Where to Drink + Dance in Madrid

bar

La Paracaidista - CLOSED

Madrid , Spain

The first concept store in Madrid combining an indie film theatre, art gallery, Cuban bar, rooftop terrace achingly cool clothes store. Technically its members only, but fear not as there’s no lengthy selection process; just jot down a few details and away you go. Work from top to bottom starting off with a craft cocktail in the rooftop green oasis with terrace views over the city, then saunter downstairs for a Cuba Libre in the Havana-style bar – cigar optional.

Address

Calle de la Palma, 10. 28004.

bar

Kikkikeller

Madrid , Spain

Furniture shop by day, speakeasy by night; Kikekeller is place to be and to be seen. With urban decor, mismatched wallpaper and quirky artwork lining the walls, this hotspot is the embodiment of young, Malasaña cool. Their cocktail menu is extensive, and any bar that serves up platters of freshly picked cherries instead of Bombay mix is definitely our friend.

bar

El Patio

Madrid , Spain

The Patio is the ideal spot for a post-work drink with friends; lounge on one of the brightly coloured chairs and share company with the coolest young Madrileños around. Be sure to order a sandwich from the menu specially created by Magasand, the magazine library/café that stocks emerging international publications. Cocktails are courtesy of a collaboration with El Viajero, La Latina’s favourite rooftop bar that has acquired a near-mythical status.

bar

The Passenger

Madrid , Spain

Decked out like a luxury train from a bygone era with dark wood, polished brass and “windows” (screens filled with flashing scenery beside wooden booths), The Passenger is a unique experience. A coffee bar by day and bar by night, the restaurant serves up masterful brews by Toma Café (the best coffee in the city and then switches to cocktails fuelled by jazz at night.
