It´s time for the Christmas meeting of this group!

Calle Ponzano has become exceedingly trendy in the last couple of years. In fact, I have a friend who lives on the street who says he has seen tour groups being led through Ponzano to experience the bars.

However, there is one bar on Calle Ponzano that has resisted this drive towards trendiness.

Our venue has some particularly stunning dive bar features:
* Bar stools that are actually beer barrels with a vinyl cushion on top
* Two fruit machines
* Possibly the ugliest tiling that I have seen in any bar in Madrid
* Bizarre cream coloured (maybe it was white originally?) fake leather padding under the bar
* A “Salon TV” which seems to always be dark
* This bar does not exist on Google Maps

The beer on draft is Amstel (again!) but they do tercios of Mahou for €2. Protected content is a bargain in central Madrid. Wine and copas are available too.

The bar is surrounded by metro stations with Iglesia (L1) and Alonso Cano (L7) close by. Canal (L2, L7) and Quevedo (L2) are also near and Gregorio Marañon (L Protected content 10 minutes walk away.

We are having to hold this meetup earlier than normal as there is an Internations Official Event on at 9pm on Thursday the 12th. So I will be in the bar from 7pm and we need to end by 9pm. However, the official event venue is just 4 minutes walk away.

So if you’re going to the official event pop in on your way!
