All Bars in 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.
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.
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 The traditional stalls selling raw ingredients have been replaced by bars and selections of unique tapas.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One of the old traditional bars in Madrid originally part of a chain of bars that was founded in 1892. Bodega de la Arosa was one of the first bars in Madrid to serve foreign beers such as Guinness. In fact for some unknown reason they actually serve the lagers in the same way as Guinness.
