Nobody goes to bed in Madrid until they have killed the night. Appointments with a friend are habitually made for after midnight at the cafe.
Madrid. The city that really, REALLY, really (k, I'm not joking here), MADRID NEVER SLEEPS!
I've been to New York, I've done the whole New York Minute, people sleep there, the town goes to bed. Madrid, never. 24-7 there is always something going on, people out, things happening. FOR EXAMPLE, you can't even make a dinner reso until 9PM. *North Americans fall off their chair* (Normally, in Canada, you'd go for dinner around 6-7, 8 being extremely almost rudely late).
Any who. Madrid. I'll keep it short and sweet, but it has got to be one of my favourite cities. I would move there tomorrow. I have now been two times to Madrid and each time I have been enchanted by its beauty, architecture and, well of course, its restaurants.
This article is going to focus on... where to eat! / really just my three fav trendy Instagram spots in Madrid.
Okay here is where things get fun. I was so lucky to meet up with a fellow travel blogger and AMAZING HUMAN, Anna. She was my personal tour guide / new best friend and literally made the trip a great success. Here are some hidden gems she took me to. (THANK YOU ANNA)!
1. Feel like eating whilst your toes are in the sand? Say NO MORE!
Head on over to Malasaña (the COOLEST area in Madrid) and go basement of Ojalá.
(Great prices, awesome vibes, sand floor, need I say more?)
2. Feeling Fancy?
Head to the courtyard of the Ritz. You might break the bank a bit, but look at the beauty of this place! (P.S. They have high tea, I would highly recommend doing this!)
3. Vintage Vibes at Lolina Vintage!
This cute little café in Malasaña (BEST PLACE EVER), it perfect for an afternoon tea, happy hour or just a great place to sit down and read a book!. (Don't I look EXCITED!). #BloggerProbs.
