At first glance it appears to be an Irish bar that is trying too hard, a closer look reveals that the dust is real and it’s not an Irish bar at all. It’s a historic bar from 1918 that hasn’t changed in all these years.

The bar itself is beautifully fashioned from zinc and encompasses a sink into the bar itself. It divides the front and back bars.

The ceiling in the front bar has an original fresco. It is standing room only and is usually very busy as you can drink vermouth (which they serve on tap) and have a view out onto Chueca’s main square.

If you want to have a seat or even go to the loo you have to head to the back bar. Not as easy as you would think. Although both the back and front are attended by the same staff, to get to the back bar you have to actually go outside and re-enter on calle San Gregorio. The back of the bar has wooden tables and is usually much less busy.

This is a newly refurbished market that was built on the success of the Mercado de San Miguel. It differs from the more famous Mercado de San Miguel because it is a new building with a clean and trendy touch as opposed to the traditional market in the city centre.

There is a terrace bar at the top which is surprisingly not too expensive considering the clientele and the area. On the second floor there are many stalls serving tapas of all types. Again the prices are not as high as you would have thought from the look of the place.
