If you’ve been to Madrid or lived there, you will know that eating out in the summer is one of the great Madrid treats. You will find bars and restaurants across the city from where you can sit out and watch the world going by. Generally speaking, the Madrid terrazas open their doors in June and extend through the hot summer months to September. El Mundo‘s Metropoli magazine has a neat supplement which idetifies the best places to eat out ‘in the shade’ over the coming months. They offer their ‘ten novelty’ places to eat for 2006, the 50 best places (by barrio) and 15 places to eat on the outskirts of Madrid.
If you’re just looking for some terraza to have a beer or cool drink, try out the bars on the Castellana or on the Paseo del Pintor Rosales.
