Malasaña is both traditional and alternative. If you enjoy being out and going for drinks, this is the neighborhood for you. By day, the barrio is rather quiet with lots of charming boutiques and restaurants, while at night it transforms into a nightlife hub with an impressive amount of bars and music venues. The style of the neighborhood is defined by traditional 19th century buildings with painted facades, with the Plaza del 2 de Mayo at its core. The Movida Madrileña in the 1980’s thrived here and the creative spirit lives on with Malasaña being home to many of the city’s up-and-coming new businesses along streets such as Corredera de San Pablo and Calle Pez.
Puerta del Sol is one of Madrid’s biggest plazas and a major hub for city life both day and night. It also marks the exact geographical center of Madrid, known as Kilómetro Cero, and is a common meeting place. To the east is the iconic Plaza Mayor, and finally the Palacio Real, or Royal Palace, which stands on the grounds of the original palace from the 9th century along with a tiny citadel called al-Mudayna. To the east of Sol is known as Huertas or "El Barrio de las Letras"(the literary neighborhood). It has a long intellectual history, with many of the great madrileño writers of the Siglo de Oro once residing there, such as Lope de Vega, Quevedo, and the most famous of them all, Miguel de Cervantes Savedra. The Plaza de Santa Ana is one of the most emblematic spots in the neighborhood. It is a pedestrian paradise with limited traffic access, especially visiting the unique shops and the traditional tapas bars and party spots along Calle Huertas, with numerous bars luring potential patrons from all sides, while the side streets off of Huertas are more calm. The neighborhood is great for people who want to be in the center of touristic Madrid, near museums (with the Paseo de Prado just a few steps away), great restaurants and nightlife.
Chueca is a very lively neighborhood and well known for its gay friendliness. It is a big neighborhood attracting all ages and all types. Therefore, stores are also ranging from cheap toexclusive. Some people call Chueca the “SoHo” of Madrid with its New York-ish feel, some beautiful bright colored facades, and the many iron balconies. Plaza de Chueca is the center of activity, with a lot of people enjoying the terraces when weather allows for it, and in Mercado de San Antón just behind Plaza de Chueca, you can enjoy a variety of traditional tapas as well as sushi, Greek, and Italian dishes. Calle Fuencarral runs through the neighborhood and a majority of the stores are open on Sundays (something that is often hard to come by in Madrid!).
