Learn about the history of this tasty cuisine over some of the most typical tapas dishes you will find all over the city and country as a whole.
As you continue your tapas adventure in Madrid, head to a typical beach bar of the south — known to as a “chiringuito” — where you’ll be introduced to a few fish dishes and learn a bit about sustainable fishing. Then, to help you digest some of the treats you've just tried, take a walk across the main square, then onwards to the oldest restaurant in the world, getting a history lesson from your local guide as you go.
Next, head to one of the most important old neighbourhoods in the city, La Latina, where you’ll visit a traditional “Copla” (heritage folk music) tavern. There, sample a seafood delicatessen recipe from the north of Spain, along with some organic wines from small family-operated wineries.
Depending on the day, you may also have the chance to try some tapas and wine while overlooking the sunset from a rooftop terrace. Head to the Huertas neighbourhood, where you’ll stop at Madrid’s most famed draught beer bar — the team there are experts the city’s craft beer scene!
Then, it’s back to the 18th century, as you finish your Madrid tour in a historical sherry bar — you’ll feel like time has stopped in this place that maintains the same atmosphere from 100 years ago.
Finish in Puerta del Sol, the central square of Madrid, where you can either go back to your hotel or continue the night along! If you want to keep going, you’re in the perfect spot to explore other neighbourhoods such as Chueca or Malasaña. Just ask your local guide and they’ll lead you to them!
