When in Madrid, where do the real Madrileños go? We asked our very own LUXE Madrid resident editor, Lou Stokes, to share her favourite hangouts of the moment. From brunch spots to bars, follow the sustainable style guru below:
This Hispanic-Uruguayan-inspired restaurant boasts a great ambience, rustic decor and trendy folks all around. Enjoy top-notch food and cocktails to the tunes of a DJ playing vinyls various nights a week.
Casa Jaguar Café Mercado San Fernando
The best coffee and food in the neighbourhood – I love their avocado toast, the relaxing surrounds and exceptional staff. Tip: Head to the terrace on a sunny winter’s day to have a coffee and watch the world go by.
A female shoe brand founded in 2014, Magro Cardona is without a doubt one of my fave places to hang out and buy incredible shoes. A fusion of tradition, sophistication and modernity, all shoes are made in Spain by artisans and designed by the dynamic duo, Irene Magro and Ana Cardona.
Barquillo Hot Yoga
My sanctuary in the heart of Madrid, Barquillo Hot Yoga is a stunning yoga studio offering all kinds of yoga – all day, every day. I love to take a hot yoga class and enjoy a tea in the peaceful and relaxing reception area afterwards.
Il Tavolo Verde
Take a trip back in time at this organic cafe and antique market. Besides delicious organic and sustainable food, you can also find one-off antiques, exquisite furniture and decor.
