La Gabinoteca: wine bar or cocktail lounge?

The Gabinoteca oscillates between modern DIY tapas and a typical and lively Madrid bar.

Started by two brothers from Asturias, Nino and Santi Redruello, the Gabinoteca is a tapas hangout and a cocktail bar on two levels that hosts a trendy crowd. The emphasis here is on the quality of ingredients. Start with creative and delicious tapas: scallops with crystallised hot peppers, razor shell clam gratin with herbs, both presented in a very original way. Try a mojito or a glass of wine from the superb wine list. The latter can be selected in the most unusual manner: the list actually points towards your particular state of mind following a personality test. The desserts are original: a chocolate fondant served with strawberries, vanilla ice cream and melting hot chocolate, skilfully served in a bike shape. Arrive early to get a table and a place at the bar. Reservations are possible only for lunch.
