The 5 best places to hang out in Malasaña in Madrid
1) El Perro y la Galleta
The Malasaña location of El Perro y la Galleta, with its cosy vintage interior, has become the place to be from breakfast till after dinner drinks. Located on the trendy Corredera Baja de San Pablo, it is the perfect place for a break while exploring the neighbourhood. Enjoy one of their homemade desserts.
2) Café de Ruiz
Reminiscent of a Viennese-style literary cafe, this place takes its coffee seriously. Toma Café helped create one of the best places to enjoy breakfast, have a vermut and a snack, or simply enjoy a good cup of coffee.

3) Salón Corazón
The interior is rather traditional, somewhere in between a tavern and an English pub. The place has an electric ambiance with a young and fashionable crowd. This is the place to start the evening and get into the mood for a Malasaña night out.
The decoration includes TVs, Nancy’s dressing table, Naranjito ceramics, Lava Lamps and Star Trek dolls. Tupperware is the pop temple of Malasaña. When it first opened 10 years ago, it was considered freaky. Nowadays it is a meeting point for pop-rock, free-spirited minds.
5) La Colmada
Born from a love of classic Madrid bars and small neighbourhood shops, La Colmada is the perfect spot for an after-work drink in Malasaña. We love the bright blue and green interior and the fact that you can buy some wine, salami and cheese to take home.
