Madrid is one of the greatest places to be. I know that most people prefer Barcelona, and yes, it is a lovely city, but I’m a huge fan of Madrid. During our holidays we visited Madrid too and today I wanted to show you two wonderful terraces where you can have a drink, something to eat and listen to nice music during Madrid’s perfect and warm Summer evenings.
The first picture was taken in Parque de Atenas. This place is just so cool. The music is fantastic and the views are amazing: not only because the staff is gorgeous, but also because it is placed down below the Royal Palace at the bottom of the Campo del Moro. Perfect location.
The second place I wanted to show you is completely different. It is called El Espejo and it is romantic, charming and decadent. Placed in Paseo de Recoletos, in front of the magnificent Biblioteca Nacional de España, it is a lovely terrace with piano live music with the most amazing and funny mix of clients. Lovely old ladies, hipsters, wealthy turists, couples on their first dates, writers looking for inspiration… Since it is very close to the most important shopping areas of Madrid (Barrio de Salamanca for fancy posh shops and Salesas area for trendy original findings) it is the perfect place to rest after a nice shopping spree. Try their iced-lemon drink!
