  • Madrideños love to drink and be merry. Little glasses of beer, cocktails, coffee with brandy: you can find alcohol for sale practically everywhere in Madrid (seriously, some people even stand on street corners selling cans of beer, corner shops on every block sell alcohol, and fast food joints sell it too), but Madrid's bars are the best places in town to sit down with a drink in good company. There's no dearth of them either. From local watering holes to hip dives to high society affairs, bars in the Spanish capital are everywhere and they cater to all kinds of patrons and drinking habits. Won't you join them for a drink?

    A mythical place for its connections to the wild 1970s/1980s cultural movement in Madrid known as the Movida, La Vía Láctea today is a fun and funky Malasaña rock bar covered in old rock posters and popular with a young crowd. Beer is the drink of choice here, but they do have a few standard mixed drinks.

    If sipping a gin and tonic or a cosmopolitan in retro style is more your thing, then get thee to New York-style cocktail bar Guau for a night of classic spirits, cocktails, and conversation. It's also a quieter choice in the more rambunctious area of Santa Ana.

    Sésamo is the place to go to share a pitcher of sangría in Madrid's centre. Popular with a boisterous international crowd, the cave-like place has quotations on the walls and a piano - for the occasional live piano music.
