This is the last adult cinema to ever close its doors in Spain, and rather than the image of a dark seedy place, Sala Equis is actually a stunning bar. With three floors each serving their own quirky purpose in they own unique style, this old repurposed cinema is one of the coolest places to have a drink with friends.

The remarkably tall ceilings covered in plants and neon signs are reminiscent of an old abandoned building, taken over by nature. The main floor has a bar and snack area where you can eat chocolate cakes, carrot cakes, vegan cakes and more. A very affordable menu is on offer during the day, and you can catch one of many indie or classics on their big screen as you enjoy your drink. This is really somewhere you should check out for yourself, for any movie buff, socialite or average Joe, this place will leave an impression on you for sure.

It’s not just the old reminders of the cinema that make Sala Equis so special, but the small things, like their movie parody posters that make you chuckle as you’re going from floor to floor, or the ticket gate that now serves beer. You can choose to have a drink downstairs, on a beach chair with everyone, or maybe upstairs where it’s smaller and more private.. oh yeah.. and covered in velvet, or pick a day to watch one of many classics. In any case, treat yourself to something exceptional and memorable, it just might become your favourite bar in town.
