The Pleasure of Beer

By | 3 July, 2014 | 0 comments

Cerveza en MadridOne of Madrid’s strongest points is the love that each and every one of its waiters have for beer, as you can see in the dedication they show when pouring the cañas. In a normal caña, the visitor can find a sufficient source of pleasure but, if you would like to go deeper into the world of beer, there is a huge list of breweries with the best beers from around the world, whether it is on tap or in a bottle or even brewed by themselves.

Open in 2012, Fábrica Maravillas, in the heart of Malasaña (Calle Valverde, 29), is a good starting point. It is not common in Madrid to find beer made by the bar where you are drinking it but it does happen in this modern place owned by a Frenchman from Brittany who is a huge beer lover. It is an excellent chance to sample this ancient drink made at home, with different intensities, aromas and graduations that make it a highly stimulating experience.

High Terraces

Azotea circulo bellas artesTo the consolidated tradition of cañas (small beers) in the many and varied terraces in Madrid, there is a new fashion that has been added to it which is to do it a few dozen feet from the ground. This is how there are places that have emerged at different heights that they add the pleasure of enjoying a rooftop view of Madrid while you have a nice refreshing beer or a mojito.

At Tirso de Molina, on Calle Doctor Cortezo, 17, we find Casa de Granada, a regional bar, as the name indicates, that has recently renovated its facilities. Also worth checking out is Gaudeamus (Gau&Café), in the heart of Lavapiés, which you can go to through the library of the UNED (building of Escuelas Pías), on Calle Tribulete, 14.

Immersion in Wine

By | 3 June, 2014 | 0 comments

vino en madrid‘In vino veritatis’, they used to say in Latin. The truth lies in wine. Perhaps, though, it is true that pleasure in wine is greater if one knows all of its details, if one gets to enjoy its nuances, the type of grape, the flavours, the aromas… That is why there are many wine tasting schools emerging in Madrid that allow wine lovers to immerse themselves in this culture.

Without wanting to go too much into detail but rather to enjoy a new experience and touch base with the wine-tasting world, a good idea would be to join the daylong tastings offered by different institutions. One of them is La Fisna, on Calle Doctor Fourquet, which has wine tastings on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm.

Habsburg Madrid

Madrid de los AustriasIt receives its name from the dynasty that set the Spanish capital in Madrid back in 1561, with king Felipe II at the head. It was the Madrid known to those kings, although the area of the current district of Las Letras was not then included and today would correspond to the districts of Sol and Palacio, in other words, the central district.

It is the heart of Madrid, with Plaza Mayor as a reference point, but also the streets of Calle Mayor and Calle Arenal -precisely where our hotel is located- drive you to Plaza de Oriente going past picturesque spots that are well worth seeing.
