Matador, Madrid (Spain)

Opened as a physical incarnation of the annual Spanish magazine Matador, this haven of a members’ club has a strong emphasis on culture and is located in an original, restored 19th-century dwelling, set around a peaceful garden. In-the-know and arty Madrileños stop by for the restaurant, which offers exquisite takes on Spanish classics, the delightful cocktail bar, where renowned bartenders take up residencies, the cinema, library and art exhibitions.
