Travel Guide: Madrid

We visited Madrid a little while ago and decided to post some tips and places to check out!

FIRST: Stay in SOL!! It is the best place spot to stay in Madrid. There is plenty of shopping, near the metro and walking distance from killer clubs and bars.

The best way to see a city is from high up:

We did a great double-decker bus tour! We highly suggest it for your first day so you can get a feel of the city's layout and whats out there. Here are some pics from up top!

Loved the pink!

Fell in love with these windows!

ME Hotel Rooftop Bar and Restaurant:

From the outside!

We had an amazing meal at the restaurant! We highly suggest the fruit martinis. They were made from such yummy fresh fruit. The food was so amazing as well with lots of choices. Many of us enjoyed some great pastas.

The girlies!
The Rooftop:
Since we ate dinner at the restaurant we were lucky enough to skip the line to get up to the rooftop and get free admission as well. The view was so picturesque and amazing! It was great to have a view of the city at night with all the lights. There are perfect spaces for just relaxing and enjoying your friends.

"The Penthouse is an ultra-chic rooftop bar owned by Rande Gerber, celeb nightlife entrepreneur and husband of Cindy Crawford. It’s located on the roof of Hotel ME Madrid Reina Victoria, in Plaza Santa Ana, and has a great view of central Madrid. The crowd is dressed to kill, the waitresses are smoking hot the drinks are pricey and the place is often frequented by Spanish celebrities. Best to get here for happy hour, because although it’s open till 3am, the line to get in is insane after midnight."

Teatro Kapital: 7 Story Club

If you want an amazing crazy club experience this is the club! It is 7 stories with different music and themes on each floor. The top floor also is on the terrace. Each floor has 2 bars and awesome dance floors. It was a great time if you want a wild night.

On a last note make sure to try paella!! It is a specialty of Spain and is very tasty :)

Madrid was a beautiful city and we highly suggest it to anyone. Everywhere we went you could feel the Spanish culture, everyone was very welcoming and there were plenty of awesome places to go out to!
