Local Tips Pre/Post Game
If you find yourself outside the ground with some time to kill you might want to be around other supporters and locals and have a drink at the Penalti Bar. This burger joint/bar serve up some truly delicious burgers accompanied by fresh beer or soft drinks. A great place to kill your apetite and clench your thirst before the game.
If on the other hand you are feeling peckish, or would rather spend your money on local food, then you can make your way to a number of restaurant. You may be an early eater, or wanting to try to eat at the same time as the locals (which is quite late). Whichever your choice, you can make your way to Lateral, a slick restaurant which serves modern takes on tapas and pinchos, with a wide variety of cocktails and drinks, situated on the Paseo de Castellana, 89.
If you want something slightly less fancy but equally good in quality of food and drinks, check out Gino’s (Paseo de La Castellana, 83). This is a family friendly restaurant with some great kid menus, burgers, refill sodas and an American/Italian diner vibe.
