Famous for its lively gay nightlife, Chueca is the place to party. By day, this small area nestled between Gran Vía and Malasaña is where you'll find cool boutiques and a gourmet market in the recently opened Mercado de San Antonio. At night pretty much anything goes, with the majority of the action around Plaza de Chueca—but go into any of the side streets and you'll find bars and clubs to suit all tastes. The neighborhood offers bargain take away and tapas-El Tigre on Calle de Infantas offers free tapas with your beer.
