El Born & Malasaña, the neubau-like hip places in Spain
Malasaña and El Born are two unique and hip places in Spain, located in Madrid and Barcelona.
The two areas are full of good vibrations, creativity and trendy vibes. Here you can find the best little cafés, inspiring shops and tasty tapas bars, as well as cool locations for cocktails and good music at night.
The Spanish equivalent of the 7th district Neubau area, these two areas are a source of inspiration for neubau eyewear.
A few months ago, we had the opportunity to meet some fashion bloggers from Barcelona and Madrid who are influencing the Spanish creative scene. We wanted to present them our new brand, talk about our philosophy and introduce them to our stylish glasses!
In Barcelona, we organized casual and friendly meetings in El Born with 5 ‘it bloggers,’ to get to know them in a more personal way: @rosaframbuesa, @dafnepatruno, @styleinLima, @silviaboschblog and @viewsbyLaura. During these meetings we walked the streets of the young and cool neighbourhood and took some photos in the most special locations of El Born.
In Madrid we explored area of Malasaña where we met with 9 local fashion influencers: @chic_adicta, @cover_couple, @majohbenedetti, @sublimepebblesv, @luceral, @olieteworldblog, @agostinasaracco, @hablamosdemoda_ and @dostaconesparamiarmario.
We chose Malpica Café to celebrate with a fresh and cosy brunch, before the photo shoot around the Malasaña streets. This bar is very comfortable and has a cool “bohemian chic” style. It’s the perfect location if you want to spend some quality time with good coffee and friends!
We really enjoyed meeting all of our Spanish inspirational bloggers and had a great time discovering the two alternative and modern areas of both Barcelona and Madrid! If you happen to be in either one of the Spanish cities, make sure to have a stroll through the little streets of El Born or Malasana to discover secret locations and hidden bars. Oh and don’t forget to have a look at those beautiful bloggers’ accounts for inspiration!
