| OTHER ZONES OF MADRID||
Chueca is bounded by Calle Barquillo, Calle Hortaleza, the Gran Vía and Calle Alfonso VI. It's among the most authentic and cosmopolitan neighbourhoods downtown. During the 80's it was one of the most active centers of the so-called 'La Movida'. Lately it has become a popular gay haunt. Peppered with lots of bars and clubs, it also has a lot of life during the day, mainly based around the numerous small shops. It continues to be one of the most important meeting points in Madrid's nightlife. Although it has a decadent aspect, it is still quite attractive and has many good and interesting places to eat. On the calles Admirante and Prim in this area one can find some of Madrid's most avant guard fashion and shoe shops.
