La Azotea de Benito
Gran Canaria-Las Palmas
May 11, 2018
Gran Canaria’s first true cocktail bar, La Azotea de Benito brings some of the best crafted cocktails around and provides them in a gorgeous rooftop setting in the center of Las Palmas.
Cocktails and fine views have long been paired together, but the rooftop view at La Azotea de Benito Cocktail Bar is a pour above the rest. With surrounding mountains and the architectural gem that is Las Palmas Cathedral all within your sight, it makes for a stunning backdrop for what will inevitably be a special night. On the terrace itself, the decor is heavy on shades of white, ideal for those warm Canary Island nights. The views and the thoughts of fresh island air in your hair will bring you to La Azotea de Benito Cocktail Bar, but it’s the cocktails that will keep you around. The first bar to make a true mixology effort on the island, the menu is dotted with unique interpretations with a Canary Island twist. Their slogan is “cooking drinks”, and they bring the same calculation and dedication that the most highly skilled chefs would bring to a food menu.
The Flaming Bitter’s – gin, berries, orange syrup, and flambéed chocolate – is a fine example of their craftsmanship along with the Mary-Rose – a tastebud tickling mix of gin, spicy mango, lime juice, honey, and rosemary.
