The NOTEBOOK Madrid.comExpert facts from local expats since 2001

Gran Via is known for it's giant, department stores and international brands. But Madrid has a wide selection of retailers all over the city. Check out the areas of Malasaña, Chueca, or Salamanca if you prefer small stores with more unique fashion. 

The House, a reference among Christmas Pop Up stores


When the agency Better organizes an event (temporary restaurants, temporary terraces), we have to admit it is always tastefully done and very successful.
For the second year in a row, The House sets up its quarters in a lovely building on calle del General Arrando, close to Alonso Martinez. Swing by for the pleasure of the eyes, to meet girlfriends and have lunch, and to check the beautiful items exhibited on all three floors of the bulding.
You will find decoration objects, flowers, clothes, accessories, bikes, gourmet food, Madrid guides, among others. Impossible to leave the place empty-handed.
Among the exhibitors: la Real Fábrica Española, the shop with centenary Spanish brands, Harina and its quality bread, La Recova with its vintage furniture, Mayice’s intelligent furniture.
We love it!
