  • Performance of ‘The Lion King’

    Madrid is always in fashion thanks to its musicals. For example, The Lion King, on the Gran Vía, has been playing to full houses for years. Prefer an exhibition? Museums like the Prado, the Thyssen, and the Reina Sofía always have world-class exhibitions, and other cultural spaces, like Conde Duque, Matadero, or Casa Encendida, will surprise you with more off-beat events. If you are more interested in festivals, Madrid has plenty, especially in summer, such as Mad Cool, Mulafest, and Dcode. And if you want to enjoy sport, during the football season you could see the legendary Real Madrid-Barcelona match, or events like the EDP Rock’n’Roll Madrid Marathon.

  • San Antón market

    Nowadays it’s unheard of to go out for a drink in Madrid without dropping by some of its delightful new “gastromarkets”. Perhaps the best known is the charming and central San Miguel market, but there are many others, such as San Antón and San Ildefonso markets, or others with more delicatessen-type offerings, like Platea. And if you’re looking for other things apart from gastronomy, there are other types of markets which regularly assemble all sorts of creatively-designed objects and are becoming more and more popular. These include the amazing Motor Market, organised at the Railway Museum where, apart from shopping, you can take a look inside classic trains.

    One of the dishes of the Diverxo restaurant

    In Madrid you can allow yourself the luxury of sampling the creations of chefs like Ramón Freixa or David Muñoz and his DiverXO. Some of the latest to open Adunia de Manolo de la Osa’ Adunia restaurant, Dani García’s Bibo or the Puertalsol by Chicote tavern with unbeatable views. Although, if what your stomach is asking you for is a good hamburger, a venue in the Five Guys chain has also opened on the Gran Vía, which is said to make Obama’s favourite burgers.It’s also the in-thing to go looking for the best cocktail at night (at the mythical Museo Chicote on the Gran Vía, for instance), to go for brunch at the weekend or eat at foodtrucks like the MadrEAT.

  • Shopping on Calle Ortega y Gasset

    Shopping and Madrid go hand-in-hand. The Salamanca district has always been linked with luxury firms, Fuencarral with the avant garde and the Plaza Mayor with age-old shops. New shopping areas are also springing up, such as Triball (behind the Gran Vía), Chueca (increasingly renowned for shops with 100% organic products) or Lavapiés, an area known for its mixture of cultures.Neither should you be surprised to find home decoration stores, barber’s shops, etc. which at night turn into fashionable venues, or shops like that of designer Manolo Blahnik in Calle Serrano which isn’t readily apparent - it’s tucked away in a courtyard. Exclusivity at its purist!
