National Geographic store in Madrid - New Menu

national geographic party in madrid

Although the National Geographic Store is in Madrid since 2010, I had never visited it simply because I did not know about its existence. It was a nice surprise to be invited to the renewal presentation party that took place on Thursday. And even more surprising to realize that this huge space has nothing to envy to the London National Geographic Store, it is even better! Specially the restaurant and its new menu.

With good criteria, they have developed a multicultural menu, including Italian, Indian, Japanese and Mexican cuisine. For all tastes and wishes!!! So while you do your shopping or take a break when visiting the Gran Vía, you can have a snack, a complete lunch or enjoy some cocktails. Specially tailored for the Urban Traveller!

Do not miss their interesting agenda of events and conferences with people as relevant as Jane Goodall! (she came in February).

The party was very well organized (incredibly crowded) and we enjoyed a lot having little bites from Italy and Mexico and watching the African dancers and musicians.

And as a last curiosity, I found (and happily bought) my favourite compilation of music: PUTUMAYO World Music. I am a collector since I discovered them in the States but did not know I could find them in Madrid. Very happy with my Acoustic Café and Bossa Nova compilations!!!

Aunque la tienda de National Geographic existe en Madrid desde 2010, nunca la había visitado, básicamente porque no sabía de su existencia. Fue una agradable sorpresa que nos invitaran a la fiesta para presentar su nuevo menú. Y aún más sorprendente constatar que este gran espacio no tiene nada que envidiar a la National Geographic Store de Londres, vamos que es incluso mejor. Especialmente el restaurante y su nuevo menú.

Con muy buen criterio, han desarrollado un menú multicultural, incluyendo cocina italiana, india, japonesa y mexicana. Para todos los gustos y deseos! Así que mientras uno hace sus compras o se toma un descanso en su visita de la Gran Vía, se puede tomar un aperitivo, una comida completa o un cóctel. Como ellos dicen se ha diseñado para el viajero urbano!

No te pierdas su interesante agenda de eventos y conferencias con gente tan relevante como Jane Goodall! (que vino en febrero, pena no haberlo sabido).

La fiesta estuvo muy bien organizada (muy concurrida) y disfrutamos mucho con pequeños platos de Italia y México y viendo a los bailarines y músicos africanos.

Y como última curiosidad, encontré (y felizmente compré) mi colección de música favorita: PUTUMAYO World Music. Los colecciono desde que los descubrí en los Estados Unidos, pero no sabía que se podían encontrar en Madrid. Estoy feliz con mis CDs Acoustic Café y Bossa Nova!
