Los mejores cócteles de Madrid

coctel madridThere are many traditional cocktails bars in the Spanish capital, such as Cock, Del Diego or Chicote, but on this occasion we will focus on others that are just as good but still something of a secret.

One of them is 1862 Dry Bar, which opened in 2012 on the picturesque street of Calle del Pez, in Malasaña. It was created to fight against the trend of offering cocktails that make it hard to decipher which spirit it contains due to so much decoration. It is a return to the grassroots and it includes original proposals such as a different cocktail for each hour of the day.

Kona Lei is a different type of cocktail bar and it can be considered the only tiki bar in the city, in other words, an exotic bar with Polynesian decorations and primitive elements. The owner of this bar is a huge fan of this type of culture and he prepares his own cocktails with fresh fruit. it is a kind of bar that enjoyed considerable hype in Madrid in the 70s, and there are still a few survivors from that time, such as Bora Bora, on Calle Ventura Rodríguez. There, they still serve spectacular cocktails in coconuts, pineapples, long straws and sparklers. Kona Lei is located on Calle Hernán Cortés, also in Malasaña, in an old aparthotel.

O’ Clock is another of the places that cocktail lovers keep going to, due to the crazy things that they get up to there. Their gazpacho cocktail or the ox tail cocktail are just some of the drinks that you can order here. Its decoration is deliberately vintage, more like a 20th-century English pub, and it is well worth a visit thanks to its original proposals, although some might miss a more modern and light atmosphere. O’Clock is located on Calle Juan Bravo, 25.

We finish this cocktail route at Charly’s, whose main character is the bartender, Carlos Moreno. Those who have had a drink there can vouch for the fact that he takes five whole minutes to prepare the classic Old Fashioned cocktail.
