Madrid Lounges Overview

Ryad Café - Café | Hookah Bar | Lounge in Madrid

Given the diversity of Madrid’s nightlife, it’s hardly a secret that lounges in Madrid have enough variety to suit anyone’s tastes. City denizens are known for staying out late, and since many don’t hit the clubs until well after midnight, Madrid lounges are where they often start the night.

Central Madrid is well known for its cueva bars (cave bars) – subterranean lounges with arched ceilings and dim lighting where Spaniards have gathered for centuries to share drinks and noisy conversation. One such Madrid lounge is Las Cuevas de Sésamo in Sol (El Centro), particularly famous for being one of the best places to savor the traditional fruity red wine concoction known as sangria.

But Sol isn’t only about cave drinking, as many swanky hotels in El Centro are home to great lounges, several of which sit prominently on the rooftops rather than buried beneath the street. De Las Letras Hotel and Restaurante is one such cool rooftop lounge, and definitely worth a visit, but not without venturing first to the equally chichi lounges in La Latina / Lavapiés or Nuevos Ministerios, or the amazing Ojalá lounge in Malasaña / Chueca that brings the beach to landlocked Madrid by covering its basement with several inches of sand.

It doesn’t matter where they find themselves, visitors and locals alike need not venture far before a Madrid lounge will unveil itself and show them how to chill out in true Spanish form.
