What's left of the Movida Madrileña

¡Madrid Nunca Duerme! Tourists and madrileños alike would agree that this saying is still as relevant today, as it was in a time when it typified the social and cultural freedom of La Movida in 1977. If you too want to experience a Madrid that never sleeps, here are a few post-movida locations that have survived the test of time!

Madrid is not short of culture; but why not go off the beaten track and see Juan Carlos Argüello’s graffiti, which is hidden around the Malasaña walls, where La Movida first became known.  One of his most famous works, ‘El Muelle’ is located in Calle de La Montera.

If it is a low-key drink and a bite to eat that you are after, look no further than ‘La Bobia’, an original Movida bar turned Sidería! You will find it in the trendy barrio of La Latina, where the young hang out against a post-movida style backdrop.  In fact, the original ‘La Bobia’ bar featured in Almodovar’s film, ‘Laberinto de Pasiones’, so there is no better place to re-live the Movida atmosphere than at this buzzing bar.

For those looking for somewhere that will lead you into the early hours of the morning, we suggest partying at ‘Madrid Me Mata’, a bar that prides itself upon its Movida influence.  You will notice the hipster murials that surround the young crowd that flock there, adding to the edgy ambience.  For a more casual option head to ‘Free Way’ or ‘Tupperware’, where you can get to grips with music from the Nacho Pop or Dinerama era.

Alternatively, to experience the true essence of La Movida Madrileña in a more logical fashion, you can take a guided tour by night around the district.
