food: try plaza santa ana. there are a lot of tapas places around there.
best food: try el botin on calle de la cucherillos (right near the plaza mayor)
its a tourist attraction and rightfully so!

shopping: try the salamanca metro stop. lotsof boutiques around there. including the boutique of monica cruz (penelope's sister)

Does any Madrileno here know a boutique called Kling?
Or one called Eleven?

To be honest, I'm not sure they are in Madrid....

I was looking for a brand on the web and it said that its stockists in Spain is Eleven and Kling... does it ring any bells?

I guess the must be sort of avant-gardish, judging by the brand... any help will be greately appreciated...

Hi, I am going to Madrid in two weeks for a short visit, so any recommendation,beside this will be great! I not interested in designer fashion, but also not in Zara or Mango, I have it here and I don't like it. But something in between, like DKNY and stuff and good shoes. Are all shopping areas in the center of the city and easy to find? And small restaurants and stuff like that, equal to Saint Germain in Paris? Thanks! I am really looking forward to my spanish adventure!

I'm from Madrid so I can give you tips.
Hey for everyone, there is no better place in the world, to party than Spain, and we do it in a totally different way(in soul at least hehe). I know Madrid is not Ibiza, but we are Spain, so you have parties everyday in many places. You can find, any kind of club, bar whatever; or typical from here you can do a botellon, or just go to a macroparty in any town.
For shopping, it depends what kind of shop you like. For the Americans, now buying in Europe isnt that good, so...but we have like hundreds of Zara and all its group stores like MAssimo Dutti, Bershka etc...and they are way cheaper than in other countries. Then you have Mango Primark, H&M and all that kind of stores.
For the people that doesnt like Zara and dont want to spend like hundreds on big designers, you may go around Fuencarral street and Chueca where you can find many minor designers, and some locals, and in Augusto Figueroa street, many shoe shops, although shoes are usually very nice and good quality in any store in MAdrid. Then you have a MAnolo Blahnik store as well, as he is from Spain, but the price is the same than in other countries.
If you have more questions, ask me and I would answer.

Ok, in Madrid you can go to Fuencarral, there are alot of shops like diesel, replay... and also shops like mango (also mango outlet), blanco... in the surrounding area is chueca,the gay neighborhood, with shoe stores, and multi-brand shops, it's a really cool district. you can go to gran via too, there are shops like zara, h&m, bershka, sfera...
if you want spanish design, you should go to jorge juan street, in sub stop Velazquez (the brown line). Have fun shopping!

I also recommend Fuencarral, it has lost some of its old alternative charm but it´s still worth a visit.
Kling is in:
C/ Buenavista 24
28012 Madrid
915 398 491
Closest Subway Stop: Lavapies (a nice area these days too)

Please have a look at the map.

i really like Noviciado street (Subway stop: San bernardo, line 2, the red one), it has really cool shops, like Peseta. I like it more than Fuencarral, because it's more authentic now than Fuencarral.

What's Monica Cruz's store called? What does she sell?

Anyone knows good places for under 18 people (nightlife)?

Any place for over 18 shopuld be fine, in most places (except some discos) they don´t care if you´re younger than 18 or not. Around Plaza Dos de Mayo you can find Via Lactea and Tupperware (in case they´re still there, a couple of years since my last time).

Salamanca is the area for brand shopping ; there is a Jimmy Choo store, Chanel etc etc.
Puerto del Sol, Calle de Princesa and Gran Via are the main shopping streets/area's!
