Hg2 : The Hedonist

Stop Madrid

Founded way back in 1929, Stop Madrid manages to be at once a traditional tapas bar in Madrid but also a magnet for a cool, Chueca crowd. Stop Madrid is located on the corner of Calle Fuencarral, just around the corner from Gran Vía, the bar itself will get your mouth watering as soon as you set eyes on it.

Glistening hams hang alongside spicy sausages and morcillas (a fantastic kind of blood sausage/black pudding, should you have the stomach for that sort of thing), while open plates of all kinds of tuna and seafood sit underneath the glass counter. The great selection of wines provides a perfect accompaniment to the tapas and raciones on offer, and while the service may not be the friendliest, it is at least efficient.
