In today’s post, we are going to make things easier for you and ensure you get to experience the best plans and activities. Ready? Check out these 4 unique things to do in Madrid in August, they’re fun and original! 

An ice bar to combat the heat

The vast majority of us still dream with going to one of those famous and dreamy ice bars, and those who have already been to one will surely want to go to Madrid’s one too. 

As its name indicates, it is, literally, an ice bar. You know, made entirely from ice. You sit on ice, you are surrounded by ice and drinks are served in, well, iced glasses. Ice Bar Madrid is located in a privileged spot, a mere 300 metres away from the Puerta del Sol. This is ideal since it makes it even easier to combine this refreshing plan with a tourist route around the city too. Do note that the month of August is a particularly popular time to go to the ice bar.

August calls for playing detectives

Have you ever been to an Escape Room? Our top 4 unique plans in Madrid in August would definitely be incomplete without including a visit to one of these mysterious rooms in the city centre. If you are in for a different experience in the capital with your partner, family or friends, this is a great idea. Plus, it is ideal to enjoy in August since this way we can enjoy ourselves and escape the summer heat during the most critical hours too.

The idea here is to get locked up inside a themed room for about 60 minutes. During that time, you have to find and solve certain clues and games in order to find the way out of the room before time runs out. It is a fun-filled and smile-assured plan in Madrid!

Some of the best Escape Rooms in Madrid are the two Fox in A Box ones: one in Cuesta Santo Domingo and the other in the Calle Infantas. The first establishment offers three mysterious rooms: Madrid Central Bank, Prison Break and Asesino del Zodiaco (“the Zodiac assassin”). The second one, located in Infantas street, has two: the Bunker and the Laboratorio Zombie (“Zombie lab”). Other fantastic escape rooms in the city are Escape Room Madrid and Escape College Madrid.

A night of shooting stars in Madrid

Summer is a time to enjoy unforgettable nights, and what better plan than to do so along with the beautiful shooting stars in Madrid. Every year, between the 11th and the 13th of August more or less, people can watch the renowned “Lágrimas de San Lorenzo” (Saint Lorenzo’s tears”) swiftly cross the sky of Madrid. As they do, people are to make a wish, of course. This a unique, magical and romantic plan in Madrid in August, no doubt!

“Cibeles de Cine” film nights in Madrid

Do you like films? And cinema? Then this plan was made just for you. As it does every summer, the famous Galería de Cristal in CentroCentro (Plaza de Cibeles, 1) will show, until the 12th of September, over 70 iconic films, such as  “Scarface”, “The Big Lebowski”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and even “A star is born”. 

The Cibeles de Cine films during the month of August will probably be shown at 22:00 hrs. Standard tickets are just 6€, while those including a drink are 12€.
