The centrally located Chueca neighborhood is a fun, flirty place full of fashionable restaurants and shops. Once a marginalized area, Chueca today is anything but. It’s known asMadrid’s quarter for cutting-edge trends and gay life. But gay or straight, Chueca is now a playground for all, especially on weekend and summer nights when you will see the restaurants and bars packed. Don’t be afraid to come out and strut your stuff along with the locals. It’s all in good fun.
See & Do
Though the Chueca neighborhood maintains the character of its 1900 style buildings, Chueca’s most important attractions are not its architecture, but its squares, shops and cosmopolitan personality. Head to the Plaza de Chueca to see the heart of the neighborhood and a popular gathering spot, and then to San Anton Market for the best in food.
LikeSoHoto which it is often compared, Chueca is known for its mix of unique and trendy restaurants. Here theMadridneighborhood is as much a treat for the palate as for its purposeful ambiances. You don’t need to dress up though; just come well groomed, act like you belong and you’re in!
For all its reputation as a trendy mecca, the Chueca neighborhood has a surprising mix of different types of bars and clubs. Gay, straight, lesbian, hoity-toity and down and dirty – Chueca’s bars and clubs seem to cater to it all. So if one place isn’t your cup of tea, that’s no problem, just head next door. Chances are it’ll be totally different.
Chueca is steps away from the city’s action – you can hardly get more central than Chueca. As a small neighborhood there aren’t tons things to do, but the experience you will live here tend to reflect the neighborhood’s character by being gay friendly, exhibiting a penchant for design or both of those things at once.
