Nearby Argüelles and Chamberí districts, around 30 minutes away by foot. There are several metro stations but I prefer to star from Tribunal (10 line, deep blue) and Malasaña neighborhood (Universidad area), one of the most iconic areas of Madrid but I’m gonna focus just in heavy metal and some rock but if you like you can search in google and discover the amazing, trendy and countercultural scene.
