You cross Bastard's revolving doors, go up to the room, leave your suitcase in your drawer and ask: shall we go down and have some canes (cañas)?
Before you open Google Maps or ask Siri, pay attention because, even if we don't have the master's degree in knowing the trick of throwing a perfect cane, we are good beer tasters and neighbors of Tribunal.
If the most daring hotel in Malasaña doesn't know where to drink a good cane...turn it off and let's go. These are the bars where you can have a cane (or several) near the hostel.
To get to know the most traditional Madrid you have to visit (at least once in your life) Bodegas La Ardosa.
Beer and gastronomic tradition on all four sides. Lean on the bar and order your cane with a tortilla skewer. Starting to drool is only a matter of seconds.
Plus, it's only a few steps from the hostel so you won't have to walk a long way to your reserved room if you've overdone it.
Calle Colón, 13 – 28004 MADRID
A traditional joint, Casa Camacho has been around for a century. Your great-grandparents once came here for a glass of delicious, cool beer with a nice foam – just the way you like it, and just the way they liked it. It continues to stand strong, ensuring that along with a well-poured beer, you enjoy a top-notch homemade tapa.
The space remains just like the good old days, the way your great-grandparents knew it. With its traditional bar, small tables, appetizers... basically, a classic tavern where you can meet up with your friends.
And if you're not a fan of beers, know that Casa Camacho also has the best vermouth in the Malasaña neighborhood.
Calle de San Andrés, 4 – 28004 MADRID
The truth is that inside Bastard Hostel we don't throw anything badly the reeds either.
In the bar of the Limbo Grill you can choose between having a tap beer or a bottle beer.
The recommendation of the house? The Bastard Beer, for you to get into the matter.
Do you dare to feel the bastard blood running through your veins? Sip by sip you'll notice how it descends from your mouth to your stomach. Be the most bastard of all your friends!
Calle de San Mateo, 3 – 28004 MADRID
It is clear that a cane unites. We know that very well in Bastardo Hostel because we are one of the places to visit if you come to visit Madrid. We are the hostel to do many other things besides sleep. Music, art, books and gastronomy. All this takes place in Bastardo all year round.
Now all that's left to say is: do we make some canes?
