Madrid Fiesta: Saturday Night in Huerta

Saturday Night in Huerta is part of The Adios Puerto Rico, Hola España Trip Report. Read TPOL in Madrid: Why A Second Residency?

What do you do when you finally leave the cozy Madrid neighborhood of Chamberí? First, you go to a great restaurant. I went to Taberna El Rincon Madrid for spectacular tenderloin (see Espectacular Carne, Callos, Y Vino).

Full, but not feeling fat, it was not yet time to go home. It was time to go hopping from bar to bar.

TPOL’s Tip: Taberna El Rincon Madrid is located at Calle del Duque de Medinaceli, 12
Madrid 28014

Stop 1: La Dolores 

Exit Taberna and go right. There you will find La Dolores. The place is packed with atmosphere and history.

Stop 2: Trocha 

Slightly fatigued, I popped into Trocha for an espresso.

After caffeine and caipirinha, I was convinced that I would resume trumpet lessons upon my return to Puerto Rico. The next day that desire wore off.

TPOL’s Tip: Trocha is located at C. de las Huertas, 55, 28014 Madrid, Spain

Stop 3: La Esquina 

The final stop was La Esquina. After red wine, beer, and liquor, it was only natural to switch to white.

While I wanted to keep the party going, we were promptly shown the door at 1AM.

The intersection of Calle de Jesus and Calle de las Huertas is a great place for food and drinks.
