Calle Argumosa is blessed with 30 bars. I thought we’d hit critical mass at 29…but oh no.
La Playa opened up last summer and originally had sand on the floor for that beach feel. Luckily, elf & safety made them get rid of the sand every other week and replace it with fresh sand, and they soon got bored of doing that and elbowed the sand idea. Good. I ‘ate sand.
Not a bad place for a drink…alhambra on tap and in tercios, decent range of wine. No vermouth on tap 😦
In terms of food…dunno…never eaten here. They do toasted sandwiches, nachos, guacamole…that sort of affair.
Spanish coffee is, to put it mildly, a bit wank…luckily La Playa is one of the four or five places in the barrio that have italian Illy coffee
(you might find this blog a bit Lavapiés-centric…but i live here…and it is the best barrio in Madriz)
