The best winter terraces in Madrid (such as Pipa & Co.)
Because terracism or terracing should never end. Eating and drinking outdoors (or almost free) should be a fundamental gastronomic right and in Madrid it is possible in places like these. We like a cane too much in the sun (also, the weather in Madrid allows us to enjoy the occasional sunny winter morning). We need covered terraces and patios but with natural light to feel that summer never left. In addition, dear smokers, in many of these places also allow you to give vice.
The garden of Salvador Bachiller
The possibility of eating brunch every day of the week turned this green space into madness from Madrid overnight. Now, in addition, they have prepared their last plant so that happiness does not end even in winter.
The Encarna Bistró Andaluz
Yes, we are faced with a patio covered with the delicacy of the French bistros and the southern tapas gastronomy; this is the Bistró Andaluz La Encarna, which has the best of Cádiz in Paris. That is to say, the combination of the lifestyle of the south of Spain, the way to enjoy the table, to share the food or a glass of wine, and, above all, to have a good time; with the warm and cozy decoration of the French bistro. (Calle Recaredo, 2, Monday to Saturday from 1pm to 4pm, 8:30 pm to 11:30 pm and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm Sunday evening: Closed)
Mexico and Spain coexist in Comala… all year. Its terrace of 30m2 glazed and acclimated for any moment is one of the best places to discover the most exquisite cuisine there through, for example, the Jornadas del Ibérico al Maíz that have been created for the winter season (until the 14th February), with dishes such as corn cream with fried torreznos and kikos powder; or the pozole of tender corn and pork ribs with its garnish.
Patio Magnum (Hotel Villa Magna)
One of the best hotels in Madrid hides a corner for winter: its Patio Magnum, where you can enjoy the cocktails of the Magnum Bar.
Kion & Sui
Stuck with his cousin-brother Inari, Kion & Sui opened this summer in La Moraleja to show us the delights of the Chifa cuisine, one of the first fusion cuisines in the world created in Peru by Cantonese immigrants. And like Inari, this restaurant was born with a beautiful terrace where you can (and should) be all year round.
The courtyard of the snoop
In its premises in the Barrio de Salamanca, the Patio del Fisgón is perfectly acclimatized for any time of the year, full of natural light, with abundant vegetation and a fireplace that gives warmth to eat with tranaquilidad their pizzetas or their meats.
A little bit of Ibiza in Madrid. All year. It is what they promise in 90 Degrees, a restaurant in the Retiro area that from Thursday to Saturday after dinner prolongs the time of the drinks with music sessions.
Duck & Sushi
It is, in reality, a semitrail, a space completely open to the outside in summer by the large window and that in winter when it closes you still feel at street level for its luminosity. A perfect place to enjoy its high Asian cuisine.
Ramón Freixa (Unique Hotel)
The private and secret garden of Ramón Freixa has a small covered space for the enjoyment of the two Michelin stars of this chef to last all year.
The terrace of the Queen
The cold arrives and the blankets and heaters appear in La terraza de la Reina in the Chueca neighborhood of Madrid. Open all year and all day, from breakfast to drinks at dawn. And you are always warm.
In this Lebanese La Moraleja (a neighborhood full of winter terraces such as Inari or El Oso), in addition to a good hummus and crispy falafel have a cozy patio prepared for the cold with small chimneys.
Pipe & Co
Weekend brunch on a terrace ALL YEAR ROUND. Although open all day, Pipa & Co’s market cuisine has become stronger in those late breakfasts or early weekend meals that can be enjoyed in the lounge, but also on its heated terrace for cold and heat.
Arzábal Reina Sofía Museum
The traditional tavern concept created by Álvaro Castellanos and Iván Morales enjoyed outdoors. On the terrace that opened last year there are several areas: chill out for when the cold does not tighten, glazed area for somewhat cooler days and a completely closed pavilion with fireplace for the cold, cold. In all of them, you can order some of their dishes from the menu they share in their three Arzábal. But, also, here, there is a cocktail bar and the possibility of having brunch every day of the year in the Petit lunch.
Oscar’s terrace (Hotel Room Mate Óscar)
One of the busiest penthouses in the Madrid summer is, also, since last year a privileged place in winter. Surrounded by glass roofs and walls and with heating, the roof of the Hotel Room Mate Oscar is still the place to be when the cold arrives to enjoy the 360 degree views over Madrid.
The warmth of the interior of La Pagoda is also transferred to its terrace open all year. Eva Chen,restaurant manager, has taken care of both the oriental menu with winks here, and a decoration with modern and relaxed style.
More than 80 years contemplate this restaurant that began being La Estrecha until its extension. At their premises in Príncipe de Vergara they have an acclimatized terrace thanks to a radiant floor that makes winter meals more pleasant ( although for dinner they only open it from March to November ).
Los Gallos Tavern
For lunch, dinner or an aperitif in the colder months, the alley of Puigcerdá was one of the pioneers in the coolest terrace. Los Gallos took a step further and acclimatized the roof where they eat their eggs with whitebait and peppers in any season. Its terrace at street level, has umbrellas and heaters, which can not stand the frosty nights of Madrid, but maybe a sunny Sunday at noon.
Hotel VP Jardín de Recoletos
The spacious courtyard of the Hotel VP Jardín de Recoletos, very close to El Retiro, has become the terrace of its Mediterranean restaurant. An acclimatized terrace to open and enjoy all year round, and in which smokers, yes, are welcome.
Market of San Ildefonso
In the last (pen) of open food markets in Madrid, besides offering 18 different food stalls (pizza, arepas, tacos, preserves…), they have two terraces, two patios of the building itself, one lower, another high , both half-covered for a happy coexistence between chilly and smokers.
Be it winter or summer, the interior patio of Saporem is still the main attraction of this restaurant in the middle of Chueca, which invites you to enjoy snacks and relaxed meals.
The last Asian restaurant to reach the area of Cuzco and Santiago Bernabéu is this, in addition to offering a traditional lacquered duck, has a heated terrace for the whole year where you can enjoy their hot dishes or sushi at its right temperature.
In Doña Tecla they have already installed the haima under which they can eat, drink and dance. With candles, heaters and sofas. As if the beach and the heat were installed in Madrid.
