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.

4) Tupperware

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.
