#About the Renewing Neighborhood in Madrid

Once, the Malasana neighborhood (Barrio de Malasaña) at the center of the Plaza 2 de Mayo square, was one of the older and crumbling places of Madrid. Malasana was already set to be destroyed. Young enthusiasts, together with the residents of the neighborhood, opposed the destruction and stopped it completely. In a wonderful civil movement, the neighborhood became one of the trendiest places in Madrid, to a popular residential area, and an area for outings for Madrid's young people.

This is called urban renewal, and this is what turned this tired and gloomy place to a hipster fortress and a real entertainment area, filled with pleasant restaurants and cafes, friendly to locals and tourists, optimistic and full of life.

Today, this is one of the most bohemian quarters in the city. The quarter is known for its cool rock and funk clubs. Each evening the Malasana clubs bring in many young people, that come in groups to the live performances and the parties.

The magical Malasana neighborhood, in north Madrid, is behind the luxury mall Gran Via, the must eat food temple, cultural and shopping centers of Madrid.

Many in Madrid call Malasana el Barrio de Universidad, for the student atmosphere here. Another name that sticks around is Chueca-Malasana, named for the nearby Chueca neighborhood. This is a neighborhood for the LGBTQ community of Madrid, with a liberal atmosphere, young and open. Many tend to see both of them as one urban place, the two strongest entertainment quarters in the Spanish capital.

#The Hours of Malasana

During the passing hours, Malasana goes through different stages and receives a different face.

Throughout the day you can walk along with the elders of the neighborhood, drink espresso in a designed cafe, and enjoy a good meal in restaraunt with a Spanish feel.

In the evenings you can sit at a local bar, or go to a cool alternative rock club, one of the many scattered around.

In the night hours Malasana changes its face. The club atmosphere in the night clubs and the bars become more vibrant, jumpy, and fun. You can see all the big names in the city of Madrid, beautiful, musicians and artists, everyone dancing, drinking, and having a good time.

#About the Gay Neighborhood of Madrid

The neighborhood of Chueca is the center of the gay community of Madrid. This neighborhood is in the center of Madrid, a few minutes walk from the Gran Via.

Today's Chueca is the happiest, open, chic and colorful area in the city, but until a few years ago it was a crime-ridden area in the city and a poor and disintegrating neighborhood. The miracle took place here, when the proud community discovered the neighborhood, which had a winning position.

Members of the gay and lesbian community saw Chueca's enormous potential and "dressed in it." They renovated houses there, opened shops and bars, and gradually turned it into a cool, hearty and action-packed area around the clock. So, Chueca quickly became the center of the nightlife and entertainment of the city.

Today it is a bustling area of ​​life not only at night. Along with excellent nightlife and clubs, this area of ​​the city is full of restaurants, bars and galleries.

#Shopping in Chueca

Many say that Chueca is the most fashionable neighborhood in Madrid. This is also evident from the great stores in it. Shopping here concentrates on Fuencarral Street which can be seen as the Soho of Madrid.

#About the Best Neighborhood for Tapas and Beers in Madrid

In the La Latine neighborhood (Barrio de La Latina), many (Madrileños) Madrid residents come to get a cold glass of beer, and delicious tapas dishes.

Imagine a quarter that is a sort of never-ending Spanish celebration, loud, happy, colorful, and you have La Latina Quarter. The scene is especially vibrant in the evenings and on weekends, mostly Sundays, from the early morning hours to the evening.

These hours of Sunday, are the same hours that the famous flea market, El Retro, opens. At the tapas bars with the excellent beers next to the market, Madrid locals spend their day resting, until the small hours of the night.

Most of the colorful entertainment happens between the two squares. The first is Plaza de la Paja, the main square of Madrid during the Middle Ages, and the second is Plaza de la Cebada, which is more like a street than a square.

So La Latina, the most crowded tapas bar area in Madrid, is a recommended place to go out. Many times it will end with local residents of Madrid, in the small hours of the night.
