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.
Denim-lovers need to visit The The Storage, a temple to vintage denim stocking everything from ’70s dungarees to original Levi’s from throughout the decades. It also stocks a wide range of accessories, from leather belts and bags to hats and scarves, displayed in vintage suitcases. There are new arrivals every week, so there’s always something new to discover.
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.
