What to do in Madrid
On the border of Chueca, lowering towards to Castellana, and after taking a Madrid tour on c/ Barquillo -the old music equipment shopping street- you´ll find two places we like: the new yorker Bar Tomate (c/ Fernando El Santo, 26) and the nearby Bristol Bar(Admirante 20).
The exhibitions in the closest Mapfre Foundation will be the perfect “Culture of Madrid” excuse to go. If it’s Sunday and you feel like a brunch, a favorite of Lapepa chic b&b is the Café Oliver (c/ Almirante, 12): good quality price ratio although crowded for its good atmosphere.
If you want to go shopping, and not necessarily in the expensive but chic area of Almirante, you will find very interesting shops in the vicinity of Argensola and Campoamor streets.
