The electrifying capital of Spain, Madrid is one of the world's most vibrant and exciting cities. The nightlife in Madrid is like nowhere else – the night starts around 2am and drinking, dancing and flirting will keep you up until dawn. Go for an evening pinot noir, martini or beer with tapas at a local bar, enjoy a late dinner around 10, then check out the clubs and tablaos (flamenco bars or restaurants) for everything from Flamenco to Dancehall, Goth to Minimal. Join the locals anytime until 6 or 7am for chocolate con churros.

Madrilenos make it a daily practice to take time to enjoy life, get ready for the extravaganza at the Hard Rock Cafe Madrid! Special discounts are offered at many restaurants and nightclubs with the Madrid Card,  or Cultura Card. 

Flamenco combines song and an impassioned style of dance, originally from Spain's Andalusian region. Feel the heat at legendary Torres Bermejas, where some of the greatest names in flamenco have performed. The club features a unique decor, reproducing the grandeur of the Alhambra in Granada. Enjoy Andalucian gazpacho, paella, flan and cava (Spanish champagne), sherry, wine or sangria with the show. Or take a dance with the orchestra before the show begins at historic Florida Park,  in Madrid's loveliest gardens, Parque del Buen Retiro. Visit Candela, Clan or Cardamomo, near the Madrid Flea Market for late night music and dance.
Local tip: Enjoy a vermut at Mercado de San Miguel for the real taste of Madrid!

Explore Gay Madrid, and stylish Chueca neighbourhood, Plaza Mazor and Cava Baja for traditional Castilian restaurants & modern wine bars, upmarket Castellana (around Paseo de Castellana and Paseo del Prado), Santa Ana for tapas bars and "cervecerías", Malasaña, Huertas, and Alonso Martinez areas. Take a seat on the terraza, order a “copa” – long drink with ice (gin & tonic, whiskey & coke, rum & lemon, vodka & orange) - and be part of the all night parade!
