    An outstanding late dinner at this wonderful bar beneath Jaleo. Extremely innovative bar menu with over the top cocktails. The Andres and Cooper is amazing and a foodie delight. Limited but great wine choices. Pintxos are classics on overdrive. The most amazing croquettas I’ve ever had. And pig ears. Crispy and unctuous and very Madrid. Can’t say enough about the staff. Friendly. Fun. And expert guides in helping me select my experience. And appreciate chef coming out to say hello.

    I came during their social hour, which is listed on their website with its own menu. They charged me regular prices and never mentioned or presented the social hour menu. They left my dirty plate on the bar for a good 30 minutes and the people that got seated next to me had to look at it the whole time also. My drank sat empty for 20 minutes. The bartender spent most of her time talking to another patron at the bar. I told the bartender who presented my check about the social hour and being overcharged. He offered another drink and ‘sorry about that’ never offered to re do my check for the correct amount. So I overpaid and I’ll never return.

    Loved this bar. Hidden away downstairs under the restaurant has a feel of exclusivity. Excellent bar staff. Drinks were outstanding - the menu is great. We had the Ibérica ham mix and it was delicious. Very good quality food.

    Everything was perfect except our first interaction with the host. We asked if there was availability for our group of 4 and were told that the space was fully booked with no possibility to wait. Though we were able to join the wait on open table and were seated in 10 mins. The rudeness by the host was not just strange but seemed to suggest that our business was not desired.

    Speakeasy space beneath the larger Jaleo is worth finding. Tremendous craft cocktail selection made with superior ingredients by skilled mixologists. I thoroughly enjoyed “around the world in 80 days” with its smoky mescal and savory sherry and sake. Food revolves around iberico pork and it’s all deliciousness. The belota is worthy of the price and the selection of iberico cured meats paired with a palo cortado sherry was bliss. Best croquettas I’ve ever had and the pig ears topped off a delicious night. Jaime I brandy is stellar and rare stuff Only quibble is that the viura was served a bit too cold for my liking… Service was outstanding from start to finish

    Food very good. Great waiter. Dark interior not to my liking. Feels like a friends finished basement. Prices high for what you get.
