This old churrería in the center of Madrid has become ‘Jaleo’, the new fashionable restaurant, and like everything that Guille García-Hoz does, it is full of good vibes. Come and see!
“Jaleo was a churrería that had two terraced premises with a different decoration in each one, to which we had to give unity in the quickest way possible,” says Guille García-Hoz. He was in charge of reforming both the interior design and the concept of this new restaurant in the center of the capital **. And he had an inspiration worthy of that Madrid of the Austrias that so characterizes the old spaces of the High Street: its moldings.
They observed them, they appreciated them, they replicated them in the other two contiguous premises and updated them by painting them in a semi dark blue that, since then, would reign in the whole environment. “To reduce the weight and modernize the style of the grinding was combined with wallpaper and a warm and dim lighting that achieves a perfect atmosphere also for night events,” explains Guille.
And that’s how all the rest of the elements that work wonders in the new premises were concretized: vinyl flooring with wood effect in three tones, a grill painted in gold and combined with the railing that separates rooms, black and white tile under a full shelf of green plants and a red neon with the name of the restaurant. Or, what is the same, a perfect combination of elements that reminds of a French brasserie with a lot of personality and that modern and irreverent touch that is always present in Guille’s projects.
The funny thing, he tells us, “that still works like the churrería of a lifetime, but also serves lunch and dinner and is the place we like to find when we go out to enjoy.”
