The Scene

Tapas have dominated Madrid's gastronomic scene since before it became the capital in the sixteenth century, but La Musa has taken that tradition and run with it.

Tapas have dominated Madrid’s gastronomic scene since before it became the capital in the sixteenth century, but La Musa has taken that tradition and run with it. Part of a small population of restaurants seeking to reinvent age-old dishes, the venue fuses traditional Spanish tapas with international flavors.

Not surprisingly, the ambiance follows the same form as the food, juxtaposing a rustic wood interior with modern paintings and new-wave furniture. This whimsical environment is enhanced by the enormous pinwheels protruding from the polished white pillars, and by the flower-shaped stained glass lamps mounted on the bar.

The small room behind the main bar, which is a bit more low key in both décor and atmosphere, provides a private spot where conversation is kept to a murmur.

On weekdays, the restaurant packs in trendy, cosmopolitan Spaniards as well as savvy expats looking for an after-work snack, a few glasses of wine, and some engaging conversation, while the weekends at La Musa cater to groups who come to socialize and savor the future of Spanish cuisine.

Tip from Adriana:

This is a cool place to experience with a group, especially if you’re tired of the same tapas served at every cervecería. The walls are loaded with flyers and posters of upcoming music and cultural events, so keeping your ears and eyes open may lead to discovering something unique to do later on.

Something different
Jody P. Dec 11, 2012
I can't deny that I am a traditionalist when it comes to tapas, and La Musa doesn't do traditional tapas, but I love it anyway. It is not super highly priced but the food makes you think that you are in a really upscale restaurant. They have local cuisine and and ever-changing menu based on what fresh ingredients are available. The tapas are anything but traditional and are not only interesting and creative, but, most importantly, they are delicious. Even if you love traditional tapas like me, this is a great place to try more modern Spanish cuisine.
