The Triball project
The area known as Triángulo de Ballesta is a totally rehabilitated neighborhood that strives to be more than just a shopping area, as it aims to be an area full of fresh and innovative ideas.
The old shops have given way to new creators and emerging designers. Clothing stores, accessories, decoration and creative gastronomic proposals, everything has a place in Triball.
Chueca, a shopping rainbow
Very close to the Triball neighborhood, we find Chueca. This central gay district of Madrid is one of the most cosmopolitan and avant-garde of the capital. You can find gifts, clothing, accessories, gay-themed accessories ....
Also emerging in the neighborhood are new concept stores with multifunctional spaces, where you can find delicatessen products from all over the world, along with the latest fashion trends or have a glass of Moët & Chandon. All in one place.
Las Salesas: an alternative haute couture corner
Nearby is the Salesas area, where you will find an area of haute couture, but with more alternative airs.
In this neighborhood you will find decoration stores and designer boutiques of young fashion talents that coexist with stores like Devota y Lomba that have set the trend of the neighborhood.
Being in the forefront demands continuous updating, and the organization of all kind of events. Check our shopping agenda and do not miss anything.
For example, the Fashion Night Out, since 2009, during one night brings the best sales in a fashion and luxury environment. The Nómada Market is another event that gives the opportunity to independent designers to trade with their designs in a fair organized in Chamartín station.
