🗯💥Lichtenstein was classically trained and mastered many techniques and styles of painting that many to this day would struggle to perfect. Mostly remembered for being one of the fathers of Pop Art and the master of the dotting technique. His colourful comic vignettes portrayed either brave, emotionless soldiers in dogfights during WW2, or 1960’s picture-perfect couples crying and sobbing over tedious relationship issues. Although not the innovator of the dotting technique, he did become the master of it, using colour and size to control depth and shades, at first glance his art may seem basic, but it’s far from it. Behind the pristine, clean exterior, lies complexity and great aptitude. Fundación Canal de Isabel II is putting 76 posters of his art on display for free, until January. Perfect for any appreciator of Lichtenstein’s work and/or Pop Art. . . Foundacion Canal de Isabel II

🔥Here’s why we love Brunch in the Park. It brings so many ages and backgrounds together, from kids, to teens, to young adults, to parents, uncles, aunties and more. It’s open-air, so it’s a perfect excuse to get out of the house. It’s on a Sunday, which thank god gets you out of said house in case you were thinking of waisting it away inside watching TV. The line-up is worthy of any techno festival you would pay for during the summer. The organisation is so well implemented that you go, you dance, you leave, and everything just goes by so smoothly. It also finishes at 10pm, so you’re not putting your Monday at risk by going “out out”. You have 5 Sundays from September to October to enjoy Brunch, when everyone should be suffering from post summer depression.. Seriously, when everyone is recalling their amazing summers like they happened a decade ago, we all, deep down, say to ourselves.. “yeah… but brunch starts in a week”. The question soon will be though.. what is there to do after that? . . Pics by 📸@rey_morales . . #brunchinthepark#techno#madrid#madridcity#weekend#weekendplans#sunday#locomadrid

🍤 What differentiates Western and Asian Cuisine is the way flavours are connected. Whereas the former seek to pair similar tasting ingredients together, to make a unified, complementary dish, the latter cuisine seeks to find opposites, contrasting flavours, giving the palette a true taste experience. Shanghai Mama knows this, and is bringing that experience to Madrid. In the slick 60’s style decor, with tokens of Asian culture and history across the walls provide the perfect place for these delicious dishes! 😍

☕️🍰Finding a place where you can have a nice breakfast in the morning, or coffee in the afternoon, or even a drink in the evening are a dime a dozen in Lavapies, but Carmen offers all of those things, and more. This quaint little place is ran with care and you can really feel that. From their (amazing) carrot cake, to their mouth-watering Focaccias, the bicolour Tinto de Verano and their revitalising G&T that start in the evening and lead into to the night, are all some of many little quirks that make Carmen the place it is. From their very slick interior, to the spacious exterior terrace, it’s a place to go day or night, no matter the weather. Where’s your favourite place for a cake or coffee in Madrid? . .

Considered to be the most famous female Art Deco painter, Lempicka was also mostly infamous for her libido and scandalous affairs with her subjects, with a penchant for men and women. It is quite befitting therefore that the exhibition of her art be held inside the Gaviria Palace, which went from palace, to nightclub, to abandoned space, and now a platform to showcase old and new art, and artists spanning the centuries. The “Queen of Art Deco”, Tamara de Lempicka. captured a hedonistic and swingy period of time that that has been portrayed many-a-time, and justifiably so. The sharp angles and shades of the Deco movement, paired with the vibrant colours make it such a unique style which can be admired and never grown tired of. With over 200 pieces on display, it’s a great presentation of the work of an artist extremely of that time, yet also ahead of it. . . Calle Arenal, 9 , 28013 . .

A vintage-style lounge where a tea or coffee accompanied by a piece of artisan cake take centre stage and offer you quite the authentic experience. The quiet atmosphere, the enveloping music and the exquisite treatment of their staff, make this space the ideal place to enjoy a little break in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city centre.The venue, like the ones we already know from Bachiller, is an invasion of the senses: the decoration is otherworldly, the attention of the staff is caring and professional, and the dishes served are worthy of a foodie! Try the sushi & maki combo with the chef's specialties: exotic tartar, marine sushi, gyozas & vietnamese rolls or shrimp tempura. Just make sure to share, because you won’t be able to finish it all by yourself. 📸 @gigicong . . Calle gran vía 65 . . Mon-Thu: 10am-12am

Whether you’re a marvel fan and only discovered shawarma from the end credit scene of the avengers, or a massive foodie who loves middle-easten food like us, then you’ll be glad to know of the existence of Shawa! It’s safe to say that so are the two founders of this great little place. Having travelled around the world in order to find the perfect Shawarma, they have brought something special to town. With a slow Marinating process, the meat couldn’t be more flavourful. This isn’t just a gimmick, but a true homage to one of the tastiest delicacies east of here.

🍷Marula Café is known by many, and for different things. Some know it as the intimate live music venue, where bands from all over come to share their music. Some know it for its DJ session, others for it’s cool lit bar that serves drinks and cocktails. But we know it for its somewhat secluded terrace. Situated below the Viaducto de Segovia, this truly is a magical place for a drink, especially when the sun sets, and the bridge casts strips of shadow across the terrace. It feels like a small private area, that people 20 feet above walk over unknowingly. . . 📍Caños viejos 3 . . 🚇La Latina . . 💵€€ . . #terrace#terraza#madrid#madridcity#visitmadrid#madridterraces#segovia#acueducto#decopas#drinking#cocktails#marula#madridplans#weekend#loco#lw#madridguide#madridmagazine

🌮The minute you walk into Gracias.Padre, you can’t help but take in all of the colourful decoration, and when the food arrives you realise that the essence of the country’s joie de vivre isn’t the only thing they’ve brought over. The staff are very helpful in walking you through all of their dishes, but the food speaks for itself! Order Nachos and you’ll be presented with a flavourful bowl that looks like the Mexican Flag, order the tacos and you’ll get fried bacalao or spicy chicken, and if you have room for more by the end, try their lemon tart! With a sizeable terrace and 2 floors, there are many layers to this fun little restaurant. . . Calle de José Ortega y Gasset, 55 . . Lista . . Mon-Sun: 1.30pm-1.30am . . €€-€€€

With a selection of delicious cakes, and aromatic teas, you will find yourself in what feels like a set of Marie Antoinette Movie, or that movie you watched in the 90’s about 3 kids in a Secret Garden. With trees, plants, statues made of marble and little fountains, it’s a place that will take you away from the heat and noise of Madrid!

Whether you like to hear it or not, summer is already drawing to a close. As we prepare to get back to work and/or studies, why not have a couple more magical nights synonymous with summer, at an open air cinema.

The cultural movement that shaped modern-day Madrid, had its epicentre in Malasaña, and many are the places that remind us of it. 
Madrid Me Mata is the perfect shrine to La Movida, this bar has been around since the 80s, and feels like you’ve walked into a time warp, with 80’s hits (Both international & national) playing and their videoclips in the background, the walls and ceiling have posters scattered across, highlighting principal moments of that time. If what you’re looking for is to have a cool beer, or one of many cocktails they offer, while listening to The Cure, then this is the place for you. . . Calle Corredera Alta de San Pablo, 31 . .
