The 5 Coolest Neighborhoods Around the World
Embajadores in Madrid was today revealed as the world’s coolest neighbourhood right now.


1. Embajadores, Madrid
Madrid’s Embajadores tops the list as the world’s coolest neighbourhood right now with its exciting nightlife and fabulous food, street art and high culture. This is where people from near and far live side by side, cooking up a bustling cultural life. To the north, Plaza Tirso de Molina is home to florists by day, and at night fills with revellers queuing to get into Medias Puri, the city’s club of the moment. To the south are two huge cultural centres, Tabacalera and La Casa Encendida. In Embajadores, Visitors can dine on divine Moroccan lamb tagine for an absurdly low price or Indian specialities served atop a flowery oilcloth and relax with a cocktail in the legendary Sala Equis, a former adult cinema that is now a drinking hole or visit The Rastro open air flea market that takes place between the plaza del Cascorro and the Ronda de Toledo on Sundays. INVESTOR´S TIP: Embajadores is a Madrid section very good for investors looking for to buy rental property and make money on the side or like vacation home says Marta Owsianik Real Estate manager.
