What to do in Madrid
This is the contemporary version of la taberna La Dichosa. Here you can take creative tapas and fine wines after having enjoyed shopping in an area of small very chic boutiques. Bodegas el Maño(c/ La Palma 67) or La Palmera, its front neighbor, also keep the taste of the ancient, anyhow decadent, local Madrid bars, now full of alternative people.
If you like tigres (breaded mussels), El Maño is the best Madrid restaurant to go. After that you´ll be ready to have a drink in the Café la Palma or the Café de las Comendadoras, the lively square with the same name. The cultural center of the district is the headquarters of the Conde Duque. Be sure to check out the new Madrid museum Museo ABC de dibujo e ilustración designed by architect Salaberry and recently renewed by the well-known architects Aranguren and Gallegos (c/Amaniel 29 – 31).
