The lively nightlife of Spain’s capital is famous all over the world. If there is one city where you know you’ll be able to dance all night long to whatever music you like, where you’ll come across people from hundreds of different nationalities and discover venues in every possible style, that city must be Madrid.
You’ll see how the atmosphere changes depending on the area. If you’re looking for an evening with a little refinement, take a stroll around the Salamanca district. If you prefer something more underground with rock and alternative pop, head for the Malasaña neighbourhood. And to find the latest hip discos and clubs with sessions by the best djs, as well as the chance to spot a few famous faces, the best place to go is the centre, in the area around the Gran Vía and Sol.
Although any time in Madrid is a good time for dancing and meeting people, you’ll find the best atmosphere on Thursdays to Saturdays, starting around midnight. And then you can always head for an afterhours club to carry on partying.
