This is a great place to experience Madrid’s outdoor eating with great Spanish favorites. Be sure to try the local Spanish beer Mahau. We visited while Spain was playing Portugal in the World Cup and it was exciting.
Lovely little square near the hotel we were staying, this plaza is busy, we dropped into Cerveceria Santa Barbara in the square, a tavern that's been serving happy customers since 1815 which gives you an idea how old this plaza is .

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
