Sunday night and nothing to do? Well, if you’re in Madrid, Spain, then you probably have less to worry about than the average bum parked out elsewhere. Madrid is one of the most well-known cities in the world, and it’s ideal if you’re up for an exotic taste of culture and a romance-laced adventure trip.
Most people tend to kick back and relax, or unwind with family and friends on a Sunday night, so catching tapas at your favorite tapas place just might not be a possibility at the moment. (Hint: The stores will most likely be closed.) However, there are still great places in Madrid you might want to visit if you’re looking to draw out the weekend.
Trying out the different cuisine in Madrid is one thing you can do on a Sunday night, as a good number of food joints and restaurants can be open up to a certain hour. It’s also fun, unless you’re on a diet (which you really shouldn’t be if you’re touring another country because you’ll miss out a lot). You might want to check out the fabadas at a little Asturiano place called La BurbujaQueRie in Subway Stop, Puerto de Toledo. Plus, the prices are made to cater to students, so if you’re on a budget, this is a good place to chill out on a Sunday evening. If you’re looking for a little more classy dining, then head on over to Plaza Mayor, or Segun Emma. Be prepared to spend—the food can get a little more pricey, but that’s a pretty good deal if you’re looking for a high-quality meal. Tapas are a standard in Madrid, and you can actually buy them around the place until 1 am, however, that might not be an option on Sunday night, so it’s always a good idea to keep your options open.
