Salmon Guru (Madrid) | June 13-15 at Dante West Village
Salmon Guru’s dramatic cocktails can be described as “flamboyance combined with flawless execution” - all of which are divided into the categories of refreshing, fruity, crazy, sour, and intense.
The crazy nature of the drinks is also reflected in the decor, with neon lightning bolts lining the ceiling and comic book BAM signs projecting from the walls.
Salmon Guru is currently #24 of the World’s 50 Best Bar list and winner of the Michter’s Art of Hospitality Award 2021.
Angelita (Madrid) | June 20-22 at Dante West Village
Located in central Madrid, Angelita is a cocktail lounge situated in the basement of a restaurant with the same name. 90% of Angelita’s ingredients come from their very own vegetable farm in Zamora and are incorporated into the 16 cocktails on their menu.
The bar team works without most of the conventional tools of the trade, using only a knife to cut the ice and weighing balances to accurately serve their creations. These methods are inspired by pastry and haute cuisine techniques (celebrating Mario’s family’s long tradition in the field).
Most recently, Angelita was listed on the Top 10 Honoree for Best International Bar on Tales of the Cocktails, and won 2021 Best Cocktail Bar in Spain distinction at the prestigious FIBAR awards
La Venencia (Madrid) | June 27-29 at Dante West Village
A celebration of history and tradition, Madrid-based La Venencia is a century-old watering hole that offers a perfectly simple menu of just five sherrys.
Known for its unconventional rules (the origins of which are greatly debated), the bar - surrounded by dusty, picture-covered walls - does not play music, does not allow photos, and does not allow tips.
The bar is full of history, plenty of stories and above all - the love of Spain and the Spanish culture.
