Travelled to Mercado Fuencarrel by Metro, but found only dusty workman, fly posted hoardings and a lottery seller who mistakenly directed us to a trendy food market where we had vino and fishy tapas. (They were great!)
Either we missed the boat on this place or something has happened since the last review. Calle de Fuencarral is one of the major pedestrian shopping streets in this part of Madrid. Full of clothing, shoe, leather and high end stores. But the Mercado de...More

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
