We are fans of Mahou

One of the things that makes Madrid so special is the custom of meeting friends for a caña. And being Madrid, the caña will undoubtedly be a Mahou.

 

 

Many Spanish celebrities participated in this new Mahou ad campaign. Actors Clara Lago and Dani Rovira, the protagonists of the highest grossing Spanish filmOcho apellidos vascos” discuss their love of Mahou with actress Marta Etura. Athletes Iker Casillas, Koke, Sergio Llull, Sergio Rodriguez, Isco,also talk about their enjoyment of Mahou. Star chef David Muñoz and iconic restauranteur Lucio are fans too. Singers Alaska y Mario Vaquerizo, Rosevinge, Leiva and Loquillo who provides the soundtrack “Feo, Fuerte y Formal” to the enjoyable video.

If there is a beer you can find in almost all bars in Madrid, that is Mahou. The beer has become one of the symbols of the city.

StreetXO

Located in the Gourmet Experience of El Corte Ingles Callao (Floor 9), StreetXO is characterized by the originality of its fusion cuisine.

The small bar area is usually full and you have to wait to sit about 15 minutes. Disco music blasts in the background and the cooks explain over the din each dish being served. The atmosphere is young and frenetic.
