    Chapandaz - Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review A local bar frequented by Madrid’s college students, Chapandaz offers reasonably priced cocktails served in glasses the size of goldfish bowls to barhoppers looking for a drinking experience with a Spanish flair. Although the bar itself is not subterranean, Chapandaz has taken the concept of the basement “cave bars” for ... more

    BarCo - Club | Live Music Venue in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Converted from an abandoned cabaret, BarCo is a popular late-night spot that embraces its heritage with walls adorned with posters of the scantily clad dancers and singers that once graced the stage. That stage is still in use, but these days it features a variety of live concerts and performances that range from big band ... more

    El 2D - Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Located at the east end of the Plaza del Dos de Mayo in the heart of Malasaña, El 2D (also known as Bar Dos) is arguably the most popular hangout in this bustling, tree-filled square, despite having apparently changed very little since its 70s-era beginnings.

    Party Earth Review Located in the heart of the historical neighborhood of La Latina, El Viajero is a three-story bar and restaurant that attracts a predominantly stylish young crowd.

    La Bardemcilla - Restaurant | Tapas Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Iron-grated windows and a pair of simple round signs dress La Bardemcilla’s otherwise non-descript façade, giving little indication that the venue is the creation of one of Spain’s most famous thespians. Despite being owned by the renowned Bardem family – Oscar winner Javier, siblings Monica and Carlo, and their mother ... 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.
