El Casco Viejo is a typical, traditional place for Madrilenos to drink and eat tapas. It has an "old" feel to it and was always crowded when I passed, in fact it was a bit of a squeeze getting in and up to the bar....More

Found this little bar by accident. If you are in Madrid you must visit here for a traditional feel to the city, the staff speak little english but are very nice. You order a drink and get free tapas!

Visited whilst on holiday for a lite snack. Informal tapa bar with a reasonable selection to choose from. Staff were friendly and the food served was good for the price although have had better. Cheap and cheerful.

This little tapas restaurant is not grand but it serves good food quickly and the service is friendly and efficient. Sit at the bar and tuck into some delightful seafood or meat dishes washed down with beer or good quality house wine.

Still this cerverceria remains it own style although the surroundings alters rapidly. Authentic people living their lives in Madrid and El Casco Viejo is a part of the live. A good spot to drink al good glas of beer/wine, taste lovely tapas at the bar...More

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
