Areia is one of the best places to go out in Madrid, actually I am not really eager to share it because it gets busier and it is more complicated to find a spot on one of the couches or beds on which you can lay down as if you were is an authentic Jaima.
The decoration is warm, with an exotic and relaxing style, chill out music with an ideal fade light to go with the cocktails and teas you can get. You can also try what they have to eat, I recommend the salad, even though you cannot leave without trying the cocktails and teas, really, they are worth their price.
Located in the same place as the original Estrella Galicia factory, it has lost a lot of its charm for me because it used to have a garden terrace where you could sample beer outdoors, and now it's a huge place with very high ceilings, and a lot of noise and bustle. However, people seem to like it and it's always crowded.
Vía Láctea is one of Madrid’s nightlife most legendary places. It’s been open since 1979 and it was the place where big names of the show and film industry met in the 80’s, like Almodóvar for example.
When it opened, it was the first of its kind in Madrid, and it became the most alternative business in the city at that time. A lot of people waited in line in order to get in.
It’s quite big on the inside, with two floors and a peculiar decoration, its walls covered with posters and signs.
I personally love it. It was one of the first places I went to when I started to go out at night. It’s a place where you can sit calmly to drink something, play pool and dance.
Casa Anselma is a classic for flamenco and also for a night-out in Seville. Some say it's too touristy, and it is true, others say it’s very authentic, and that is also true. The truth is that inside anyone from the flamenco lover from Seville to the tourist looking for fun and local flavour, as well as business people and politicians are gathered together here...
Casa Anselma has become so popular that it one of those essential places. Like it or not, you should make a little visit if you go to Seville. Why? Perhaps for its decoration, antique, classic, Seville and very flamenco: with its lanterns, hand fans, its paintings of Andalusian women and posters of bulls that do not give any breathing space to its pink walls, with their rociera (People who go to the pilgrimage of the Virgen del Rocio in Huelva, Spain) chairs in a circle, around what is not in itself a stage, but part of the premises, that anyone can jump on and dance.
For their live music, in which a large group participate and whet your appetite during the wait for Anselma to come out to sing and delight her audience with interpretations of flamenco classics, ballads or even current songs with a flamenco flavour. To have a drink next to Anselma, as unique a character as they come.
Anselma welcomes you at the door of the locale, she sits you down and before you know it you have a drink in hand, "one has to pay the bills." To hear ‘La Salve Rociera’, the song that always ends the soiree, the only light from candles at the altar of the Virgin who presides over the party and the night.
This place is in the tallest part of the capital of Huelva. It has the story of African countries since their entrance with a door brought from the same continent with centuries of history. You can see the foot of the capital. The bridge gives access to its shores and one of the most lovely sunsets ever seen. Mandala is a historic place to see.
This was the most British and most lively stop on our gin and tonic route. We’re at a place that you can go to on a Friday at 11:30 PM to start the night with the best-tasting drinks. That’s what I did and that’s what I recommend you do.
The environment was totally British, I don’t know any better way to describe it. It has since become one of my favorite bars in all of Madrid, and not for the elevated prices. I love this place for the enjoyable feeling you have being there with a (really great) drink in your hand.
We drank two gin and tonics; each was extremely good. One was The Duke and the other Sipsmith (my favorite). This place is also famous for its brunch, we went at 11:30 PM and, as I said, the atmosphere was lively with a perfect fusion between Americans, Brits, Spaniards and the rest of the world.
: You immediately notice those places which aren’t chasing the latest trends, but rather seem to have professionalism and quality built into their DNA. Del Diego is one of these places and has spent the last 22 years serving the best cocktails in Madrid. Don’t expect one of those trendy, ubiquitous flavored gin and tonics with a cute straw. What’s important here are the precise measurements necessary to make a perfect-tasting, classic cocktail. Under Don Diego’s recommendations, I ordered a Broker’s Premium London Gin (11 euros) and it was a marvelous choice. After my years of gin-drinking experience, I’m convinced that many cocktail bars give you low-quality spirits (known locally as garrafón) at a top-shelf price. But in Del Diego, you can rest assured that the gin is top-quality (the lack of a hangover is proof). Although the bar is quite small and, for my tastes, is too-brightly lit, it does have something which makes it special. I’m already planning my next night there!
This is a small beach town which retains its unspoilt nature and is almost untouched. It has very calm and clear waters. There is not a large tourism business here, so it is very clean and quiet - a place where you can relax and enjoy the sun and sea. There aren't many services available here so do not forget to bring anything that you might need.
Incredible views and lovely food! Highly recommended to come here in the summer and drink on the terrace while watching the sunset. Well worth getting up close to the cliff top and seeing the whole Barrika Beach. For me, it's one of the most beautiful things in Biscay.
Apart from being a beach bar/restaurant where you'll actually eat well, at night a lot of nice people come here and it makes a great atmosphere with good music and of course, some spectacular sunsets. For people who don't like environments with a lot of people, it's advisable not to go in August. It's better to go in June or July.
I love this place. Its nice to sit here with a nice cocktail before we head back to our apartment Casa Chareb opposite. The children love to play as we have lunch. It's a very laid back Hippie atmosphere.
