Malasana, Madrid

(4.1/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Unleash your inner hipster in this creative countercultural neighborhood. Malasana was at the center of Madrid’s punkish Movida movement after Franco’s death in 1975, and today hosts some of the city’s best alternative venues for shopping and socializing. Browse the vintage shops, sip coffee in a bohemian cafe, pop into an art gallery, or dance in a lively bar. The Plaza Dos de Mayo is a great spot to sit and watch the world go by. Arrange your visit to Malasana and discover more family-friendly attractions in Madrid using our Madrid vacation planner.

  • We came here to eat. There were lots of bars and restaurants but I did not think it had the same lively vibe of other areas such as nearby Chueca.  more »
  • Is attractive to walk from night, because this full of bars and people with good wave. It is worth making a getaway.
