“Highly recommend a visit if you're in the Chueca area while visiting our city. This bar as established in 1917 is where is said the king Alfolso XIII went to have a vermouth. Probably the best vermouth of the city is served in this place. Great place for place for drink with friends.Very good atmosphere and good service. ”

“La Cocina de San Antón es la terraza preferida de los vecinos del barrio de Chueca y alrededores, por eso no te sorprendas si llegas y te encuentras el mejor ambiente de toda la zona. Es imposible resistirse a esta azotea, que cada año nos conquista con su carta exquisita y unos cócteles que están a la altura. Además, como está en la última planta del Mercado de San Antón, puedes irte con la compra hecha y todo. Calle Augusto Figueroa, 24”
