Hg2 : The Hedonist

Areia

When Areia, dubbed a ‘colonial chill out bar’ (whatever that might be) first appeared, it became one of the hippest spots for places to drink in Madrid despite having been born from a very uncool Irish pub. The tattooed and pierced crowd flock to Areia, attracted by the four-poster bed at the back and the sofas-come-beds in the front.

However, very quickly the place got a little too cool for its own good and now attracts a mix of the pijo set, alongside the hipsters that made it popular in the first place. As well as freshly ground mojitos, you can choose from a selection of cocktails, teas and cakes, and even grab a brunch come Sunday. The décor gives the dimly lit interior a North African feel, while live DJs provide a chilled-out soundtrack to the evening. The only complaint is the volume of said music, as noise restrictions mean that at peak times it is barely audible above all the hubbub.
