We know what you’re thinking: another cocktail bar popping up in Madrid with a phone box entrance leading to a top-secret room? But let’s be honest: who doesn’t like to pretend they’re a secret agent, walk into a phone box, dial a number and make an unforgettable entrance?
Although there are already a few similar venues, Dilek (which means “desire” in Turkish) has an incredibly exotic Turkish passion to it. They’ve hit the nail on the head with the perfect balance of a perfectly cultured and cosmopolitan atmosphere, brought straight from the Bosphorus.
As for their drinks, it’s true that the price is a little above average for the Madrid scene, but if you’re looking for a speakeasy for a quiet night out with your friends or partner, you really need to visit it!
