First bar in Madrid to specialize in import beers. Unreal selection from Belgium. Great service. I wish I had found it sooner!!!! If you like craft beer, plan on spending a couple hours here.

So many of the reviews touch on the beer, on other items, but I had an interesting experience here for a different reason. Yes, beer selection was good. Yes, service was good. But the real surprise - after visiting 4 other cities in Spain, and many more reviewed and talked about Paella restaurants, this was the best Paella we had.... More

...had no idea about this place (or its Trip Advisor rating) but can see why it is so popular. (Really!) great beer selection, very casual and relaxed inside and fair prices. We were in the area to the see the Palacio after a Hop on/off bus tour. We didn't bother in the end, just enjoyed the beer. Bravo.

As a fan of Belgian beers, I was very excited to see the different beers they had in their window display. The place is small and from the outside, it looked like it was packed. We took a chance to find a couple seats at the bar but there was a free table instead. This was dinner time also and... More

Wasn't a pre planned visit, we were just walking past and fancied some tapas. Really friendly place with lots of beers to choose from. The food was delicious, would recommend the pork in chocolate sauce! Definitely check it out of you're passing

This place is fantastic. They have many kinds of beer from all over the world. I recomend the Trapist "Chimay". Also, try the Jamon table. Amazing!

Beer! ¡Mas cerveza! Tons of quality international craft beers. Draft & bottled. Spanish, Belgian, English, German, Dutch, Czech, Irish, Mexican. And if you're a gringo and just can't stand another moment without your Budweiser, American. Also Brooklyn Brewery & Anchor Steam (SF). Small tapas menu. TV showing top matches. Bar stool & table seating. Right off main drag Calle Mayor.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
