My only experience with Areia is as a bar and not a restaurant. This is a really fun place to go for drinks or pre-drinks. They tend to play louder music and it can be very busy after about 11pm so not an ideal spot if you want a more chilled atmosphere or to be able to easily have a... More

Great ambience. Ive been there many times. The perfect place for a drink if you are in the area. I like it during the week, avoiding all the weekend crowd.

Areia was a favorite bar among my friends and I whilst living in Madrid. The decor is funky and unique, and the vibe definitely plays off of it. There was generally a young, international crowd here sipping cocktails and tables get snatched up quickly. Their signature cocktails were always strong and yummy with some sort of unique garnish to top... More

I have spent the last 5 weeks on the camino de santiago. I arrived in Madrid a couple of days ago and was completely overwhelmed by all the people, the shops and the frantic ness . This is an amazing respite from all the craziness. The atmosphere is beautiful. If you like nag champra you'll love this place. ✌️

Nothing impressive. Just cool. I didn't feel it as a remarkable experience just like the others here are saying, but I would come back there again for another drink one day.

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
