I read about this place online and liked the sound of it. The website offered a chance to book for a 10pm show but we decided to just go for it. We turned up in plenty of time and left after 11 pm disappointed and...More

Touristic location, but not a touristic place. It is kind of shabby (some people may call it authentic...). Food is bar food and nothing special. Service is nice/people are friendly. It was empty of tourists and of locals. Avoid, unless in a big group of...More

This was very authentic and great prices for a city bar! The staff did not speak much English but it was very authentic. We went quite early, before we went for dinner so we just got a few drinks and we were probably the only...More

We had a great time. Very friendly bar staff and what appeared to be some of the locals just playing their guitars and mandolins all night. Wonderful atmosphere.

Got there and there was one tuno and the Barman. We asked about whether there was anything going on or not. Apart from a super smug and conceited air in the response, they just didn't answer truthfully. They said "anything can happen" just to later...More

Great old cavernous place between plaza mayor and la Latina. Personal touch by staff, if you can get past the loud American Airlines staff.

Stopped in on a Thursday evening while strolling with my husband for a quick drink... The men were playing their guitars at the front table and just having a great time!! The music was great and the beer was cold, delicious and very reasonable!!

Great atmosphere, great tapas, reasonable prices, efficient staff. Definitely worth a visit! Live guitar at weekends but this weekend we were lucky enough to go at the same time as a group of chaps on their annual uni reunion. Fun and fab music and singing!

The food is typical tapas: croquettes, sliced ham, regional cheeses, etc. On weekends there is live guitar music, and on weekdays, guitar performers and students hang out in the evening, and may decide to play impromptu. Located in a very neat cellar with brick archways...More

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
