By | 20 June, 2013 | 0 comments

Madrid is a city where people love their tapas and spending time with friends sitting in a friendly and festive atmosphere. But of course, not any bar will do. Although, most bars will offer you good quality and a nice choice of beverages and tapas, there are a few that have that extra, that little thing you cannot put your finger on, but that makes the difference between just another evening out and that special evening that you will remember for a long time.

So, as soon as you drop your bags at Posada de Huertas, make sure you checkout the whereabouts of the grandfather, otherwise known as ‘El Abuelo‘ or ‘La Casa del Abuelo’. This bar situated in calle Victoria 12, is a family bar. Here you will be impressed by the amount of prawns one can eat and the different ways there are to prepare them. Of course, all of this well accompanied by nice Spanish wine.

La Ardosa in calle Colon, 13, is like walking into the past of Spain, with its walls covered in shelves with hundreds of bottles, La Ardosa is a tribute to the history of Spain. Its tapas are delicious, you will enjoy many different drinks and of course pretty pictures to take with your digital camera and email your friends back home.

If you like potatoes, then Las Bravas is for you, this bar serves, mainly, this very typical Spanish tapa the patata brava. This patata brava or brave potato is preapres with a spicy sauce, hence the “brave” which refers more to the braveness of the person eating it than the potato itself. There are other dishes, of course, just as delicious. Won’t you leave room to come and try some?

But, really, just take to the streets, walk about and pop in and out of bars, you will discover lots of new bars.
