Romantic things to do in Madrid

Cooking together

Cooking can be a fun and delightful experience when shared with others. If you are about to have your second or third date, taking a cooking workshop together can be a way to break the ice, while you bond and share laughs.

If you have a long time partner, learning new skills so you can then surprise each other with special dinners can also help things romantic. There are plenty of cooking classes and workshops in Madrid. Here are a few places where you can take them:

Going to the Opera

Who better to share the beauty and artistry of an opera than your better half? Theatres like Teatro Real (Plaza Isabel II), Reina Victoria (Carrera de S. Jerónimo, 20), and Teatros del Canal (Calle de Cea Bermúdez, 1) are excellent venues to go for an opera show.

Have a sexy escapade

If you want to spice up your relationship, how about taking the afternoon or night off for a couple of hours of naughtiness at a love hotel? Love hotels are establishments that were created to offer people the possibility of renting a room for a very short stay, ranging from one hour to one night.

Most love hotels have rooms with sensual decoration that are rented for one to three hours. Here are some of Madrid’s love hotels:

  • Luxtal, Calle de Juan Ramón Jiménez, 8 (neighbourhood of Hispanoamerica)
  • LOOB Av. Descubrimientos, 38
  • Zouk Hotel, Carrer Isaac Newton, 2

Share a relaxing experience

Sharing a relaxing activity can be a great way to bond with your better half.

You can enjoy a jacuzzi session for two at Auditorium Spa (Calle de Suero de Quiñones, 22), a spa circuit with pool, sauna and aromatherapy at Caroli Health Club-Chamberi (Calle Miguel Ángel, 29), or a couples massage at Kenina Thai Massage (Avenida de Concha Espina 18).

Watch a romantic movie

When you are in a relationship, watching a romantic movie with your partner can be a wonderful experience. Hold hands, share popcorn and a couple of kisses to the sound of the romantic soundtrack. Here are a couple of movie theatres in Madrid that show movies in English:

  • Cines Princesa Calle Princesa, 3 (district of Arguelles)
  • Cinesa Manoteras Avenida de Manoteras, 40 (district of Hortaleza)
  • Circulo de Bellas Artes de Madrid, Carrer de Alcalá, 42 (district of Cortes)
