Malasaña / Chueca, Madrid –
El Tigre is regularly packed with groups of club-goers who have turned the bar into their favorite pit stop for economical drinks and the complimentary plates of traditional tapas that come with them.
Patrons on a budget may want to overlook the moose heads on the walls and the dirty napkins that litter the floor, because this tapas bar serves up some delicious Spanish omelets at a price that can’t be beat.
It’s also worth the effort to squeeze through the crunch of boisterous guests clamoring for attention at the bar, as patrons are rewarded with their own oversized beer and heaping plate of tapas.
After sampling some Spanish staples including patatas bravas (fried potatoes topped with a spicy tomato sauce), croquetas (lightly breaded, fried fritters), ham, and tortillas, visitors will be ready to mingle with a jovial crowd of outgoing regulars, young professionals, and a good number of English-speaking students and travelers.
Located right in the heart of Malasaña off Gran Vía, El Tigre’s local wine, famous Spanish sidra (cider), and friendly crowds make it the perfect starting point for a long night in the neighborhood.
Students and young professionals, many English speakers, 20s.
A steady stream of cheesy American pop hits from the 80s and 90s.
Traditional tapas include tortillas españolas, chorizo, and patatas bravas.
Drinks €2–€6, includes tapas.
Anything goes, but not too dressy.
Any night is good for drinks and snacks. Stop by on the weekends on the way to the clubs.
