Malasaña is the neighbourhood for the sophisticated, artistic people who are gentrified, enjoy going to cultural events rather than the parties in Sol. It is an area which attracts elegant artistic people from 30 yo and onwards.

Malasaña is in the center of Madrid, just north of Gran Vía, the famous avenue of Madrid center, south of the traditional Madrid neighbourhood of Chamberi, west of the gay and arty neighbourhood of Chueca. As a result, Malasana contains a mixture of hipness like in Chueca, however with the tranquilly like Chamberi.

In the 80s, famous Spanish cinema director Pedro Almodovar loved to hang out in Malasaña’s bars rehearsing movies, going to rock concerts and supporting all artistic initiatives. This was an artistic era in Madrid, just like Paris in May 1968.
