Madrid’s sophisticated side makes it a hidden gem waiting to be discovered on every street. It is a gemstone as rare as Bulgari’s, who’s presenting some of its best pieces in the glamorous exhibition Bulgari y Roma at the Museo Thyssen (Paseo del Prado, 8).

This event reviews the iconic brand’s trajectory through 145 spectacular pieces worn by Elizabeth Taylor, Anna Magnani or Baroness Thyssen. And as a backdrop of such treasures, the city of Rome: a source of inspiration for Bulgari. Evidently, classical art has had a significant influence on the design of its most emblematic jewelry, which is apparent in the paintings from the Vatican Museum, from private collections or the Museum of Rome. The exhibition Bulgari y Roma will take us to a world of luxury but accessible from the cozy Flat Sweet Home Prado Apartment nearby.

Far from the jet set represented by Bulgari is ClimaX, a play that reviews existential questions like loneliness or heartbreak with a touch of humor. This comedy, at the teatro Alfil (calle Pez, 10), is a tribute to life and its pleasures, and it’s only a few steps away from your Flat Sweet Home Malasaña.

And speaking of plays, 666 is another plea full of life. This work by the prestigious group Yllana, also on the stage of the teatro Alfil, uses dark humor to depict the last days of a man on death row. Far from being a drama, this comedy will make you cry with laughter with its hilarious display of lust for life.


In the music department, the Murcia band Neuman plays some of the most enigmatic music, and its four records are a tribute to the most elegant and talented sounds in the Spanish rock scene. Enjoy the perfect soundtrack for your visit to Madrid, as Paco Roman’s voice wraps you with lyrics full of illusions and delusions. Watch this band take over with good music Joy Eslava (Calle Arenal, 11) on December 15, a few steps from your bright Flat Sweet Home Calle Mayor Apartment. 

If you’re more into shopping, you’ll find the most exclusive and less conventional gifts at the Circulo de Bellas Artes (calle Alcalá, 42) on December 17 and 18. Here, you’ll find the city’s most refined style at the Mercado de Diseño X-mas Fun, where some of the best local designers will show us a glimpse of the fashion of tomorrow. Brands like David Delfin, Moderna de Pueblo, El Chico Llama, Beatnik Shoes, Aventuras literarias, along with another 100 couturiers will take your Christmas shopping cart to the next level.


Furthermore, on Saturday 17, from 11 p.m., the market opens its doors to the best local electronic music with Cora Novoa and other DJs. There can’t be a better finishing touch to a most suggestive weekend. Madrid is getting ready for Christmas by making sure you have the best time from the moment you arrive at your elegant and comfortable Flat Sweet Home.

Things to do


Walking around Madrid in late November is a blessing that will let you discover its fascinating street culture and its colossal architecture. However, the city is also open to exploring other cultures beyond its fascinating history. For this reason, we suggest a look at the best of Indian culture in The Apu Trilogy at the magical Círculo de Bellas Artes (calle Alcalá, 42). Just like the character from The Simpsons, these three films show you the most sympathetic, dramatic face of daily life fascinating India. Its colorful, lively landscapes, will stay with you on your way back to your Flat Sweet Home Gran Vía Apartment.

District Culture

You can take an even closer look at Indian culture in the steep streets of the multicultural district of Lavapies. And afterward, immerse yourself in La Cocina, a play by the great Sergio Peris Mencheta at the avant-garde teatro Valle – Inclán (Valencia Street, 1). His libretto transforms the original story by Arnold Wesker into a choral symphony where dance tells the story of a restaurant. A fusion of arts and cultures that will keep resounding in your mind when you reach your cozy Flat Sweet Home Prado Apartment.


The districts of Madrid are pure art, and you can see it especially on your nightly walks by the sleepless city center. If you would like to see for yourself how culture transformed Madrid’s districts, we recommend the exhibition Casa-Estudio-Calle-Barrio, a fascinating artistic interpretation that shows how the interaction between the environment and artists such as Tamara Arroyo, Juan Ugalde or Andrea Cenepa generates a catharsis worth admiring. Art lives in the streets, and until January 29 it will also live on the walls of CentroCentro. This exhibition is the perfect excuse to visit the impressive Palacio de Correos on Plaza de Cibeles.

Local culture and international sound

Beyond painting, there is a world in motion that many filmmakers try to capture in this city. For this reason, Madrid offers you several great samples of Spanish short films at Notodofilmfest. These short films cover deep, meaningful subjects that examine the grounds of our existence, and they will be available to you at the Cineteca: a place to enjoy interesting films within the refinement of Matadero on Plaza Legazpi, a cultural space that you cannot miss.

There are many excellent options for a soundtrack to your visit to the city, but the most electrifying are Ocean Colour Scene. The band from Birmingham transformed pop with their album Moseley Shoals 20 years ago; the perfect round figure to honor a whole era at the Riviera on November 30.


Near La Riviera, the popular Madrid nightclub, the Matadero will host a new edition of the Farmers’ market on 26 and 27 November. This gastronomic proposal brings you the tastiest Madrid products made with loving care by local producers, a flavorful farewell to a week where the city shows you its charms beyond your Flat Sweet Home Madrid.
