Avenida de Menéndez Pelayo: The latest trendy street in Madrid

There is no denying the fact that Madrid is currently one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. However, this capital city does not seem to settle for that status as it tries to reinvent itself at every opportunity. Proof of this is when every so often a new fashionable street emerges. In this case we want to talk about Menéndez Pelayo, one of the most popular avenues in the capital located next to the popular Retiro Park.

Menéndez Pelayo Avenue is well-known by all the locals. However, over the last few months, a series of events have been taking place here. This is the case, for example, of the large number of tapas bars that have opened in the area, which have joined the existing ones in order to form a unique gastronomic offer.

To give you some examples, at number 13 is the Taberna Arzábal, which allows you to order tapas and enjoy it on the magnificent terrace overlooking the Retiro Park. The same thing happens with Sanchís Bar, an authentic and classic eatery in the area that specialises in seafood and anchovies. The Chelo de Iñaki Oyarbide, the Bocadillo de Jamón and Champán are some of the other places worth a stopover when hunger strikes.

For its part, it is impossible not to mention the privileged location of Avenida Menéndez Pelayo. And, for a street to be considered fashionable, it is also important that it is well communicated with other places that offer a good supply of leisure facilities.

We should also mention the fact that in this area there are more and more art galleries and design studios. This generally encourages people who have an interest in these activities to visit this avenue, thus completing a really interesting leisure offer. There are also some restaurants and nightclubs that have found their place here within the capital.

All these factors contribute to the popularity of Menéndez Pelayo Avenue and over the last few months, it has become an even more pleasant and interesting place to live in. Proof of this is the increase in demand for flats to rent and buy in the area. In fact, both young people looking for their first home and adults looking for family stability seek residence in and around the avenue.

In short, amongst the wide cobbled streets and fashionable areas in Madrid, Menéndez Pelayo Avenue is fast becoming one of the most important areas in Madrid thanks to its gastronomic and cultural offerings.
