Madrid - Not so conventional

Although Barcelona is the #1 favourite, cosmopolitan Madrid is rediscovering her place in our hearts. And young Madrileños' enthusiasm is helping getting there.
From bespoke denim tailors to sewing workshops at small cafes on some of the most traditional areas of this welcoming city.
Madrid still has the feel of community, small neighbourhoods or "barrios" that receive visitors with arms wide open. 
There is a strong energy flowing, along with the willingness of making things differently.
New concept stores are emerging (see Federica & CoSpeed and Bacon and many other), new places to share cultural views are sprouting (don't miss La Realidad and their poetry sessions or The Passenger and their Lonche & Ponche nights).
Same city, fresh attitude, renewed character.
