Madrid may traditionally be a beer town, with Mahou beer being Madrileños’ drink of choice, but wine is increasingly stealing the stage, with wine bars popping up right and left. From a glass of cava to a glass of Rioja vintage, there is something for every taste at these top Madrid wine bars.
This super-cool bohemian wine bar features large street-fronting windows and retains a pleasant echo of its former life as a humble bodega. The fairly-priced wine list is extensive, and there are seasonal offerings as well. Order a mulled wine or a steaming ‘caldo,’ or broth, in winter, and in summer you can enjoy a refreshing granizado or glass of gazpacho.
Though ‘Tienda de Vinos’ is what the sign outside the bar says, this restaurant/bar is colloquially known as ‘El Comunista’ as a nod to its role as a leftist meeting spot during the Franco regime. A Madrid stalwart, the tasty and classic menu hasn’t changed in years, and the original owner’s great-grandchildren still work there.
