From Tapas we compile the best plans with which to enjoy the weekend in Madrid, and relegate ourselves to hedonism between cultural and gastronomic experiences, parties, events and museums. Take the agenda and take note of our weekly proposal.


On Friday we’ll align with Circolo Popolare to inaugurate the newest star in the Big Mamma galaxy. This Italian restaurant opens its doors to eclipse the capital’s culinary scene, both for its vibrant design work directed by Studio Kiki, and for its elevated reinterpretation of Italian cuisine.

From the antipasti, expressly designed for infinite spreads in company, such as burrata directly from Puglia to a mortadella al tartufo by Gianni Negrini. A feast orchestrated by its chef Luigi Venturo that can continue with its amazing 80-centimeter long pizza or its fresh pasta options such as Casarecce all’arrabbiata with a touch of the most spicy putting all the fire in the recipe, or its Pappardelle with lobster for the most refined palates. The icing on the cake? It is their twist of pistachio tiramisu or their tiramisu caffetino e dolci.

At nightfall, we will head to Sala Siroco to dance non-stop until dawn with the party ‘Brrrrrap x PANNA presents: Coki (DMZ)‘, and the sounds and dubstep sets of Coki (DMZ) or the mystic dj, Merca Bae, who distorts different sounds of dancehall or trap in an experimental key. Get your pass here.


Artistic stimulation will activate us in the morning once again at La Causa Galería, which is now hosting Dominika Kovacikova‘s solo exhibition entitled ‘THEY MISTOOK MY KINDNESS FOR WEAKNESS‘.

Kováčiková‘s work proposes a journey through environments inhabited by lonely women immersed in complex narratives that are diluted in paintings that evoke a kind of psychological thriller based on tragedy, treated with pastel tones and a sweetened aesthetic that contrasts with the violent background of the landscapes or the moods of her characters.

Saturday’s meal will be held at the emblematic Amós restaurant, located inside the Rosewood Villa Magna Hotel, which is now opening its season with a new menu featuring the most iconic dishes of the award-winning chef Jesús Sánchez.

At one of their tables, we will taste some of their new avant-garde creations through their ‘Essence Menu‘, which proposes a journey through the Cantabrian paradise through flavors and raw materials. We will taste dishes such as its oil bread toast with tartar and anchovy, the beef tenderloin biquini, farmhouse cheese and confit bell pepper, as well as its green avocado gazpacho with smoked sea bass and salpicon dressing, in the middle of a succulent and innovative experience that culminates with its pasiego sobao custard with cream ice cream.


On Sunday we will explore art in another format, the culinary, but in an environment that is not far from that of a museum. We will have brunch at Café de la March, the cafeteria of the Fundación Juan March, designed by architect José Luis Picardo in 1975, which was renovated and presented as a more modern enclave in which to escape by reading a book and drinking a specialty coffee from the guys at Hola Coffe, and then continue with a Fettuccine al pesto with burrata.

In the afternoon, we will go down to the most emblematic basement of the clubber scene: The Bassement, to enjoy the Laster Club party, which presents a line up starring KANTINA with Chami, Yanamaste, Yant & LAIA, and their intense techno grooves with which to close the weekend of in euphoric key.
