Malasaña is a neighborhood in the city centre of Madrid. It is known as the alternative place to go, but why? Because of its strategic location between Chueca (gay tradition) and Argüelles ( near the University area ). The streets of Malasaña started its history with the movement called the Movida Madrileña of the 70s and 80s. That days this place was full of rock and underground culture around the night of Madrid, right now you can find there hipsters and it is place to find new brands , designers and full of trends and stylish people.
We start our route with old fashioned bar and pubs as Palentino or Casa Camacho were you can find low cost drinks, never forget to get on "yayo"
Penta or the Via Lactea are locals of Malasaña with a large tradition that keep a little bit of what it was during the Movida Madrileña.
If you are looking for a new outfit or discover colorful clothing, your shops are Trakabarraka or Lady Cacahuete. Monkey Garden is a place with cool brands and emerging designers clothes.
