Great barrio with narrow streets just full of the hippest shops. Our hostel was in this area and it was a convienent place to be based. There are good options for Tapas Bars as well.

A bustling hip shopping area along Fuencarral and the side streets only hint at the LGBT community that works and lives in this neighborhood, one that evolves in the evening to a large number of gay venues as well as fun and good restaurants, spilling...More

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses
