    The other side of gay Guadalajara
    Yes, it is one of the oldest bars, and it is close to the old bus station, so many commuters will stop by here. If you are interested in local flavors, with no attitude, this is the place to go, but better if you go with somebody that knows the crowd. Not fancy, not a dance club, but many charros, rancheros y macho guys here.

    A starting point in Chueca
    When you go to Chueca in Madrid, there will be so many places to go and you can start here. Friendly crowd of all ages, with provocative conversation. It is small enough to get “arouse” in no time. Don't miss the lower level for a playful time.

    Don't miss it next time you are in PS
    If you like great Chinese food, chic atmosphere, and a good value, this is your place. Excellent pot stickers and tangerine beef, beside many other choices in the menu. Stylish décor makes it memorable. Popular with the gay community in PS. Bar is always crowded and you will see interesting people here.

    A favorite breakfast cafe
    I like the food here. Park Pantry has the best pancakes and the quality of the food is very consistent but menu is not pompous. Think of this like a Denny’s with a little more class. View to the park makes it comfortable for a early morning brunch with family and friends. It is gay-friendly (only).

    The birthplace of the French dip (perhaps)
    When having visitors, I like to make a stop here to see this old-fashioned restaurant, but I have never been lucky to have lunch with my guests. Always crowded! Nevertheless, the ambience brings back memories of the roaring 30's. The menu is very limited and their specialty is French dip Sandwiches. Don’t bring high expectations about taste and quality so you will not be disappointed. Ask for Double-Dip if you want it juicy (you don’t get side dip).

    A casual cafe with a twist.
    Regular customers like to gather here. Mixed crowd, mainly gay, brings that cozy-casual ambience for any group size, resembling a french cafe. The menu has something for everybody and every appetite: from a good selection of salads and soups to a little more elaborated entrée with a twist. Don’t expect anything sophisticated, but you can have a decent and enjoyable meal on a budget. Staff is always friendly and cordial.
