Madrid, the electrifying Spanish capital, is one of the world's most vibrant and exciting cities. The nightlife in Madrid is like nowhere else, with everything from bodegas and flamenco bars to nightclubs and pubs to entertain. Here’s what you need to know.
Club Crawls and Bar Hopping Tours
A city the size of Madrid has a lot to offer in terms of nightlife, and planning that perfect night on the town can be complicated if you don't know the city. Skip the hassle and leave the planning to a local with a bar hopping or club crawling tour. Party at some of Madrid’s most buzzing cocktail bars and dance floors in trendy neighborhoods like Malasaña and Huertas, or climb aboard a party bus to hop between the best clubs, enjoying skip-the-line access and discounted drinks.
Tapas and Wine Tastings
Madrileños don't dine until after dark, so once the sun goes down, head out on a nighttime food walking tour led by a local guide. Dig into some of the city’s favorite dishes, typically in small restaurants located in tucked-away corners that would be difficult to find on your own. As you walk from one tapas bar to the next, learn about Madrid’s history and traditions while catching a glimpse of its illuminated landmarks. It’s a great way to kick off an evening.
Flamenco combines song and an impassioned style of dance, originally from Spain's Andalusian region. Feel the heat at legendary Torres Bermejas, a tablao (flamenco venue) where some of the greatest names in flamenco have performed. The club features decor that recreates the grandeur of the Alhambra in Granada. Depending on the option chosen, the show might include a traditional Spanish meal along with live music and dancing.
