    Café Ruiz - Bar | Café in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Tucked away on a tranquil corner of the otherwise clamorous neighborhood of Malasaña, Café Ruiz is a charming little spot that offers a more subdued atmosphere than the other bars in the area.

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.
