Hg2 : The Hedonist


Thanks to its Philip Starck-designed interior, and attractive location with views of the Puerta de Alcal√°, Ramses has become one of the places to drink in Madrid of late, the appeal only heightened by the flashy champagne cocktails that are the speciality from the bar. The door policy at Ramses is designed to ensure a queue outside at most hours of the evening, and they will turn you away if you’re looking even a little scruffy.

Once inside, you’ll find yourself jostling for elbow room at the square bar with sugar daddies chatting up much younger girls, handsome Mediterranean types with their squeezes, and groups of glammed-up young ladies looking for someone to buy them a drink. Pass by the restaurant and head down the stairs, and if you’re lucky you may be able to blag your way into the basement club, which is usually reserved for private parties but is sometimes open to Joe Public. More a place to see and be seen than one for a rip-roaring good time, Ramses will appeal if you’re feeling ostentatious.
