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.

The Pleasure of Beer

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.

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.
