Ask for a beer and they give you a free tapa that’s good-sized and flavourful. Think this happens only in Andalusia? Think again. Among the great things to do in Madrid is to explore the world of tapas, and you’re in luck if you’ve not got a big budget with gems like these bars that are happy to share the love. We’re not talking just a bag of crisps or a couple of olives either – your cold brew might come with a ‘pintxo de tortilla’ (a bit of omelette atop bread), some charcuterie or a mini hamburger. From a Madrid classic like El Tigre to the little corner of Andalusia that is La Pequeña Graná, we show you the best bars to go for a drink when you’re also feeling a bit peckish.
