Madrid Pick of the week 17-23 May 2010

Jamie Cullum concert 26th May Barcelona

Café Comercial (Plaza de Oriente 2)
Café Comercial is the major meeting point of Madrid. During daytime it may seem a quiet pub, but in the evenings it is packed with people. The building itself dates from 1887 and when you pass through the near-antique doors, time seems to have stopped here. They still serve milk and hot chocolate, they stil have marble blade tables and it is still an intimately crowded place.
By surprise you can use the Internet in this cafe, which means you can order a sandwich, drink and keep in touch with home as well.
