There are two El Tigre bars on the same street, and I visited both during my visit to Madrid (my preferred one was the more modern). It is always crowded with all kinds of people - but this allows for the vibrant atmosphere. If you buy a drink, you will get a big plate of tapas. Normally, the tapas include croquettas, patatas bravas, paella and prosciuto/bacon/chorizo on bread - all delicious.
For those on a budget, this can be an awesome way to save money and combine dinner and drinks. For a small beer (€2.50), you can still get a huge plate, so this is the most cost effective way to eat at El Tigre. For a big cup of sangria or mojito, you are looking at €6 with the same sized plate of food.
The service is INCREDIBLE. The bar staff are attentive and so fast. This really is an amazing place to visit when in Madrid, it has the perfect combination of atmosphere and value for money.
