Entertainment in downtown Madrid
Wining and dining in central Madrid
Because I stayed in a arranged and holiday Madrid holiday apartment in the heart of the Spanish main city throughout my business trip, I was able to explore the Puerta del Sol area, which is a preferred place for the tourists and the local people. The spot has a nice square where these days are organized different events including the New Year’s Eve. Here is also located the image of the city, which looks like a bear sculpture of bronze that goes up a strawberry shrub. I did several pictures of this statue, and also managed to capture the people of the square, that were having coffee, eating cakes or sandwiches or just resting and looking at the life going by.
My Madrid accommodation was additionally close to a number of the nicest dining places and night clubs in Madrid. It was hard for me to get used to the late dining hours here since the dining establishments were available for visitors after eight and at times also after nine o’clock. The dance clubs however were open until the morning of the following day. Some of the best night clubs I learned about were set along the Plaza de Santa Barbara where other than cafes and watering holes, one could find takeaway food restaurants. I read that the neighborhoods Moncloa and Arguelles are generally chosen by the College students and I did not went there. Instead I picked a bar in the Malasaca region, where I found several people from my home town and they took me with them to Pase de la Castellana where we visited an additional popular night club. Then I was so exhausted that I called it a night and headed towards my Madrid hotel were I went to bed. At the next morning I took a quick bath, enjoyed a hot cup of coffee and ordered a taxi to the airport as my business trip was over.
