Great Madrid Bits from the Web

Culture, Weird : Quirky : Fun

by Katie Goldstein

I’ve got a couple of Madrid-related things here that have caught my eye recently.

1. Madrid Me Mata has provided us with a great resource: a map of all free WiFi hotspots in Madrid. Obviously the guys at MMM need our help, so if you know of a place with free WiFi, you can add it to the map following the instructions (in Spanish) here. Happy (free) surfing!

2. I’ve been meaning to write a post about where to see live music in Madrid. This week the New York Times has published a write-up of great spots to hear live music all over town, and it’s definitely worth checking out. Any places you, dear readers, can add?

The discoteques La Riviera and Joy Eslava both have regular concerts, as does the Sala Heineken – none of them are very big but they get fairly well known bands. Smaller venues worth checking out are Siroco (near San Bernardo) and Gruta 77 in Carabanchel.

Good call, Graeme. I’m also a fan of Sala Caracol, down beyond Embajadores.
