Ask anyone about bar Flexas and you’ll hear about their epic parties which had to be moved to a park nearby as they’d outsized the bar and the street it sits on! It’s smiles all round at these summer shindigs which are all about daytime dancing, outdoor drinking and outré performances by the sequinned and feathered Flexas- folk dressed up in drag. Sounds like BarChick’s kind of brawl..
Not only is Flexas owned by well known, way-out actress/ singer ‘La Terremoto de Alcorcón’ but also everyone working there has a background in showbizz, which reflects in the bar’s theatrical touches and its come as you are type vibe. Fan of fab food, lover of local wine or wearer of pink faux fur, they all flock to Flexas for loud catch-ups at little tables.
Afternoons are good for a bite and a few beers as during the day you’ll find chef ‘Star’, (quite the character!), cooking his socks off in his tiny, tiled kitchen. Or rock up later to curl up on the velvet sofa inside to nurse a large Rioja while you keep watch on this ‘quite calle’ through Flexas’ fishbowl windows. And although evenings are a lot milder than you’d suspect they still feel like they could kick off any second..
