TupperWare is not only one of the best bars in Malasaña, but it is also one of the most exciting things to do overall in the neighborhood. The crazy kitsch decor, Star Wars photos, murals, lights and different music choices spice things up and chase boredom away at an exhilarating rate. One night they might play funky jazz while the next there might be dance or house music.

Similar in style to TupperWare, La Vía Láctea is another bar with quirky decor that is hard to imitate anywhere else; the result of years and years of gathering music posters from the 1980s and putting them on the walls. They serve great beer at even better prices (three euros) and they also have decent cocktails. The music played here is usually indie, Brit pop, electronica or rock, attracting a diverse audience from all backgrounds and age groups.

This is the first Mezcaleria in Spain, and in fact in Europe; there are three others in Mexico managed by the same company. Mezcal is a traditional Mexican alcoholic drink that is obtained from the distillation of the maguey plant. La Mezcaleria is a great place to try a shot of mezcal for the first time, and visitors who find it too strong can always wash it down with one of their other delicious drinks.
