Wonderful staff, lovely events, friendly environment. Special shout out for staff members/volunteers Ash, Ines, and Scott! Particularly fun drinking games and a really fun bar crawl that is not to be missed.

Drinks were really cheap (a litre of beer for €4 I think!!) and the staff were good fun. Went on the pub crawl with Micka and Scott and would really recommend - really fun and lots of tequila. Stayed out until about 7am.
I came here not knowing anybody and scott and paulo made me feel like they were my lifelong friends. Scott was especially brilliant on the bar crawl and is very fun and happy

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
