- 1 [dead link] Bacchus, Avda Moratalaz, 141 (Posterior) (Metro: Vinateros or Artilleros), ☏ , ✉ email@example.com. Daily 09:00-02:00. Right in the middle of Lonja, an area filled with places to dine and drink. It is still close enough to city centre but offers a more relaxed ambience, making it one especially suitable for families, though all types of customers can be encountered. Bacchus offers a mixture of innovative and traditional-style tapas. Very good though expensive wine list. It can get very busy on weekends. Nice outside seating area makes up for the fact that inside it is rather small and, in traditional tapas-bar style, somewhat littered.
