The ultimate Madrid tapas experience
The ultimate Madrid tapas experience

You’ll join one of our local Madrid hosts to enjoy what is obviously the best part of the day - the part where you do tapas (it isn’t something you go for, it’s something you do). The question isn’t if you do it (since the answer is always yes), it’s where to go.

You’re in luck since your host can’t wait to share with you some of their favorite tapas places. You know, the ones that are more secret than anything you’d find in a guidebook. All you need to do is let us know your vibe, and we’ll do the rest.

Do you see yourself in a sleek bar in upmarket Salamanca, an old-school vermut bar in down-to-earth, humble and diverse Lavapiés, a quirky tapas bar in hip(ster) Malasaña or a market like Mercado de San Anton, which has three floors of gastro bliss, aka tiny bars where you can sample pinchos (tapas held together with a small stick)?

Would you like to drink an ice-cold caña (the local unit of beer), sip Spanish vermouth or try a regional wine? Do you want to feast on garlicky grilled prawns, the finest slivers of Iberian ham, deep-fried croquetas or a more global take on traditional tapas?

You see, the choice is dizzying, so having a local to share the experience with will be like having a fairy godmother by your side. Flit between three or four bars for a varied experience or settle in at one you like the sound of; we just wish we could join you!

    • Explore the city and soak up the culinary culture and history as you embark upon the ultimate tapas adventure
    • Discover Madrid's oldest taverns and modern hip hangouts - there’s a dizzying choice of neighborhoods renowned for their tapas, so let us know what your vibe is
    • Bar hop between a few bars or even neighborhoods, or settle in at one that suits your vibe perfectly and let your host share with you their recommendations
    • Sample 5 Spanish tapas and enjoy two beers, glasses of wine, or soft drinks
