Clearly we love vintage. It fascinates us! When you’re a teenager, you want to be as different as possible from the older generations, but through adulthood we often return, often asking to borrow or keep their trinkets and clothing. Cuisine is no exception. At Casa Camacho we even drink their favorite drink: the yayo, composed of gin, vermouth and gaseosa (a sweet soda water). Jesus, Santiago and Miguel Gonzalez Pérez are three brothers from Sanabria, and are the heirs of the bar which is located in Malasaña. Casa Camacho opened in 1929 and still holds the spirit and style of the Spanish 20s. Basically a monument in Madrid, the taps and the bar are original, even the bottles that decorate the walls hold the dust from the years past. For snacks, salted anchovies, boquerones, bonito with peppers, among many other bar foods. Nothing fancy, but perfect to accompany a drink. The clientele is usually from the neighborhood, and if you live there, you will be too.
