All the street has nice places where to have a drink and a tapa or a proper meal, but I prefer the first and keep moving from one to the next one. The area is where Spaniards go in the evenings and there is a good vibe.

Full the whole street with bars and Mesones where you can take typical spanish food and tapas. Prices may be high.

Indeed, this is maybe the most typical place in Madrid to walk from bars to bars and have tapas and pinxos, and you have a lot of choice! But beware, sometimes it's a little bit pricy, mainly because there are more and more tourists in this area.

Cava Baja is a street that is filled with bars and restaurants, where one can have very good tapas and enjoy the atmosphere of the old places that have very Spanish decoration, many with decorative tiles.

Lots and lots of Tapas bars and great value for money. Go to the one where you see the locals are hanging out for a truly authentic spanish night out.

I absolutely adore coming down to this street on Sunday afternoons after stopping by the Rastro! It's always buzzing with life, so not the place for somebody who doesn't do well with crowds, as being squished into quaint tapas bars is part of the thrill!! It's just so... SPANISH! Personal recommendation? Txakolina! Definitely my favorite tapas bar on the street,... More

Great street in La Latina. Perfect for a night out with friends and eating some traditional spanish tapas accompanied by nice cocktails. Would definitely consider this the perfect place to encounter locals and live the typical madrileno night-life (that is before people head to the clubs around 2am).
