Feel the true American university spirit without leaving Madrid at Beer Pong Madrid. Go with your group of friends and enjoy a day of games and beers.
Beer pong is an activity that has become fashionable in recent years in Spain and is a series of games whose objective is to frame ping pong balls inside glasses full of beer. Glass where the ball lands, glass that your opponent has to drink.
It is a different way, different from staying with your group to have a beer in any bar in the city.

A full day of tricks and illusions, stop by the Museum of Illusions with your friends, family or partner and be surprised by the best mental deceptions.

The Sala Equis is an innovative concept of what we know as a movie theater. Focused on the diffusion of cinema and the fight not to lose the tradition of going to see movies in theaters as a social act.
In the Sala Equis you can enjoy both current films and classics while having something to eat. From an omelette skewer in the purest Spanish style to a salmon poke if you feel a little more foodie.
The prices are not excessively expensive for the great experience that is to visit this popular room.
