Hg2 : The Hedonist

Bar Cock

Once you’ve had a little snigger at the name, Bar Cock is worth checking out as one of longest serving cocktail bars in Madrid which, according to legend, was once a brothel connected by a tunnel to Museo Chicote on Gran Vía. The rather ornate furnishing at Bar Cock belies the long history of the venue, and the very serious staff only add to the feeling that you’re in a place where professional drinking is encouraged. Indeed, dare to take your camera out and you’ll be politely but firmly told that you don’t do that sort of thing around here.

In contrast to the style and the ambiance of the place, the DJ roster is surprising, with somewhat incongruous electro sessions as the order of the day. The prices are high, but this is after all a Madrid institution.
