The Cafe Comercial from the glorieta de Bilbao,closed since July 2015 will reopen as a bar-restaurant according to info in El Mundo newspaper.
The new owner still awaiting the ok from city hall but it seems inevitable will be the Grupo El Escondite

of course the architecture of Cafe Comercial will remain the same, cannot be change.
Finally,history will be back to Madrid at least on one Café !

Some of the places I miss in Madrid can't be brought back, Madrid Rock on Gran Via is one. Record stores are almost over. Petra's International Bookstore is gone. I used to go there on my first day in Madrid. I haven't been to Madrid since 2012. Most of the big movie palaces are gone if not all of them. Cine Dore is still operating, thank goodness.

yes of course many are gone, heck if I go back to remember all that were there in 1970 to now it will take another website of writings.
However, Cafe Comercial opened in 1887 and closed in 2015 is a rare beauty to be back even with a different name and menu.

and yes Cine Dore still there saw it on my trip last March'16. I still have Docamar (1963) and still going, but SEPU ,SIMAGO stores are gone ....

I just came back from two weeks all over Castille Leon and la Mancha as well as Valencia and Madrid visit twice. Great to still see some old memories standing like San Ginés ::)
