La Latina

If tapas, beer and mojitos sound like your thing, La Latina is the right neighbourhood for you. Bustling terrace bars and restaurants are Madrid tradition, and in La Latina tradition is paramount. Home to the legendary Casa Lucio, enjoy sumptuous local cuisine approved by Spanish royalty, American presidents and Hollywood A-listers. La Latina is your quintessential nightlife neighbourhood.

Gran Via

Right in the city centre, the Gran Via is a truly fascinating and thriving part of town to explore. As Madrid's answer to Broadway, this is the place to be if you want to catch a world-class performance. Musicals, ballet, comedy and flamenco are all playing at any one time somewhere in the Gran Via district.


Salamanca is a place of true beauty. Grand stone buildings, centuries old, line the streets. The architecture and design of the Renaissance is apparent everywhere you look. The stunning Plaza Mayor is a particular highlight of this area. The neighbourhood is also a vital part of Madrid's student culture. After dark, Salamanca comes alive with fun, frivolity and excitement.

Chueca and Malasana

The quaint but lively neighbourhoods of Chueca and Malasana are the places to be if you're after a bit of fun when the sun goes down. Plaza de Chueca is at the centre of barrio activity. Charming cafes and restaurants make for lovely spots to stop and enjoy the sun with a coffee in hand, while at night the bustling bars and clubs are the home of Madrid's LGBTI+ scene.

Barrio de las Letras

Barrio de las Letras is Madrid's spiritual home of culture and art. Many of Spain's greatest names in literature have lived along the streets of las Letras; the pavement stones of many pedestrian walkways are emblazoned with famous quotes from their hallowed and heralded works. Three of Madrid's greatest galleries and museums can also be found here, known locally as the Art Triangle.
