There is nothing that I like more, when in Madrid, then to sit outside one of the many bars in the Latina district. Buzzing, friendly and a very attractive part of town. My favourite? Plaza del Humilladero.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

The street is lined with restaurants. They range from fancy to casual. They all serve different types of tapas so it literally is your choice. They all seemed pretty good.
