We were looking for a place for a nightcap and found this bassment bar. The barman was a bit grumpy but the music was worth it. Top class blues music on a Tuesday night. The crowd was a mixture of locals and visitors. The music didn't start until 11pm. We hadn't intended to stay long but made a night of... More

This is a great place for drinks with friends and listen to some great live music, it's very bluesy and adds to the vibe and theme of this bar very down to earth and funky. It's a smaller venue but this makes it so much more the experience once the bands start. Definitely have to check this place out

Ideally I would like to find some small venue with quality musical performances and an appreciative audience in every city I visit but it does not always happen. However, in Madrid La Coquette has an intimate space beneath brick vaulting, the right capacity to balance gig and drinks, and enough character and warmth to make it special. I will be... More

...this is the place for you. Small, busy basement bar for blues (and jazz). Tiny stage, appreciative audience and talented artists

Was in Madrid with a few friends, who like myself have a love of live music. We went to La Coquette on two nights. The atmosphere was fabulous, the setting is brilliant, and only surpassed by the awesome music ! If, as we say in Northern Ireland, you are looking for a "great nights craic" look no further !

La coquette is one of the most known jazz venues yn madrid. great atmosphere, free sunflower seeds and nice music. So far, a must... the problem with la coquette is their schedules and that they are not reliable anymore. They never open at the time they say, the 15 minutes break last almost an hour and many days they say... More

Stumbled across this place and decided to pop in. We arrived around 10pm, and just in time before it got very busy. Was a fantastic night and a real mixture of ages in the crowd, it made for a good night. Drinks on the expensive side but the music was free (basket handed round for you to add what you... More

My recomendation is to be there aroung 20:30 due to the place is small and you can stay without place to listen blues seated

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
