Very nice atmosphere in fun central Madrid neighborhood. Friendly staff that speak English. Very Good cocktails and premium liquors. 9--11 euro per drink but very high quality. Sophisticated bar with good crowd. Some tables but can get crowded. Fun and cool vibe. Overall highly recommend....More

We came here twice. Once in the early afternoon (quiet) and once at night (busy).
There are only 4 tables (and a bar) upstairs with some more seating downstairs.
Once you've had a drink here ('Corpse Reviver' is recommended!) make sure you have some tapas...More

Thanks for your words, Williwsinoz
We agree with you, it's a great idea having a cocktail or two with us, then some tortilla at pez Tortilla.
Came here two days in a row! This is an old fashioned bar and the bartenders have extensive knowledge about making cocktails. Almost all of the cocktails are €9 each. No food here but grab a cocktail and watch the people walk by!

Thank you very much, Tamara.
Glad to read . your words, we try to focus on old fashioned cocktails, we love calling that "cocktails like they used to be"
Thank you for your visit
A whole list of standard cocktails with lower shelf liquor for 9 euros. For a bump up to 12 euros, you can get a decent drink. It's nothing special. I don't see why this place has such a high rating in Madrid. There is next...More

So sorry to read that, Johnny.
We cannot please everyone and you probably have your reasons to dislike the brands we use.
Just to explain to everybody: gins like Xoriguer or MG, vodka Finlandia, rums like Havana Club or Appleton, whiskeys like Buffalo Trace, Makers...More

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
