The Madrid night is full of legends. Hollywood stars, secrets hidden in the gloom of bars, conspiratorial bartenders listening to nocturnal confessions... And, of course, cocktails worthy of a true 007 on a nocturnal undercover mission. Daiquiri, gimlet, cosmopolitan, manhattan, mojito or a classic G&T. Whatever your choice, you'll find it, alongside memories of the golden nights of the Fifties, when film stars filled the nightclubs and dives of the capital with glamour. Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway are just a few who passed through El Chicote and Cock, and became hooked on the sparkle of Madrid's endless night. Put your watch back to a more glamorous era in a Madrid cocktail bar and discover that, just like in the movies, anything is possible.
