All Bars in Madrid

Outside the Picnic bar, Calle Minas, 1, Madrid

A comfortable relaxed bar with friendly staff. The top bar has a few tables and chairs next to the windows but is largely taken up by the bar. The decoration is a little kitsch but in a good way. For instance, the beer taps are pretty cool.

Outside the Taquería Mi Ciudad, Calle de las Fuentes, 11, Madrid

Inexpensive, crowded and very small. This tiny little taco bar is great for a quick bite and a beer. In general mexican food in spain is much more authentic then the texmex you'll find in other countries but this place is especially so.

Outside El Bonanno bar in La Latino, Plaza del Humilladero, 4, Madrid, Spain

Most of this small bar is taken up by the bar itself. This has the advantage of it always being easy to get a spot at the bar. Even if you don't there's a ledge going around the walls of the bar so there's always somewhere to put your beer.

The famous Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid

This is a traditional food market that has been renovated and converted into “culinary space”. The traditional stalls selling raw ingredients have been replaced by bars and selections of unique tapas.

Cheesy sign for La Tita Rivera Calle de Pérez Galdós, 4, Madrid, Spain

Don't be fooled by the cheesy sign outside. This is definitely not a German themed beer garden. It's a modern clean bar come restaurant. The best part is the terrace at the back. A wooden decked oasis in the heart of Madrid.

Outside Lolina Vintage Café, Calle del Espíritu Santo, 9, Madrid

Walking into Lolina feels like being transported to a 70s sitcom. The vintage style is laid on thick. The patterned wallpaper alone is worth the visit. I recommend going to the bar yourself to get a drink otherwise you’ll be waiting forever.

Sign oustide Cafe del Soul in Calle de Barcelona, 3, Madrid

Cafe del Soul seems to be a Gaudi inspired bar in Madrid, fitting as it’s on Calle de Barcelona. I say inspired by Gaudi but don’t expect too much, it is certainly no masterpiece of beauty. It has cave type seats and walls where there are very few straight lines.

Zombie Bar in Malasaña, Calle del Pez, 7, Madrid

This bar is something unique in an area more known for bars with vintage furniture. The place looks home made by a bunch of skaters. The bar is fashioned from chipboard and you can hang your coat on the hangers made from skateboard wheels.

Oustide La Inquilina, Calle Ave María, 39, Madrid

This is a great looking bar which is pretty large for Madrid especially in Lavapiés. There is a small street terrace and three rooms. The front main room is where the long wooden bar is situated.

Outside Bar Automático, Calle de Argumosa, 17, Madird

This is one of the better bars along the tree lined Calle de Argumosa which in itself is full of bars. Some would be put off by the smurf blue interior but with the cool paintings and Caribbean feel I rather like it.
