HEMINGWAY IN LA ALEMANA
In the ninety-fifties the American author and Nobel laureate Ernest Hemingway - who had previously been in Spain in 1937 and 1938 as a correspondent during the Civil War- returned to Spain, especially to Madrid attracted above all by bullfights.
Of course - how could it be less? - he was also a frequent visitor of La Alemana, a favorite place for having a beer sitting on the table next to the window.
Hemingway himself recalls it in an article published in September 1960 in Life magazine as "a good place to drink beer and coffee," and who also shared a table and drinks with "the most beautiful woman in the world" and Luis Miguel Dominguín.
