fresh & funkycultured

An old tobacco factory serves as the fantastic backdrop to a hip collaborative art space put together with the cooperation of local artists and the Spanish ministry of culture. The huge old building is a raw canvas for painters, filmmakers, photographers, sculptors, dancers, skaters, etc. I love this space! It's so cool and laid back, and there's art "happening" all around you. You can have drinks in the yard at night and check out all the funky installations or take one of their many workshops.

Microtheatre

recommendation by limalimon

cultured

Taking advantage of the space of a former butcher various directors, writers and actors have created microtheatre for money.

Plays under 15 minutes to less than 15 people who are represented in continuous session. Always works will focus on a topic that will change each month, like directors and actors: for money, for sex, for love, for dead ...

You can see their schedule here: http://teatropordinero.com/pags/programa.php

party animalfresh & funky

Lavapies is one of the places in Madrid with more tradition: it was a small and humild zone, and now is famouse because has a lot of inmigrants living here, specially indian people.
You can find here a lot of indian restaurants, small shops of food and spices and some other typical stuff from Asia.

Beautiful to walk up and down in the morning, in the afternoon and late at night. The heart of Madrid, a tacky Broadway Avenue. It has the first skyscraper from Madrid (the Telefonica building) and many buildings that look like wedding cakes ;-)
