Where to shop in Madrid

A Madrid shopping trip is an exercise in restraint! With so much on offer, from international fashion houses to locally owned boutiques, it can prove difficult to keep your credit card in your wallet. Almost everything is at your fingertips. Clothes, shoes, souvenirs, and of course wine for all styles, tastes and prices are plentiful and easily accessible. Charming avenues, bustling main streets and city squares are full of surprises. Luckily for those in the mood to shop at any time, shops are usually open until 10pm – perfect for a little bit of after-dinner retail therapy.

Salamanca

One of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city centre, Salamanca is the spot to discover sophisticated restaurants, fashionable bars, and luxury retailers. The main avenues are filled with designer label stores and high-end fashion international retailers. Surrounding streets and laneways are the best place to shop boutique. The garments and goods found here are often exclusive to Madrid.

Gran Via

One of Madrid's main avenues, Gran Via is often compared to New York City's Times Square. The mismatch of stunning architecture and grand theatres and cinemas make this Madrid's major entertainment precinct. World-renowned retailers also call the avenue home, making the pedestrian-friendly street very popular with tourists. Gran Via is also famous for its dazzling (and rather expensive) jewellery shops.
