The Best Places to Try Gin and Tonic in Madrid

Picture of Jessica Jones
Updated: 22 June 2017
Madrid has had a craze for gin and tonics (or gin-tonics as the locals call them) for a few years now, and the trend shows no sign of slowing down. Typically served in a giant, round glass, it is a great drink to order if you want to blend in with the locals and feel like a true Madrileño. Here are some of the best places to sample a gin and tonic in the Spanish capital.

Gin Club

As the name suggests, this is the place to come for all things gin. Opened in 2006, it was one of the places responsible for kicking off Madrid’s love affair with gin, offering over 40 varieties. Its bar staff lovingly prepare each drink adding different garnishes depending on the brand and flavour. Located just off the bustling Gran Vía, it’s a great place to stop off on your night out in central Madrid.

One of Madrid’s most famous cocktail bars, it offers a beautifully prepared gin & tonic. Fernando del Diego is a master of the drink, preferring a traditional pairing of Schweppes tonic with Plymouth or Broker’s gin. It’s a family affair with Fernando’s sons both working in the bar too. This glamorous haunt is the ideal place to enjoy a late-night cocktail while exploring Madrid’s bar scene.

Spain’s oldest cocktail bar retains an air of bygone glamour that saw Hollywood stars like Ava Gardener and Frank Sinatra rub shoulders with some of the most famous bullfighters of the day. Its art deco look and cosy booths are ideal for a romantic evening and its location – on Gran Vía – is right in the heart of some of the capital’s best nightlife.

Macera

Cocktail Bar, Bar, Spanish, $$$
Save to wishlist

This place, in the trendy, gay neighbourhood of Chueca, makes all of its own spirits using natural ingredients and specialises in craft cocktails. The spirits sit proudly in clear bottles behind the bar and make for perhaps one of Madrid’s most truly hand-crafted G&Ts. Its gin is marinated with red berries, apple, citrus fruits, cinnamon and liquorice for an unforgettable taste.

Lolina Vintage Café

Bar, Spanish, $$$
Save to wishlist

One of Malasaña’s coolest bars, stepping into Lolina’s is like walking into an eccentric great aunty’s house. Furniture comes straight from the ’60s and ’70s, featuring fringed lamps, ancient old televisions and battered old sofas. All this makes for a brilliant atmosphere in which to sample a G&T. Its menu features 10 gins, all served with different garnishes to match their flavour.
