Advised by a local. Our apartment just around the corner so we went to have drinks. Very nice plaza! Almost only locals and crowded at night. Very good atmosphere with lots and lots of bars so a must try when you are in the area.

Multi-story residential buildings decorated with
ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and
pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and
neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower
levels down every block, and here and there, there's a
