In Spain Summer has well and truly arrived.
In the evening there´s nothing nicer that finding a cool outdoor terrace or beach bar to enjoy the fresh breeze after a long hot day.
Sipping on a freshly made Mojito in Spain is one of my treats every now and then.
Here are some places I been over past Summers which I have enjoyed in different places around Spain.
In Granada a great place for Mojitos and any other drink for that matter is Forum Copas. (open daily from 9pm til late)
This outdoor rooftop bar has fabulous views of the whole of Granada. Great for those pinky orange sunsets.
In town head to Ayre café & Mojitos on calle Duquesa (just by Plaza Trinidad) and ask for a fruity Strawberry Mojito. They also do other flavours too. Melon Mojitos, mango…
This is a small kooky bar which also offers delicious breakfasts too.
From the photo maybe this place doesn’t look very much. This place is only open at night.
The chairs and tables are set up in the Paseo Alameda Apodaca filled with lush exotic palms, plants and trees. The Atlantic Ocean is just 100 metres from the tables and provides a gentle evening breeze. Find out more about Cadiz on this link
Cordoba When we were in Cordoba it was Scorchio. I´ve visited in June and in August. If you can choose go from Sept to May!
After having some cold beers and tapas at the Bodegas Campos on my recent visit. The most appetising dessert was an icy Mojito Sorbet (non alcoholic)
If you actually want a mojito with alcohol I was recommended Sojo by the river by a local. (this is on my list for next time)
Last Summer I was completely surprised by Malaga. I didn’t expect the historic part of Malaga to have as many interesting places or the charm that it does.
Read more on my Malaga trip post. This Mojito below was at Cafe Negro opposite the Alcazaba on a hot Summer night.
Almeria My most favourite place to sip Mojitos is the Chiringuito de Diego on the beach at Aguadulce. I just adore this place.
You can actually sit on the beach with you feet in the sand if you really want too. It makes me feel that I´m far away in the Caribbean. Read more about Almeria on this post
Madrid. I have to include Areia chill out in the Chueca district. This great place has a large selection of cocktails and mojitos. It does get pretty busy but I had a great time there.
In Barcelona there are heaps of places to try. A couple I like are Tres Rosas & Copetin.
Tres Rosas is a small cosy bar just behind Correos building at the bottom of Via Laietana. I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere there.
Copetin is somewhere I remember from years back. (around 1999 probably) This lively bar in the Born district has been running for over 20 years and is a fun place to go.
