Party Earth Sidrería La Creación Review

The Scene

The northern coast of Spain is famous for its love of sidra – a greenish-yellow apple cider served in large, wide-brimmed glasses – and La Creación, with its cool old-world feel and ideal location just off Plaza de Santa Ana...

The northern coast of Spain is famous for its love of sidra – a greenish-yellow apple cider served in large, wide-brimmed glasses – and La Creación, with its cool old-world feel and ideal location just off Plaza de Santa Ana, is the perfect setting in which to try some.

The bar’s black-and-white checkered floor contrasts nicely with the warm, earthy tones of the nostalgic murals of a bygone Madrid – but the patrons don’t really go for the décor. The youthful, cheery customers are much more interested in congregating at the bar or at the few tables in the narrow upstairs corridor, where they happily spend hours chatting and clinking glasses.

Although more expensive in Madrid than in Asturias or the Basque Country, sidra is still relatively cheap and low in alcohol – a good thing considering that, due to rapid oxidation that almost immediately changes the cider’s flavor, a bottle of sidra must be consumed fairly quickly once opened.

Patrons at La Creación shouldn’t be surprised, then, when they find five or six empties on the table at the end of the night!

Tip from Emma:

Every Spaniard knows that sidra must be poured as far away from the glass as possible in order to get the perfect flavor. Impress your friends by standing up, holding the glass low near your thighs, and pouring with the bottle held as high up as you dare. Be prepared to splash a bit on the floor – it’s all part of the fun!

Fun place to try Sidra
Jody P. Dec 11, 2012
I tried SIdra for the first time here at La Creacion. The bar itself is fun - it looks like it has been there forever and does not feel touristy. You get an idea of what Spain is like outside of the big cities (at least if you can ignore the bustle on the streets outside). I wasn't a big fan of sidra personally, but it is a traditional drink in the Basque Country of Spain and definitely worth trying. La Creacion is a great place to try it and it is also in a great location - right near Plaza del Sol. That means it is in close proximity to a ton of other fun places if you want to bar hop.
