Sprawling around the military barracks that’s lent its name (and character) to the area, Conde Duque is a lively and bohemian neighbourhood, brimming with newly-established, vintage-style shops. A quiet area, it stands in sharp contrast to the boisterous Gran Vía, Plaza de España and Calle Princesa, which mark the end of this district to the south.

In Conde Duque you won’t find department stores or retail chains, as this neighbourhood seems to favour independent shops instead – carefully decorated small boutiques with a cosy atmosphere and a character of their own.

Clothes are one of the things you can by in the area, which features shops by emerging designers and non-mainstream brands: Mini, an exquisite shop offering exclusive, British-style outfits; La Compañía Polar, a reference in men’s wear; or Maggie, specialising in women’s wear. In Conde Duque, the classic and the modern rub shoulders: you can buy the clothes and accessories for a mod revival or the next-gen sportswear on the same block.

Alongside clothes, in Conde Duque you can get a wide range of other items: valuable vinyl records, rare books and first editions, handmade bags, second-hand guitars or bicycles, original toys…This is the case of the Spanish firm, Peseta, which sells sustainable fashion designed and produced in Spain. 

For collecting enthusiasts, Atlántica Pop! & Harry Potter Store can be found in Calle del Limón, which stocks Funko Pop figures, replicas, Living Dead Dolls, Q-Posket and everything imaginable related to the magical world of Harry Potter.

If you’re a foodie in Conde Duque, take a look at Quesería Cultivo or Los Mostenses Food Market for an interesting international culinary offer, or Panic for bread and pastry.
