    La Vaca Austera - Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Although there are still a handful of bars and clubs in Madrid that were at the forefront of the counter-culture upheaval of La Movida after the end of the Franco dictatorship, few of them have retained their edge and flair as well as La Vaca Austera. Dark and mellow, the bar draws a clientele of colorful locals that keep ... more

    Party Earth Review With its prime location on the corner of Plaza de Santa Ana and its façade of bamboo shutters and dried grass awnings, it’s hard to miss Mauna Loa, the only place in town that offers a truly Hawaiian experience and fabulous tropical drinks.

    El Ventorrillo - Bar | Café | Spanish Restaurant in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Most of the historical center of Madrid was built on a high plateau amid a network of lush green gardens and parks – and situated on a corner in the southern part of that plateau, far away from the city’s constant swarm of tourists, is a little café called El Ventorrillo.

    La Casa de la Cerveza - Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review The one thing that makes La Casa de la Cerveza special is its open bar, where a mere €10 will buy all the beer, wine, sangria, and calimocho that one person can drink. Obviously, the open bar attracts throngs of young patrons who stop by to fill up before heading out to the clubs, earning this modest cervecería a special ... more

Browse Madrid Bars and Clubs by Category

Whether it’s true or not, Spain claims to have more bars and clubs than the whole European Union combined. And though the math doesn’t quite work out, there are still thousands of pubs, lounges, and bars and clubs in Madrid that cater to its party-happy populace.

After a late dinner, the nightlife scene begins with friends gathered in the bars over traditional cañas (small beers), tinto de verano (Fanta and red wine), and pitchers of sangria.

Once the drinking scene creeps into the wee hour, however, the masses start their nightly pilgrimage to Madrid’s clubs to dance and party until sunrise. Anyone new to Madrid’s bars and clubs should be wary if they get claustrophobic: the sense of personal space in this city is nearly nonexistent, and the densely packed discos are swarming with people where standing still is not an option.
