On Tapa the World! Eat. Drink. Madrid.
Our barrio, Chueca, lies in the sweet, savory heart of Madrid. Known for its open-minded ambiance, culinary excellence in Spanish cuisine, nightlife, outdoor terraces & boutiques, it's hard not to fall in love with. We will first wake up our appetites by means of a treasured Spanish tradition Madrileños have been savoring for years, "la hora del vermut," meaning the hour of vermouth. From free-flowing vermouth on tap to drool-worthy tapas at Madrid's most famous tapas bar. Next, a stroll through Puerta del Sol. Onto a typical Spanish bar where you could find grammy buying her week's worth of chorizo on the left, and on the right, young locals toasting to their football team and legs of ham lining the walls. We'll visit Plaza Mayor, a mouthwatering market & a rustic mesón for melt-in-your-mouth morsels. Pedro will then teach you the way to properly 'escansiar' Spanish natural cider and we'll end with a sweet lil surprise in La Latina to send you on your way! Other things to note Please notify us of any dietary requirements or allergies. The most of the tapas are not for vegetarians. If you're interested in having other drinks aside from those we will offer, ie. specialty cocktails, please bring cash (euros) or card!

The third stop is at Gran Peluqueria, where it's possible to see vintage tools and learn about the historic clients - the aforementioned Ramon y Cajal and those from the rest of Spain, who alighted off trains from Atocha and made themselves presentable before moving around the Spanish capital. The tour then stops off at La Báltica, and it will be possible to learn about the beautiful tiles on the storefront. Finally, the last stop is the Secret Kingdoms bookshop, where we will stop for wine and tapas. Here, I talk about one of the oldest bars in Madrid, its links to cinema, writers & bullfighters.
