La Ardosa has been around for over a century, and it’s famous for its Vermouth on tap (respect) and Czech beer. This traditional Spanish tavern is the kind of joint where the number of used napkins on the floor can (and should) be used as a measurement for its popularity. If you happen to be wandering around the Malasaña area it’s a must.
Enter into a small room and check out the many yellow newspaper clippings covering the walls. Legs of ham hang from every possible spot so if you’re a die-hard veggie you might want to find somewhere else to play. This room is always rammed, but squeeze under the bar and you'll find yourself in a second room - just make sure to mind the bar staff... and your head.
