Gymage. Photo Source: columnazero
Best for: Those in need of a happy hour recovery drink (or three) after an exhausting gym session.
Often overlooked, the Gymage is an excellent perk and a treat for the members of the same named gym. Luckily, you don’t need to be a gym member to enjoy this trendy terrace with all white furniture (but of course, taking care of your health when being this restaurant’s frequent visitor is a plus). Its attractive design, tasty food and divine cocktails are a perfect choice for spending time with your friends. We highly advise you to book a table before your arrival to avoid disappointment and long lines. Did we mention this terrace has two small pools open to the public? Not a bad way to survive the hot summers of Madrid!

Best for: Hats. Just kidding! Grab a couple of your friends and have a casual caña or two!
This funky bar is located on the top floor of the same named hostel. It’s often unknown to newcomers and tourists and we can’t blame you – who would have thought that a centrally located hostel could be home to a hip rooftop bar with amazing views of the city? The Hat’s slogan seems to be “sleeping, eating & drinking,” combining everyone’s favorite activities into a single, beautifully designed building – you’ll feel right at home. Don’t forget to try the delicious tinto de verano!
