Without a known job and a Varon Dandy odor, this man was born in the 1940’s into a family of Madrid lineage. The man described is Ciriaco Jiménez Brown, the person who gave name to this cocktail bar that is situated in the Lavapiés neighborhood; a bar that invites all to sit and enjoy a good drink. This is a space that follows the philosophy that Ciriaco would follow: comfort, color, and conversation.
Behind Ciriaco is Goyo Solórzano, who is full of art, a lover of the Lavapiés neighborhood, and that had a clear concept: a liquor bar that welcomes both the nostalgic grandparents and young modern-agers that want a good place to drink without the need to dance.
The entrance of Ciriaco definitely calls people’s attention. The front door takes you to a white space, decorated with distractions that makes you wonder where to enter. The second door is the entrance into a very special place, a place that will not leave you indifferent.
Ciriaco Brown’s aesthetic is eclectic, similar to what one’s grandma might have. This place is decorated with rooms of Raastro Madrid; rooms that have been readapted and combined to obtain a warm atmosphere. All the decoration have been well thought out to tell a story. The photographs, discs, and books adorn each corner of Ceriaco Brown providing a unique and original identity to this cocktail bar.
In Ceriaco Brown you can drink everything that is drinkable and accompany it with a good conversation but do not come looking for something to eat. Nonetheless, here you can drink lifelong drinks, those you drank and that your grandparents keep drinking as well as a good gin tonic, mojito or daiquiri.
Ciriaco Brown as a local bar that is made for people to go out, converse, hangout and enjoy. Sitting with your friends and staying until 5 in the morning enjoying a good conversation is a great way to visit. This is a space that seeks to give all the prominence to the drinks and for those who wish to enter a peculiar and characteristic bar.
