Hermos y Malditos madrid

I’ve discovered Hermos y Malditos as soon as their Instagram profile was opened. Probably one of the most interesting Instagram feed I’ve ever seen. It was clear to me that I would love the place. Reading a bit more about the cocktail bar I also discovered the cocktail menu had one super hipster mixology tresure called «Wes Anderson».

Obviously yesterday when I finally had the chance to go there I took a quick look at the menu and ordered cocktail named as one of my favourite movie director. The very kind barman told me that due to the decision of creating this Scott Fitzgerald atmosphere, this key cocktail was renamed as the famous writer. Hermos y Malditos is infact the spanish version of the very renowned «The Beautiful and Damded».

Well, the cocktail was very good, and I also appreciate the candies and the still water as soon as I sat down to the blue velvet sofa (yes, another Director’s quote, Mr. David Lynch).

This is a very unique location, the music with the deejay was perfect, the design of the cocktail room was perfect. I didn’t have my Nikon Camera with me, so all the pictures were taken with my new mobile phone. I am getting used to it, and was a bit tipsy because of the cocktail, but the result is quite good for a Sony XZ.

[This is not a Spanish Restaurant, it’s a gratitude post about an unexpected present I’ve received yesterday]

Spending the xmas Holidays away from home is kind of weird, probably the first time, than it should become more easy.

You know I bought my first serious camera during these holidays, and it was an Amazing xmas present for myself. But Yesterday a courier rang my door with a mystery pack.

Two bottles of Wine were included and a series of instructions on how to serve them properly.

The real deal was the name of the producer, I mean the wine producer, it was called like me, Diana. I guess nothing was left to chance.

Even the name of this first red win was chosen with care. The description of it states:

BONARDA  – The Faithful Companion – Bosco del pozzo
The purple notes of the Croatina grape have developed into a ruby red. We can taste the berries, in particular, blackberries. It now has a more robust body, and there is a persistent aftertaste. Ripa del Ciliegio shows how the most traditional grape of the Oltrepò, usually used for sparkling wines, can also express itself perfectly in this still wine, producing something original and of stature. It is the ideal companion to those more sophisticated dishes.

I know, I am very lucky to have friends like this, and miss a lot the weekends spent together hiking.

 

Madrid is a big city, and like the internet you can find everything and you can find nothing.

So the question is:

why should this blog be different than all the others giving advices around the city, answering to all your questions?

The reason is simple: Diana never disappointed with her suggestions in all the cities she has lived in. Her friends told her hundreds of time «Why don’t you get a blog?» but in the end she preferred to suggest her friends one to one. A bit time consuming.

She is a freelance professional, working on social media, writing contents all day long, with a network of other professionals working remotely in different part of the world. Eventually opening a blog and an Instagram account was something natural for her, finally getting her own space.

Like the Greek goddess of the hunt, the moon, and nature, MadriDiana favourite job is to hunt the coolest places in town, not the one you’ll find in the most famous travel guides, but the once you would receive from your closest friend.
