With good weather, the terraces are one of the most popular places for diners who are looking for the best in all of Zaragoza. Among the most successful are undoubtedly those that are in the shade and those that incorporate some mechanism that cools customers, such as those small water sprinklers that are placed in many establishments. In the Aragonese capital, there are plenty of terraces of all kinds, whether on the banks of the Ebro River, in historic locations, on top or even the most modern ones unknown to the vast majority of citizens.


Among the extensive pine forests of Parque Grande and on the banks of the Imperial Canal of Zaragoza is the Corazón Verde terrace. This restaurant not only offers cocktails and snacks , but you can also enjoy live music, perfect to liven up the hot summer nights of the Aragonese capital. Renowned artists have left their mark in this restaurant, such as Scarlet Rivera, Bob Dylan’s most historic violinist, or groups like Los reyes del Joropo.


With a very Parisian name, the Le Pastis terrace is located on the Zaragoza riverside promenade along with the iron bridge. In addition to enjoying unbeatable views of the city, in this small piece of Paris there is room for cocktails and current music that ranges from American folk to electronic music.

The Plata Cabaret opened its doors in 1920, being at that time a luxurious performance hall with a casino and restaurant.
