The Plaza de Alonso Martínez is a square that serves as a link between different districts of Madrid, so you'll find all types of restaurants, shops and people. The majestic Chamberí is to the north, while toward the south you'll find Tribunal and Chueca, different from each other but both full of life. Walking west you'll run into the Trafalgar district and its Plaza de Olavide; while if you head east on C/Genoa, where the headquarters of the conservative political party Partido Popular resides, you'll end up at Plaza de Colón.
The junction where two other areas that are like chalk and cheese, Chamberí and Chueca, meet up is in this colourful square dedicated to the lawmakers and politicians of Spain. Out of this fusion of neighbourhoods have sprung the markets, bars, restaurants, and shops with charm sprinkled throughout the streets of Alonso Martínez. At night indie, rock, and jazz steal the show in this barrio.
