Malasaña is one of Madrid’s hippest neighbourhoods and is home to lots of cool bars, restaurants and shops, as well as a thriving vintage scene that makes it a great place to look for some extra wardrobe additions. The neighbourhood’s main vintage shops are centred around Calle Velarde, so start there for an afternoon of browsing the racks.

Magpie Vintage

Vintage box with trinkets and jewelry

Magpie Vintage is a place to get lost in the past and find some treasures (its clothes are regularly lent out for film and television shoots). It was founded in 2008 and sells both men’s and women’s clothing from throughout the 20th century. With a huge range of clothing, handbags, jewellery and sunglasses, it is a shop made for the true magpies among us.


La Mona Checa

Walk into the shop and realise the entire ceiling is covered in a red and white circus tent that can’t be missed. La Mona Checa has a wide and eclectic range including clothes, accessories and even vintage cameras. It’s a great place to browse and enjoy the festive circus atmosphere.

Flamingos Vintage Kilo

Vintage clothing

Stepping away only slightly from Calle Valverde and onto the equally hip Calle Espíritu Santo is Flamingos Vintage Kilo. The shop has a novel way of pricing clothes: pay according to the weight of the purchases, €24 (£21/$26.7) per kilo, on average. Its the first of its kind in Madrid and specialises in clothes that are made in the USA, with everything from vintage jeans and leg warmers to leather jackets and Hawaiian shirts on the rails.

El Templo de Susu

Unlike many hipster vintage shops in the area, El Templo de Susu has a much more hard rock aesthetic, which the Harley Davidson parked in the entrance gives away immediately. Think ’60s and ’70s rock T-shirts, leather jackets and boots—a great stop for anyone who’s a rocker at heart.

Lakari Kala

A vintage furniture shop that also restores old pieces and the ideal destination for interior design buffs, Lakari Kala has a great range of furniture and home wares from throughout the 20th century. From lamps and vases to sofas, tables and chairs, it’s a great place to explore over half a century of interior style.
