Museo Chicote

Founded in 1931, and located in Gran Via, it was the very first cocktail bar in Spain. Over the years, it has retained the best elements of its history, full of glamour and charm, without missing the train headed towards modernity, now seen in a stimulating light display that changes according to the time of day, and a booth with a DJ spinning the latest tunes.

In all other aspects, Museo Chicote, Madrid's undisputed cocktail temple, still looks the same as it did back in 1931. Those sofas were once sat on by Ava Gardner or Grace Kelly and the 1950s chrome metal chairs once graced the likes of Bette Davis or Frank Sinatra. The list of illustrious film, theatre, music and literary figures who have called in here is almost never-ending. Such was the fame of Chicote's cocktails.

Nowadays, their fame continues, although Chicote himself is no longer with us. It still has that tongue-in-cheek attitude combined with a whole lot of glamour. Delicious cocktails and a whole lot more in a peaceful, modern and charming atmosphere, with a motley crowd that loves top music and good drinks.

Museo Chicote has also been used as a location for numerous films and television series.
