Chocolatería San Ginés

5 Pasadizo San Ginés
Madrid, 28013, Spain
TEL: 34-91-365-6546

First opened in 1894, Chocolatería San Ginés is renowned for its churros con chocolate — deep fried pastries served with a cup of thick dipping chocolate. Located in an alley off the pedestrian-only Calle del Arenal and near namesake San Ginés Church, the small eatery caters to customers nearly 24 hours a day. It is especially popular after midnight and serves cakes and coffee as well. Inside, marble tables, velvet seats, and mirrors give the café an old-fashioned feel that befits its century-old status. Besides counter- and table-seating, there are also some outdoor chairs.

Insider Tip:

Around the corner, Joy Eslava nightclub is converted from a 19th-century theater and a perfect place to head before or after.
