by freyas_dad

Hi
I shall be staying in a hostal on C/Atocha, Hostal Barrera,in a week's time.
Can anyone recommend any good bars for tapas and cheap but good restaurants in the area? I don't speak good Spanish but enough to get by ordering food and drinks etc.
Thanks for your help

In Madrid there's a restaurants/jamonerias chain called 'Museo del Jamon', where could eating good spanish plates to share at very cheap prices. There are many establishments in all the city and one very near Atocha train station, but I suggest you the most beautiful one in Calle Mayor 7, not far from C/Atocha: ask a table in the salon at the second and last floor, is really charming! Menus are also in english language.
See their sites, only in spanish unfortunately:

There are many, many places for tapas. Take a foot route from the Plaza de Santa Ana (not too far from Atocha) to Plaza Mayor and environs. Look in the windows and see what is displayed at the counters, or see what's listed on chalkboards on the walls. You can just point to what you want and ask for a tapa. If you really like what you see ask for a racion and you will get more.

also, small beer is una caña. Bigger beer is just una cerveza or un doble.

As traveltom mentioned, there are many afternoon/ early evening tapas places around Plaza Santa Ana. In fact the Allemande (sp?) was one of Hemingway's hangouts. Figure about a 10-15 minute EZ walk from Atocha. Also just N of Santa Ana (walk straight N from the Hotel TRYP Reina Victoria) there are many reasonbly priced food and drink places. We liked c/ Barcelona and one street East of c / barcelona, plus many pubs over there. Karl

just get off your hostal and wander around to the streets named above. You will be spoiled by choice. Do enter any place you see full of locals (but be aware this will not happen until at least 9PM ;)) I'm not so familiar with this area as when I was living in Madrid is was not our favorite area to hang out (too touristy!) even some times we went to plaza Santa Ana and calle Cava Baja (many tapas places around these). The "museo del jamón" said above is very popular with tourists (including tourists from other areas of Spain) but not the kind of place locals use to go, IMHO is one of these "fake-typical" chains of eateries, but it may be convenient sometimes

Regarding you other question about churros, San Ginés, the most famous "chocolate con churros" place in town (and in Spain) is near near to Puerta del Sol, just off c/Arenal. There are other "churrerias" in town, but you should not miss this place!

"San Ginés" is there since 1894 ;o)

Built between 1617 and 1619.Its representative buildings are LA PANADERIA and LA CASA DE LA CARNICERIA
. In the center of the square there is the STATUE OF FELIPE III.
It is full of bars. Go there and drink a beer (cerveza).Dont forget to taste the famous tortilla.

Politically aware locals

by acemj

Two days before we arrived in Madrid on our trip in February of 2003, there were rallies all over Europe (and the world) in protest to war versus Iraq. It was an interesting time to be an American visiting Europe where the vast majority of the population was against war. I had a few conversations with locals about war, politics and other world events and was always treated with respect. This banner hanging from an apartment near Plaza de Oriente was a plea for peace and symbolized the opinion of the majority of the people I spoke with.

To do absolutely :'Museo Reina...

by mozart_WA

To do absolutely :'Museo Reina Sofia'(52,Santa Isabel Street)This museum gather lots of Modern Art paintings which the famous 'Guernica'picasso.
The French tourist guide don't speak of this usually.

Trendy shops

by IIGUANA about Fuencarral street

If you want to look trendy, if you want to look good, and you've got the time to shop, try visiting Fuencarral street in Chueca. This street has the best shops in town (Diesel, Levi's, Energy, Miss Sixty, etc), plus lots of local shops that have just the trendiest clothes, the best shoes and the best of the best in Madrid. Look out for shoes and clothes. They'll probably be cheaper than anywhere in Europe.

Theatre in Madrid

by Redang about Teatro en Madrid

It is possible that when in Madrid, you find the opportunity to enjoy that musical or play you missed once or you were looking for for ages. Maybe this is your last chance.

The web is in Spanish, but I bet it won't be too difficult to find the right play/musical.
