Leonardo Peña
A Flight Attendant

My style is inspired by art. Some days I’m in a Michelangelo mood—he successfully combined shades that would seem to clash. There’s a Spanish designer I love, Amaya Arzuaga, because she really plays with volume—her clothing is like sculpture. Something that everyone should see right now is the Francis Bacon show at the Museo del Prado, celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth. A contemporary artist at the Prado?¡Qué bueno!

Mauricio Delgado
Real Estate Agent

I work in a mundo formal, and always dress the part—even when I’m walking my dog, Tahis. My suit is from Cortefiel, a classic, elegant Spanish label. This neighborhood is home to one of my favorite lunch spots, the Modern Dining Room (dinner for two $75). They have a real Valencian making the paella.

Rosa Picas
Social Worker

A lot of my clothing comes from El Rastro, a huge Sunday-morning flea market in La Latina barrio. Afterward everyone goes for cañas [beer] and tapas at bars nearby. But the best tapas are right here in Chueca, at the Bar el Tigre (tapas for two $25). I love their croquetas de queso.

Mila Natividad
Actress

I’m a woman who wears many hats—literally. Muitobrigado in the Salamanca barrio, is the cutest millinery, with wool caps, sun hats, and more. I’m dying to see the Hamlet production at the Teatro Español starring Blanca Portillo, one of Spain’s most celebrated actresses.

Pablo Torres Weist
Stylist

Chueca is full of accessories stores, so I come here a lot for my job. Ensanchez is known for its colorful leather purses, designed by one of the owners. I’m a big fan of scarves; I’ve found everything from silk handkerchiefs to cotton bandannas mixed in with clothes from the 40’s to the 70’s at Lotta Vintage.
