Taberna Laredo is our pick for authentic Spanish food that’s modern and up-to-date without being overly fussy. In typical Spanish style, the upstairs space offers a full meal (and impressive wine list), while the downstairs is a tapas-only bar. Madrid is a city of night owls, so it doesn’t really start to heat up downstairs until around 11pm, when locals belly up to the bar for well-executed cocktails and small dishes.
