Is it Friday and are weekend appetisers already on your mind? We’d be lying if we told you we hadn’t spent the past week thinking about that. You most probably have your list of favourite bars in the city, which we think is great! If you’re also going to be travelling around Spain this summer, we can recommend the following selection of the best tapas bars for you to check out (we’re sure there are many other good ones out there).

Let’s start our tour in the capital. If you fancy spending a few days around Madrid, we recommend you set some time aside and drop in at Casa Labra. This tavern, which is over a hundred years old, is a Mecca for fans of the traditional appetisers. Classic cod recipes are the strong point.

As a technological flag-by-flag homage, this bar in Salamanca has featured a lot over the past few months. Its eye-catching décor and select wine list have made it one of the most frequented establishments in the vicinity of Salamanca’s Plaza Mayor.

We’re heading south to check out one of Spain’s loveliest cities. Stop off between the Paseo de los Tristes and the Alhambra to enjoy tapas at Los Diamantes. Remember, as it happens in many other cities, the tapa comes for free with your drink. A veritable treat that is not expensive!
