Madrid hipster neighbourhood: Malasaña

Aug 15, 2017 | Europe, Travel | 2 comments

If you’re here reading this blog, you probably like artsy, bohemian, hype areas just like me when you travel!

In case you’re going to Madrid this summer, make sure to not miss Malasaña district. If you can stay there it’s even better, the boutique hotels in the neighbourhood are simply a real life Pinterest show. The main transportation vehicles here are bikes, and it’s probably the neighbourhood I would live in if we ever consider Madrid.

From galleries to pop up stores, vintage clothing shops, vegan cafés, health stores (for your superfood stocks), book shops…. All the places we’ve been to, have a savvy mix between modern and vintage decor.

The day we went there, we had lunch at Slow Mex: Industrial decor and Mexican food! I wandered around vintage clothing shops, I bought sunglasses and a blouse from La Mona Checa, I love their gypsy circus decor! The other stores were great but a bit pricey. Then we had drinks at a the beautiful terrace in front of Toma Café, for a moment of people watching, and let me tell you it’s a heaven for street style photography. Also, I bet the best Sunday brunches happen in the area.

Malasaña has all the ingredients to have a laid back, fresh, resting afternoon at the end of your trip, far from the touristy and crowded plazas. You know… when your feet are swollen from all the walking and sight seeing 🙂

Before unwinding around a cup of latte art, make sure you visit Madrid’s staples:
