Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Madrid

Mrs O. Around the World – A Travel Chat
Spa Relajarse
Intimate little spa wonderfully decorated and positioned in the middle of Madrid, perfect to detox and relax.
Club de Campo Villa de Madrid
Designed by Seve Ballesteros and Javier Arana and considered to be one of the best golf courses in Spain, Club De Campo offers amazing views of the Royal Palace from its high perch on the western outskirts of Madrid.
RI Cars
Ares Mobile
Le Garage
Set in what was previously a car park, the interior is now reminiscent of a New York loft. The cuisine is a curious mix of Japanese and other dishes such as langoustines flambéed in cognac.
Entre Tapas Y Vinos
Modern minimalist interiors and seating arrangements encourage a quick meal. The lunch and dinner menus consist of combination tapas, toasted baguettes and more substantial fish and meat dishes.
Al Norte
A mouthwatering a la carte menu celebrates Northern Spanish cuisine with flair - there is even a romantic menu for couples and highbrow debating sessions known as ‰ÛÏtertulias‰Û on Monday nights.
Plaza de la Cibeles
Enjoy the buzzing hub of the Centro area, where the popular Paseo del Prado and Calle de Alcala meet, and where you will find one of Madrid's most famous monuments. This spot also offers a celebration spot for Real Madrid football fans upon a big win
Casa de Campo and the Telerifico
The only way to get a real idea of the sheer size of this city wilderness is to take the Teleférico cable car from the edge to the middle.
CaixaForum
This intriguing building, designed to mirror the roofscape of the surrounding buildings, houses several exhibition floors hosting a selection of temporary shows.
Oz Teatro
A cut above back-street peep shows and lap dancing joints, Oz Teatro is as stylish as a strip club can be. To delve further into Madrid's vice scene, head for the Casa de Campo.
Balmoral
You would be forgiven for thinking you were in a remote castle in the Scottish highlands at Balmoral, where the atmosphere is refined and civilised and the queues non-existent.
Ramses
The atmosphere and glamorous crowd - as well as the elaborate interior design in an archaeological theme - create high expectations, but unfortunately, the food is the least impressive thing at Ramses.
