In Casa Labra you've got one of the most traditional bars in Madrid and one of the busiest at weekends. Famously the birthplace of the Spanish Socialist Party back in 1879, this legendary bar, with its brown 1950s paintwork, is worth a visit not only for its history but also for its house speciality: 'bacalao' (cod) in the form of croquettes or fried slices called 'tajadas'. Order a few draught beers ('cañas') and get yourself a spot at one of the high tables they set out on the street as a makeshift terrace.
