It is the trendiest word… or is it not trendy anymore? In any case, hipsters are there and they materialise in some of the places or spaces in this article. We start at La Realidad (Bar Mítico), a bar that opened its doors some four years ago at Calle Corredera Baja de San Pablo, 51. Famous for its different kinds of G&Ts, all the colours they come in and the little bits inside of it, it has as many lovers as it has detractors.
The bar’s success came soon after the owners of La Bicicleta Café tried their luck in the adjacent square of Plaza San Ildefonso, and since its inauguration it has become one of the area’s trendiest spaces. They boast about loving everything with their soul and caring for all the little details, as well as having homemade pastries and healthy food in a setting that pays tribute to cycling culture.
