Rul’s Bar. Calle de la Esperanza 8. Madrid

This old favorite has recently undergone a refit, and is all the worse for it. From being a great little stand-up space (in more than a dozen visits I have never sat down on their eight bar stools) with perfectly acceptable 3€ mojitos – also available in a much sweeter strawberry flavour – it has been transformed into a pastel-walled toyless crèche that happens to serve a drink or two and maybe play some music if anyone dares accept the invitation to select something on spotify.
We really shouldn’t mourn the loss of a bar in a city like Madrid, but many of us were fond of this place and used it as the reliable go-between a Lavapies curry house and a late late nightspot such as La Candela.
RIP Rul’s bar, un bar chulo hasta Abril 2012
