My only experience with Areia is as a bar and not a restaurant.

This is a really fun place to go for drinks or pre-drinks. They tend to play louder music and it can be very busy after about 11pm so not an ideal spot if you want a more chilled atmosphere or to be able to easily have a conversation, but upbeat and a good spot pre-clubbing. The drinks menu is endless, with a combination of classic and new concotions to try, and the prices are pretty reasonable even for Madrid. It can be difficult to get a seat or even find standing space at peak times but apart from this it is a great and budget-friendly place to go.

Great ambience. Ive been there many times. The perfect place for a drink if you are in the area. I like it during the week, avoiding all the weekend crowd.

Areia was a favorite bar among my friends and I whilst living in Madrid. The decor is funky and unique, and the vibe definitely plays off of it. There was generally a young, international crowd here sipping cocktails and tables get snatched up quickly. Their signature cocktails were always strong and yummy with some sort of unique garnish to top it off. Also, the service was quite decent and the bar was prompt (which is not a common thing in Spain). If you are looking for post dinner cocktails at a bar that is on the fancier side, then I would totally recommend Areia. Not to mention Areia is located in the fashionable, gay friendly neighborhood of Chueca which is perfect for a night out of people watching and making friends.
