antonio-sanchez-1The Taberna Antonio Sánchez was opened in 1786 and since then has been continuously open and run by people linked to the world of bull-fighting. Today it is the oldest, unrenovated tavern in Madrid and the decoration has been maintained intact since its inception. In it you can still see the gas lamps that originally lit the premises, the elevator that brought bottles from the cellar, the walls painted with medallions depicting faces of former bullfighters, Frascuelo, Lagartijo and Cara Ancha, who frequently came enjoy more than a glass of wine with a torrija (a sweet spicy toast). La Taberna has also been the meeting place for tertulias literarias (literary discussions) between personalities like Pio Baroja, Sorolla, Marañón Camba and so on… Taberna Antonio Sánchez continue their work, guarding the secrets of their ‘home-made’, traditional Spanish cuisine and they will not relinquish the traditional preparation processes.
