As I came to see my friend Viki to Madrid I instantly became impressed by city architecture, warm summer wind and charming people. Giving you few of my fav places in Madrid!
1. San Miguel Market
Smell of fruits, spices and wine is the great combination for start of your Madrid experience. From Spanish jamon y queso to champagne and macaroons, you’ll spend all your money on this delights.
2. Teatro Calderon
After we finished grocery shopping we opened a bottle of wine and start getting ready for the city tour. We started our city square looking upon famous theatre building that’s which is the only building in Madrid that owns a pair of hot legs. Looking upon sexy pair of legs I asked Viki what else was the case with Madrid is it fully filled with sexiness or this is a tease. Madrid is sexy as hell, she replied. And damn, was that true..
3. Gran Via
My favourite street in Madrid! I just love it so much. Huge white buildings, tons of fashion stores, restaurants and bars. This street is everything.
4. El Imparcial
The night was young and so were we, as we were getting to what became first on the list of our favourite places in Madrid – El Imparcial restaurant. Vibe of an old aristocratic apartment that is run by the most bohemian staff with amazing tattooed personalities. Packed with flowers in each corner making smell of gardenia infused through whole place. The food, drinks, environment and hospitality 10/10
5. Jardines del Retiro
The biggest park of Madrid. It was owned by Spanish monarchy until 19th century when it became public park. Jardines del Retiro is the most amazing park in Spain. Don’t forget to take a boat ride on the lake and btw. take a bottle of wine, it gets more fun.
6. Jardines de Sabatini and Royal Palace of Madrid
Needles to say… Honey, I’m home.
7. Cassette Club
Best techno club in Madrid. Get ready to be surrounded by chains and chokers. Get your S&M spirit out and about.
