This outstanding building is located on Alcalá Street, and its magnificent and luxurious hall can be appreciated from the street. The Madrid Casino was started in 1836 when an exclusive group of people met at the Café del Príncipe. However, the lands located between Alcalá and de la Aduana Steets, where the new building would be constructed, were purchased in 1903.
The Casino is a magnificent example of Madrid’s eclectic ideas in the early 20th Century, with a mixture of French and Baroque trends. The best artists and artisans were hired for the decoration of the interior of the building. Highlights include the large reception room, Neo-Baroque and modern Maumejean windows, and the main staircase in a singular Modernist style, which is one of the best in Madrid.
Regarding the restaurant, Jaime Hayón, a young man from Madrid who is transgressing fashion and design, has given the restaurant a luxury and modernity, which go beyond its menu. Today, apart from the avant-garde cooking of the great Paco Roncero, who is constantly supervised by guru Ferrán Adrià, the restaurant astonishes people with its spectacular white-and-black chequered flooring, inspiring chandeliers, beveled mirrors on the walls multiplying the space, greyish-blue chairs in hundreds of shapes, original porcelain figures, and a private room that stands out even more for its elegance and because of its impressive chandelier and hand-painted plates hanging from the roof.
