My girlfriend and I found this cosy bar on a back street of Madrid. A great place to have a few drinks. The cocktails were great and the bar staff were lovely. Definitely worth a visit!

Stopped for drinks a couple of times when heading out for dinner. Great little bar, nice jazz music. Friendly patrons and bar tenders. Drinks were reasonable but not cheap.

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de
Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The
neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich
heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes
from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
