places to visit in Madrid, by Chilean singer Javiera Mena

The addresses where Chilean singer and songwriter Javiera Mena enjoys the good life in Madrid


Great drinks

Calle Pozas, 7, 28004

“In Madrid, it’s common to have a favorite bar, with a family atmosphere. For me, it’s the case of Cazador, in the neighborhood of Malasaña. It’s the perfect place to have a beer or gin and tonic in a very special setting while enjoying some good music.”


Lively party

Calle Barceló, 11, 28004

“I was impressed by the music and lighting at the club Ochoymedio, in the historic neighborhood of Tribunal, where I’ve played many times. It has a great disco culture, organizing independent music shows and parties, with trap and reggaetón. It’s one of my favorite places to dance, featuring DJs like Alaska and Mario Baquerizo.”


Historic contrast

Calle Ferraz, 1, 28008

“Whenever I go to a different city, I look for its parks, and Templo de Debod – between Parque del Oeste and Campo del Moro – is very special for the contrast created by the Egyptian ruins in the middle of Madrid. In the afternoon, when it’s illuminated, it’s the ideal place to take a walk surrounded by trees or have a picnic with friends.”


Pop vegetarian

Calle de Guzmán el Bueno, 67, 28015

“I’m a vegetarian, and Cafetería HD, in the neighborhood of Chamberí, has great meat-free dishes. In addition, its retro pop décor is wonderful, the music is from the 1980s, and it also has movie screenings. Whenever I’m in Madrid, I go there every day.”
