Cervecería El Doble

Bar in Parque del Oeste & Northern Madrid

While bright lights, standing-space only and no-frills tapas would seem like an unlikely combination for winning over clientele, Cervecería El Doble has been defying the odds for nearly three decades. Packed from noon to late, devotees swear that this frozen-in-time bar has the best drinks around. Two classic standbys include vermouth and, of course, a 'doble' of beer.
