A Rock ‘n Roll travel guide – Madrid

It’s time for another Rock ’n Roll travel guide! This time, we’re taking you to Madrid. Must-sees in the Spanish capital may be a little lesser known than in Barcelona, but this city sure is worth the trip.

You may have heard of the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor or the beautiful Parque del Buen Retiro, or someone might have mentioned shopping at the Gran Via. As always, we’re showing you cool spots you won’t find in a normal travel guide. Madrid has a whole lot to offer to lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktail and tiki!

This is our top 10!

Looking back on 2018

2018… This year flew by like a whirlwind! A whole lot can happen in 365 days and it’s kind of nice to stop and look back for a second. The past year mostly revolved around our The Greaser and the Doll webshop and it definitely paid off: we were able to make a lot of people very happy, we got to visit awesome events and we managed to expand our collection even more!

Of course we were up to more than that. We had a blast during trips to amazing cities, the Doll sewed up a storm and the Greaser discovered the art of Tiki carving.

As always, we worked our socks off in 2018, but it is so worth it! We’re looking back at last year with great pride and we’re beyond thankful for all the support!

A Rock ‘n Roll Travel Guide – Paris

Paris is one of those places everyone should visit, at least once in their life. The view from the Eiffel Tower, a stroll down the Champs-Élysées and admiring the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci at the Louvre are obvious musts when you travel to Paris. However, for lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktails and Tiki, there are a lot of other really cool things to do in Paris!

A Rock ‘n Roll travel guide – Oslo

Oslo is one of those places everyone should visit, at least once in their life. The view from the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, a stroll down the Karl Johans Gate and admiring “The Scream” by Munch at the National Gallery are obvious musts when you travel to Oslo. However, for lovers of Rock ’n Roll, retro, cocktails and Tiki, there are a lot of other really cool things to do in Oslo!
