Nice place for events with different halls and rooms with different sizes and characteristics for having musical events,conferences and workshops. We had lunch at a beautiful terrace, but it was extremely hot there. It is 20 minutes walk from Sol subway station.
It has all to spend a relaxing afternoon. You can enjoy some exhibition, stop by the shop or chill at the terrace on the top floor. Terrace has a bar and it's full of plants. Good views. Quite ambience
Amazing view of the city from there. I went there only few minutes because it was very windy and cold. But it deserves a visit, absolutely. I'll come back in summer just to better enjoy the view of Madrid.

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighbourhood.
