Summer terraces. It’s time for terraces in Madrid and Spain in general. With the appearance of good weather, it is time for the summer terraces. In Spain the terraces model has been a successful product for years.
In Madrid, coinciding with its ninth anniversary since the opening of the first Arzábal tavern, Álvaro Castellanos and Iván Morales give the starting signal to the season of terraces with the extension of their three proposals.
Arzábal was born on May 6, 2009 in a place without the possibility of a terrace, in which Álvaro Castellanos and Iván Morales offered their scooters to customers to occasionally support their drinks before the tide of customers who demanded space.
Nine years later, they have three spaces with three terraces: Arzábal Retiro, Kirikata and Arzábal Museum, the quintessential terrace that works partially throughout the year and which, starting in May, extends hours and will work every day, the essence of the 100%.
THE TERRACE 365, AN OASIS IN THE HEART OF MADRID
The terrace of Arzábal Museum, which was inaugurated in April 2016, has evolved by leaps and bounds.
Offering in its different stages, more options and better conditions to enjoy the cuisine of Arzábal in terrace format.
More than 700 square meters of terrace divided into the following spaces:
Glazed gazebo, bar area, low tables area and chill out area, without forgetting your grill.
ARZÁBAL RETIRO, THE CLASSIC OF THE RETIREMENT FOR 9 YEARS
When moving the tavern originally from Doctor Castelo Street 2 to Menéndez Pelayo 13, the opportunity was sought to enable a terrace that soon established itself as a point of reference in the gastronomic district of Madrid.
At the end of 2017 Álvaro Castellanos and Iván Morales added to this terrace a covered structure that offered the possibility of enjoying the tapas with Arzábal stamp with rain or cold thanks to its heaters and windows.
KIRIKATA, THE JAPANESE TERRACE OF THE RETIREMENT AREA
At the end of 2017, the Japanese restaurant of Grupo Arzábal moved to the first place where the first Arzábal Group project was born on Doctor Castelo 2 street.
A purely Japanese restaurant with a room and bar in which the protagonist is the sushiman and the daily product, but with the touch and arzolero stamp that defines the group.
One of the novelties of Kirikata is the possibility of enjoying the Japanese cuisine of Grupo Arzábal. In terrace format and a few meters from the Retiro.
“On May 6, 2009, we opened the Arzábal tavern, at number two on Dr. Castelo street in the Madrid retirement district.
The place, fit 6 tables and a bar for 20 people, is a true reflection of our expectations.
A combination of the traditional and the modern serving contemporary cuisine with a classic base. At the beginning of 2010, Árzabal received the Metropolis prize as the revelation restaurant of Madrid 2009. In September 2010 we opened the second Arzabal tavern a few meters from the first.
Arzabal perfectly illustrates a business project reflecting a dream come true. A dream fulfilled successfully in times of recession. ”
