The 4 places to hang out in Malasaña in Madrid
1) Bar Galleta
Bar Galleta has become the place to go to 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. With vintage and cosy interiors. Enjoy one of their homemade desserts.
2) Café Moderno
Café Moderno’s terrace attracts a cheerful crowd on summer days and nights. Close to Conde Duque, Moderno is one of the few big terraces that remains open in August. Mahou fans will be happy (the only beer brand) and their menu is pretty decent for snacks at lunchtime or in the evening.
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.
