Modern gallery with amazing views

Founded in 2012, Watdafac is one of the coolest new gallery spaces in Madrid. It's informed by a comic and punk-inspired aesthetic and really embraces DIY and zine culture (something very refreshing in Madrid, a city that can sometimes turn its back on talent that's not already established). It's located on the 6th floor of Gran Via 28, the large building you see as you go up Montera from Sol to Gran Via (right between Fuencarral and Hortaleza Streets). It's a multi-use space that holds release parties and gallery openings which can, in my experience, feel more like a beer-sloshing nightclub than an art gallery, and hosts exhibits from young national and international artists. The gallery is set up like a house, with a kitchen and everything, which is the perfect antidote for that stuffy, quiet feeling that art galleries can sometimes have. Watdafac makes you feel right at home, with the owner entering into friendly conversation, putting on records, smoking at the window, and generally just hanging out.

Aside from the exhibits, Watdafac also has some of the most amazing views of downtown outside of the roof of the Circulo de Bellas Artes. It has a fully balcony overlooking the full stretch of Gran Via with the iconic Schwepps light there in the background. They also have a small store which sells the artworks themselves, records by local labels and artists, zines, and self-published books.

Make sure to follow Watdafac on facebook so you can find out about the new exhibits, parties, and events. It's a really cool place, and lovers of new art or DIY culture in general should definitely check it out!
