-Macera- Workshop (San Mateo, 21)
After the great success they achievedin Barcelona, Macera decided to open a bar here in Madrid. The formula worked there and it sure looks like it’s working here too.

The idea behind Macera is that you can have a good glass, at a reasonable price and, in the centre of one of the best European Capitals. The interior design is simple and elegant. Very friendly staff who know their drinks are there to help you choose the best mix for the night. From Vodka, to Gin & Rum, your palette will enjoy this one. Price around 7€.
