Sherry Bar, Madrid
Thanks to Astrid and Marcus for sharing their fabulous Spain travels with us:
“We spent a little while looking for this place since it came up a lot in our Madrid research. It was well worth it. La Venencia is definitely a taste of old-world Madrid. They only server sherry on draft from large wood casks. The decor is authentically rustic with dusty old bottles and a chalkboard to tally up your orders.
It’s a great place to explore sherry while you eat olives near their fireplace and get closely monitored by the resident black cat.
One of our favorites was the dry Oloroso, which had a smoky vanilla flavor. We wish there was a place like it in New York, but for now it’s one of the many places we’ll want to go back to Madrid for.”
