We offer hundreds of organised activities to Madrid stags. But if there are 5 things you definitely must try and do while you are here, try these:
It’s Spain’s maddest street.Especially if you are just out of Shoko or Joy or Kapital clubs. A sort of Oxford street but in Blade runner. You’ll find pretty much everything happening here, with all sorts of services on offer. The high buildings on either side of Gran Via attain an eery beauty and majesty at this time of the morning (but don’t get run over by a taxi…) – and bumping into a friend is always on the cards while buying Chinese food served on the street.
It’s a sure bet that at least one of these two roister-doisters will be kicking a ball about while you’re here. So, however much you profess to be a Barcelona fan, you can’t come here and not go. The Bernabeu Stadium in particular is well impressive, and the football on offer is not that bad at all….we can help you with tickets.
Now, this will not appear in the Michelin Guide or Lonely Planet for that matter. It’s maybe just us but we kind of approve of the diehard Madrileño traditionalists habit of supplementing their morning café con leche with a brandy or two (or..even better… a mix of brandy and anisette, known as a sol y sombra). Go for it! And have the churros or porras as well.
The most traditional patatas bravas are served near Plaza Santa Ana in tapas bar like Cafe Las Bravas. There is nothing fancy about them. They sum up Madrid at its best.
Unlike Barcelona Madrid has never benefited from a swollen media reputation and excessive marketing. So most people are blown away by the marvels of this city. Have a walk (or bar hop) around and see some of its mind-blowing sights: Plaza Mayor and Plaza de la Paja, El Palacio Real, El Templo de Debod, El Retiro
