The beating heart of bohemian Madrid, Malasaña is the creative center of the Spanish capitol. Inspiration comes in liquid form here, with at least one bar for every seven people. Nights are crowded with people headed to lively, unpretentious bars and clubs specializing in world music, alternative culture and Madrid's "La Movida" (countercultural) lifestyle. People spill out onto the narrow streets and open plazas after the bars close
