The old Café of the Corte Inglés in Plaza de Callao underwent a great change a few years ago and has been completely renovated, transforming itself into the current ¡ Gourmet Experience Gran Vía !
If you decide to visit the Spanish capital, we recommend that this site be between your list of essentials!
It is located on the ninth floor of the building of the Corte Inglés and the views as you can imagine, are breath-taking! From this venue you can enjoy wonderful views from the Gran Vía to Plaza España, as well as the characteristic Schweppes brand sign, among other locations in the capital.
In addition, this terrace is open all year round, which is great because in the winter time you will not have to worry about getting a cold since you can enjoy some wonderful stoves outside. In any case, you can always stay inside, where you can continue enjoying these views as there are large clear windows. You must be quick and punctual because no reservations are allowed, its first come first served. However, the good news is that the food can be enjoyed both in the bars where you purchased it but also at any other bars as well as the tables that are located both in the centre of the plant and on the outside terrace.
This venue houses high level, avant-garde gastronomy in which you can enjoy both a fresh ice cream, a delicious cocktail or different types of food if you want to try a little of everything in the same day or go for a different option each time you go there. What’s even better is knowing that they have very reasonable prices for all budgets. You will find spaces such as La Máquina, Harina, Hamburguesa Nostra, Central Mexicana… among others. You can have anything ranging from a coffee, eat, have a delicious ice cream, nibble something, dine or simply have a cocktail or a glass of champagne as its open from 10 am to 24 am.
And if you are too full but don’t want to miss out on tasting something, you do not have to worry! Because Gourmet also has its own store where you can buy various products such as wine, sweets, cheeses, sauces, etc.
