location is privileged, overlooking the grand Cibeles Square and surroundings.
Before sitting down at this trendy terrace, pay a visit to the top of the building for a superb view of Madrid roof tops, historic buildings and the mountains defining the pink and orange sunset-kissed sky. It is a 360º view of Madrid worth the two euro-entry fee. You will be able to appreciate Madrid´s architecture from above. Once your eyes have relaxed, your hair flown away with the wind and your camera taken all the postcard-like photographs, take the lift to the sixth floor to enjoy a chic cocktail. I tried the Kir Royal and the Mojito, both very tasty. The menu is a bit pricey for Madrid but worth it.
