LocoWeekend is always trying to recommend the most unique places to go to, and this, of course, includes the secret bars in Madrid. Being quite late to the game, Madrid doesn’t have as many secret bars as places like Barcelona, but it’s slowly getting there, and from the few that can be found, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable experience. We are starting this “secret bars in Madrid” weekly list with our favourite new bar in town: La Santoria.
Having only opened a mere 3 months ago, this place has already blown up. Within its first month, every newspaper and magazine visited them. You might think that the whole concept of the secret bars in Madrid might collapse after so much exposure, but this place has still maintained its exclusive and special feel.
Ran by two cocktail and hosting experts from Argentine, this bar is hidden behind a cosy, yet innocuous little wine bar with walls covered in peoples messages, drawings and signatures. Behind the black curtain, however, Is where the real experience begins. The best secret bar in Madrid is covered in religious effigies, neon lights and a collection of vintage furniture and decor that gives a vibe of an old relative’s house. This is all topped off by a fantastically expert and friendly service provided by the two owners.
You are presented by an amazing menu of cocktails, each based on emotion and feeling. We won’t go further into detail as this is a place you absolutely have to experience yourself! You’ll love it so much, you’ll come back with friends and family, or even a special date.
