On Calle Piamonte, 20, there is a place where you can do anything you went. All you have to do is call the owners of Le Cabrera and hope that they think is a good idea. This way, you can have your own clandestine flat for a private party, a birthday party or whatever you want to celebrate. What is so special about it? That it is a flat with 50s decoration, with waiters that bring you your whisky on the rocks wherever you are inside, if need be. Of course, you can’t just go there and knock on the door, you must book in advance. You can do it by calling +34 91 319 94 57. It’s called El Back.

Kikekeller decoration store has a secret: at night, it becomes a bar. It is not a bad idea to have a glass of wine or a cocktail while you walk around and examine the exclusive furniture pieces in the shop. Exclusive furniture for exclusive people. It is the ideal place to take someone if you want to make an impression on them. Knock on the door and go in at Corredera Baja de San Pablo, 17.

In May 1992, an underground rock and roll bar called El Palermo opened, a hidden place in the garage of a villa on Calle Palermo, 21, which has survived thanks to the word of mouth of people who go there and keep coming back. Live music, pool tables, darts… It is not the same since the smoking ban came in but it still preserves the spirit.

One of the best-kept secrets in the centre of Madrid is the Garden of Salvador Bachiller, on the eclectic Calle Montera, 37. It is located on the fourth floor, going through an exclusive fashion and decoration store and finally coming into an outdoor garden. Even in winter, this place is just as good because it has many heaters in place so you can keep warm. It is a small oasis in the middle of one of Madrid’s busiest streets. Make sure you try the meringue milkshake with walnuts.

However, it is no secret that we are one of the best value-for-money hotels in the centre of Madrid.
