2 Days in Madrid - what to do?

Hello - hoping for some advice/recommendations. In October, on our way back from our honeymoon in Tenerife, we will be staying in Madrid for 2 days/nights at the Melia Madrid Princesa. We want to cram as much "touristy" stuff in 2 days as we can, as well as visit great restaurants and pubs relatively close to the hotel. If anyone out there had any recommendations that would be great! Ideally - what to do during the day, and then a few restaurants and bars/pubs, (not clubs) within walking distance to the hotel. Thanks in advance!

Some tips nearby the Meliá Madrid Princesa (within walking distance):

Two nice cafes at early evening (close each other): El Jardín Secreto on Calle de San Bernardino # 22 (White Russian cocktail) and Mür on Plaza de Cristino Martos 2.

Terry:

Within walking distance is the Plaza de España. The Cerralbo Museum is a beautiful museum also nearby.

You'd have to be selective and if it's 2 full days, as for sites, I'd recommend Thyssen Museum and El Retiro Park. Outside of that, enjoy the shopping (which Madrid has great areas for shopping) and sampling tapas bars or mercados.

Wander around Madrid starting at Plaza Cibeles - my favorite spot in the city, I adore the statue. Plenty of museums around there, if you plan out the free times you can hit almost all of them.

Santa Ana or Plaza Mayor for food; and the oldest restaurant in the world is also in Madrid (pretty pricy, though) so you could go there for a cool story.

Nightlife: if you want to go out to a club or just a bar, walk through any plaza in Madrid and you'll be bombarded with club promoters. Pick your poison!
