Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your predilections for bourbon and rye whiskey before they really know your name. Where respect and homage is paid to the foundation of classic cocktail culture. Where bartenders take pride in their craft. Where you can sit at...More

Very nice atmosphere in fun central Madrid neighborhood. Friendly staff that speak English. Very Good cocktails and premium liquors. 9--11 euro per drink but very high quality. Sophisticated bar with good crowd. Some tables but can get crowded. Fun and cool vibe. Overall highly recommend....More

Came here two days in a row! This is an old fashioned bar and the bartenders have extensive knowledge about making cocktails. Almost all of the cocktails are €9 each. No food here but grab a cocktail and watch the people walk by!

narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the
center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends
