Eight multifunctional venues for dinners, drinks, concerts (and whatever happens)

We have definitely said goodbye to summer. November has arrived and, although many are already with their eyes and feelings at Christmas time, the truth is that, for others, it is the most tedious and routine month of the year. And, what better than breaking the routine with different plans?

These are the spaces that we have been able to compile for various capitals of Spain with a multifunctional vocation, although, if you know any more in your town, we would appreciate it if you leave them in comments.

Some they offer breakfast, aperitif, lunch and dinner; others elevate these last two in scandalous gastronomic menus; the ones that have the most, have enabled spaces so you can enjoy music and other live shows. Not to mention the ones that go on long and you end up with a drink in your hand dancing to the music of the DJ.

In Madrid

The pirate life is the best life. or so they say in rock piratesas proven by the recommendations of its captain: the good Iberian ham, a ‘Pirate Treasure Sandwich’ of beef or the jewel in the crown to share, a ‘Kilazo of Beef Meat’ with natural chips and peppers, accompanied by a jug two liters of sangria, beer and wine.

Although, perhaps, the best thing about De Raimundo is the atmosphere and the activities that enliven it: concerts or poetry recitals in an intimate and cozy space with a good drink of accompaniment. In addition, you can order to go and even reserve the space for private events. Raimundo Fernandez Villaverde Street, 44. Madrid.

the boulevard: Located on the old and legendary “Boulevar Rosa”, this place opens from a huge corridor towards an interior forest that welcomes you like a membrane from 11 in the morning until late at night.

With a Mediterranean-Asian fusion cuisine, chef José Lera embroiders from the appetizers (such as the consommé, his atypical salad and his curry chicken croquette), through the flavorful sushi and sashimi, the steak tartare or some perfect rice dishes.

After dinner, the place opens up to the party also on the spectacular ground floor, where they have booths and shishas to drink along with their creative cocktails. Passeig de Gracia, 53.
