Cafes Tips (30)

Cafes: Circulo de Bellas Artes Cafe

Not a nightlife but an %evening tip. This classical cafe is a good place to have a coffee in company of people from the arts world. Is located in the building of the cultural association "Circulo de Bellas Artes".

Besides the company, the cafe is beautifully decorated and has huge windows to the Alcala street.
In summer they set a cozy terrace outside.

Entry through the Circulo de Bellas Artes. You have to pay 1 euro to go into the building. That will allow you to enter the cafe, as well as seeing the many exhibitions shown in the building.

Pryce: Café-Bar con buena gente

Pryce is a pleasant café. With Cuban proprietorship, it is bright, modern and simple, with a good vibe feeling that all those who pass through the doors are welcome in.

With lighting that mimic natural daylight, the ambience is easily enjoyable by day, night and through all seasons (especially in cold winter months); a welcome contrast to other madrid bars which tend to be very dark indeed or so bright you catch a suntan indoors!

Late evenings show a more relaxed dimming of the lights with candles :)

Food and drink recommendations:

desayuno - breakfast:

café con churros 2,30€
mediterranéo: café y tostada con tomate y aceite de oliva - coffee and tumaca (toast with tomate and olive oil - delicious!)


a good range of coffees and teas...

zumos - juices

some fantastic freshly made juices, which must be tried!
zumo habanero (de mango y limón) and lemon 3,50€
zumo sergi (naranja, plátano, piña), banana, pineapple
and others, to include frutas de temporado - seasonal fruits

cocteles - cocktails here are worth checking out too!

tostas - open topped toasted sandwiches
...especially salmón 4,00€

*On a budget tip:* one point worth noting, is the small price increase if you choose to eat/drink outside en terraza or arrive at night (after 21h00).

Dress Code As you are :)

Nänai: A different spot to grab a bite or listen to music

I first went to Nänai because I was invited to a concert in it. I didn't really know what sort of place it would be, but I must say I was pleasently surprised! I don't know if I should call it a cafe or a restaurant. As far as I know it's not open until 19:00 (7 p.m. ). And in the menu they have various choices, such as things one would have for dinner, but also snacks & cakes, milkshakes & very nice tea. The deco inside is quite unusual, but very interesting! Also they have concerts (I think all Sundays) by different songwriters... they are all acoustic, and the stage is quite small, but it gives the concerts a very nice and cozy feel!
If you go there I recommend the carrot cake, it was delicious!

Cafe Manuela: 1920's Cafe

For night and day, Cafe Manuela is a wonderful bar to have a specialty coffee or coctail. The decoration still transports you to a the 1920s. Its the perfect place to philosophise with your friends. It is in the neighborhood of Malasana near Plaza Dos de Mayo. My favorite time to go is a Saturday or Sunday lazy afternoon but its also popular at night too. There is a big selection of board games too. (they even have Trivial Pursuit in English.) I think they do poetry readings and the like on some weeknights.

Cafe Del Principe: Hanging with the Locals

Great drinking spot. We would get a round of drinks and it would only cost 6EUR. Chris got the locals to quote Triumph... "For me to poop on!"

I found that just "happening" into Bars made them great - especially if you got to meet other people. We met lots of great people and it made places that would have been just okay, or good - GREAT!

Cafes: Free time and entertainments

Inhabitants of Madrid are having fun all nights long during the weekend. On the Saturday night, people who are ready for having fun are gathering in cafes. Than everyone go to bars, restaurants and after that to discotheques and nightclubs. There are problems with parking and streets are full of cars on nighttime. If you decided to have not so active night you have to choose cafes – tablao where are flamenco shows or visit Madrid comic opera sarsuela.
