Theatre
“Musical: The Lion King. One of the best known shows in Madrid. An assembly of high quality and acclaim. Advisable to book tickets in advance, they are often depleted.”

Market
“Malasaña was and still is the prime example of a nightlife neighborhood, where very diverse restaurants started to appear and, then, vegan options were multiplied, which perfectly fit the open, rebellious, young mentality of the neighborhood. What a Vegan Hot Spot! It is a benchmark for Madrid’s trends, a mix of traditional and experimental, old and new. Thanks to this fusion, veganism has strongly settled in a neighborhood that already enjoyed being different and ground-breaking. A perfect combination.”

If you spend the summer in it, it will be a crime not to live at least one sunset on this roof. It will become one of your favorites!”

Night Club
“Great food, drinks, music, price and ambiance just a short walk away. With a privileged location just a few meters from Plaza Santa Ana and Las Cortes, this location takes over where the mythical Café del Prado left off, a very fashionable restaurant in Madrid in the nineteenth century for being a meeting place for great scholars of the likes of Don Santiago Ramón y Cajal and that disappeared in the 1940s. Opened on July 22, 2010, combines the elegance of the high ceilings and large windows overlooking the streets of Prado and León, with the vintage industrial style of Lamucca restaurants. Meeting place for people of culture and theater, Lamucca de Prado also regularly welcomes people from the neighborhood and well-informed tourists from the restaurants that should not be missed in Madrid.”
