With such a young and diverse community of expats, students, tourists and locals, Madrid has a great nightlife, but it can be so easy to get stuck in the central parts, always going to the same bars, that don’t necessarily represent what Madrid has to offer! This list’s purpose is to highlight some of the most quirky and great bars in Madrid 2020.

    1. The Bar You Can Play Free Arcade Games at.

If you’ve walked past the San Ildefonso Square, then you’ve seen Naïf’s terrace. What you might not have seen however is, in your opinion, what is most defining and memorable of this awesome bar. The first thing you’ll notice about the interior of Naïf is its old brick, vintage style, cover with discreet but impactful art, a perfect companion to the laid back vibes of the place. The staff are friendly, the food on the menu is fast, simple, but nice (order their colourful mini burgers for cool Insta pictures) and even their bathroom is a place people take pictures due to it’s colourful arty walls. Great place to check out this holiday weekend! 📸Naif
