Be a txikitero, my friend
Bilbao, Spain

In Bilbao there are not residents, there are txikiteros. Txikiteros are names given to those who drink txikitos, small glasses of wine served in the bars.

From Madrid to heaven (or so they say)
Madrid, Spain

Latroupe Prado is just a few minutes from the Atocha railway station, the starting point for the museum route. Also some 10 minutes from the Lavapiés, Las Letras and Latina neighbourhoods. A perfect location for a special place.

Madrid, the city that makes you fall in love, but not because of the great museums, the beautiful streets or its wonderful history (which also). The best thing about Madrid is its atmosphere, its life, its plans and above all: the Madrileños. But its best kept secret is that the real Madrileños are from all over the world. Do you want to be one too?

The two faces of Madrid
Madrid has two sides. It’s a palatial city with long stately avenues, like the Gran Vía or La Castellana, but also a chaotic and disordered town of narrow winding streets.  
There is the culinary capital, filled with Michelin stars, and the neighbourhood bars, places where every glass of beer comes with a tapa –greasy bars or tables in the sun serving improvised banquets of spicy potatoes, potato omelette and croquettes. There is the Madrid of the large museums and the musicals, but also the city of small theatre groups, graffiti and centres for alternative culture. Madrid has two sides. And to discover both of them you should have a savvy local friend. Or sleep at Latroupe. 
The museum route
It’s known as Madrid’s Triangle of Art, and is composed of the Prado Museum, the Reina Sofía and the Thyssen. Together they cover all the styles and trends in painting, from the most classic to the most modern. So much art requires several days, so check carefully before visiting them so as to be able to go straight to what you want to see. The museums are located along the Paseo del Prado, between the Plaza de Atocha and the statue of Cibeles. And even if you don’t want to visit them, a stroll through the area (which also includes the Caixaforum museum, the Jardín Botánico and the Retiro Park)  is well worthwhile.
Beers in La Latina
Madrid has many different neighbourhoods, and the best way to get to know them is by visiting their bars. Two areas are Malasaña and Lavapiés. There are the refined boulevards of Salamanca and the LGBT soul of Chueca. But probably the most representative (and historic) is La Latina. The Plaza de la Paja, the Calle del Conde or the crowded Puerta de Moros are full of sidewalk tables that invite you to take a break and gather strength with a beer. And along the way we can find small Renaissance palaces, Gothic churches, medieval streets, and near-secret convent gardens. There are even remains of the city’s ancient walls hidden away behind some doors.
