Young Madrid comes alive in this plaza.
It has great energy and is full of cafes and bars.
The focal point is the "Me" Hotel by Melia that dominates with its neon purple exterior that is so striking.
Visit Plaza Santa Ana after midnight when it really comes alive.Recommended for:

very popular with tourists due to the concentration of theatres, bars, restaurants and nightspots - is what it is today thanks to Álvarez Gato, a state official and Carlos V's butler, who purchased land near the plaza del Arrabal, today the Plaza Mayor.

A quaint plaza in the heart of Madrid. During the summer it has lots of terrazas to have lunch or dinner. Don't forget to watch your bags (i.e. hold them in your lap), however, due to the many pickpockets.

Plazas are awesome and I don't know why we don't have more in the U.S. (but we should). Check out this plaza near Puerta del Sol for drinks or even dinner. It's one of the prettiest in Madrid and has great bars and restaurants in every direction. Another option for the evening is to make like the locals and wait for the beer vendors to come around carrying plastic bags and grab a beer for 1 euro then drink in packs down the side streets. The plaza is also a good spot to meet before heading down the bar filled street, calle huertas.
