A Guide To Your Madrid Hen Weekend

Where to Drink in Madrid

You know as well as we do that this fashion-forward city is going to have some pretty special places to drink with your excited group of trendy hens.

For those groups who prefer hipster hangouts to late-night sessions, Malsanna is the district to head to. The vibrant streets are alive with trendy locals and it has a green feel like no other place in the city to really up the edge-factor. It’s the home of the most quirky bars and the best way to do Madrid if the bride-to-be is a style-spotter!

On a trip to Madrid, you’re bound to end up at Mayor Plaza for a drink and a bite to eat. You could spend a whole evening here dipping in and out of the beaut bars that boast lengthy spirit lists and refreshing pints after a little retail therapy!

Sights & Sounds

Sights - Why wouldn't you take an Egyptian monument, pull it to pieces, transport it thousands of miles and rebuild it? Madrid did. It's just one of the many wonders to be found at Parques Reunidos, a huge public park which is the perfect spot to catch a few rays while letting the sun's magical rays help soothe any tender hen heads.

Sounds - Madrid's glitterati and world-famous celebs looking to party will sooner or later head to Gabana. This club can be rather exclusive, but when the likes of presidents, international footballers, supermodels, movie stars are among your clientele you can probably afford to be. A simply amazing nightclub!
Velvet is one of the most modern clubs we've ever seen! Really, it's so funky, we kept expecting to bump into our future selves. And the music is superb!

Shopping in Madrid

Madrid is all about style: fashion designers and supermodels can often be seen in Salamanca, one of the city's trendiest areas, which is awash with top designer brands. Even if you don't want to send your credit card into meltdown, as window shopping goes, it's a shopaholics paradise. Where else in the world would you find a shop that only sells capes?
Calle Preciados – Head to this central street to find top, well-known and familiar brands, and El Corte Ingles, Spain's largest department stores.
Plaza Mayor – For more local and more charm, the area behind Plaza Mayor has more traditional crafts and real colour.
Gran Vila – Just to the north of this main thoroughfare, you'll find a number of independent boutiques and designers that won't break the bank.
