Tapapiés, the multicultural tapas festival

By | 22 October, 2018 | 0 comments

Multiculturalism and gastronomy come together in one of the most highly awaited events in the popular Lavapiés district, just an 8-minute walk from our hostel Posada Huertas. Eighty-eight nationalities from five different continents will offer a wide range of culinary proposals which will most definitely impress all attendants.

For this edition of Tapapiés in 2018, the eighth in its history which will run from 18-28 October, different cuisines from around the world will be combined with traditional Spanish cuisine. All in all, approximately one-hundred bars and restaurants from Lavapiés and two dozen gourmet shops and establishments from the San Fernando and Antón Martín markets will take part in it.


You can try over 130 delicious tapas including gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options which you can find here. Among them we recommend the octopus trompe-l’œil which is offered by Alma Café Bar; the casarina tigelle from Bresca; the original Pac-Man from Como Vaca sin Cencerro and the Japanese-Cuban burger from Eucalipto.

The price is also to be liked because you can enjoy these delicious tapas for 1.50 euros. For an extra euro, you can add a bottle or glass of Estrella Damm beer.

Music and gastronomy

This festival isn’t just about gastronomy. Tapapiés also includes 66 performances from 33 different Spanish bands which combine musical genres such as flamenco, rock’n’roll, swing, jazz, soul, batucada and reggae. Also, the cultural programme is complete with street theatre and circus acts as well as special activities for children.

Tapapiés is also up to date with the latest trends and technologies which is why the festival has an innovative app for mobile devices which shows the event programme and allows you to vote for your three favourite tapas in a competition where you can win fantastic prizes. However, the audience won’t be choosing the three winners but rather a panel made up by prestigious hoteliers and food journalists.

Once again, Tapapiés will meet all your expectations since it comes with the best gastronomic, musical and cultural proposals with options for all tastes and ages.
