Book bars to Read, Write and More…

libro bar madridHaving a coffee in a coffee shop is not what it used to be. At least in the more hipster area of Madrid, where there are more and more spaces appearing where the coffee is the least important part. These places are filled with books, paintings, comic books and cultural activities such as reading, book clubs or book presentations. Let’s see some of the most prominent ones you can visit in the Spanish capital.

La Fugitiva is one of the most famous ones in the area of Antón Martín, especially for those looking for some peace and quiet where to enjoy their coffee or tea in (we recommend their Ayurveda or Pakistani tea and their homemade vegan cakes). There is good Wi-Fi connection there and plenty of plugs to charge your laptop in, and the owners do not mind if you stay there all afternoon without moving. It is located on Calle Santa Isabel, 7, and philosophical discussions, book clubs and even a chess club are some of the activities that take place inside. It also doesn’t close until midnight, so there is plenty of time for everything. If you need more information, just ask Clea, who is always ready to advise those who enter La Fugitiva.

Madrid, Melting Pot of Spain’s Gastronomies

gastronomia españaJust like that great theme park in Barcelona, Poble Espanyol, Madrid is also a melting pot of the different parts of Spain. Let’s follow that plurality through the different regional culinary schools that are located in the city.

A melting point of immigrants from other less rich regions, cuisines from far-away places like León flourished in Madrid. Close to Calle San Bernardo, on Calle Cruz Verde, 16, you can find El Boñar de León. Nobody should expect fine dining in a place that does not stand out for its decoration but rather for its generous, almost excessive, free rations that accompany the tapas. It is ideal for days that you do not feel like spending a lot of money and are not in the mood for subtleties. The cocido stew is immense in quantity and the cold cuts, traditional from León, are also an interesting choice. However, remember that this is not the kind of place that you would want to propose to your girlfriend, as it’s not the most refined place in the world.

Today We Eat… At The Museum

By | 4 August, 2014 | 0 comments

Cafe del Jardin MadridA museum is mostly its paintings, its masterpieces, but also its walls, its architecture, its design and also its cafes and restaurants. In fact, these are elements that are receiving more attention by the managers of said museums, since they see them as a way of attracting visitors. Generally speaking, you do not have to access the museum to enjoy these places filled with art.

One of the most charming ones is the cafe at the Museum of Romanticism, known as Café del Jardín. It is a place with a French touch, elegant, delicate and only spoiled slightly by music that does not generally match the peace that you can experience here. It is made up of a room and a garden that would have inspired romantic poets back in the day; smoking is not allowed and this guarantees that no impertinent cigarette butt ruins the beauty of this charming little corner, located in the heart of Madrid (Calle San Mateo, 13), which is also free to enter. We especially recommend its homemade cakes and its summer timetable is Tuesday to Saturday from 9.30am to 8.30pm and Sundays from 10am to 3pm.
