    La Vía Láctea - Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review A mainstay of Malasaña nightlife for over thirty years, La Vía Láctea is a throbbing, two-story bar that still draws a huge crowd of young madrileños, students, and travelers alike. If the long bar on the first floor, which spans the room from end to end, is too crowded, patrons can wait for an opening at one of the comfy ... more

    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

    Ángel Sierra - Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Finding Ángel Sierra at the northern end of Plaza de Chueca is simple – just look for the lively crowd standing around with drinks in hand by the double-door entrance on the corner. The elaborate and colorful Victorian-style architecture of the building and the small bar, whose design and décor have obviously been left ... more

    O’Connell St. - Irish Pub | Sports Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Owned and operated by the same guy who runs Dubliners right next door, O’Connell St. is essentially a carbon-copy of its neighbor, touting a pot-o’-gold-worthy cluster of budget-friendly booze and a regular crowd of raucous expats. Anyone who hit Dubliners first will have a bit of déjà vu once they pop the few steps down ... more

    Sidrería La Creación - Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review The northern coast of Spain is famous for its love of sidra – a greenish-yellow apple cider served in large, wide-brimmed glasses – and La Creación, with its cool old-world feel and ideal location just off Plaza de Santa Ana, is the perfect setting in which to try some. The bar’s black-and-white checkered floor contrasts ... more

    La Musa - Restaurant | Tapas Bar in Madrid.

    Party Earth Review Tapas have dominated Madrid’s gastronomic scene since before it became the capital in the sixteenth century, but La Musa has taken that tradition and run with it. Part of a small population of restaurants seeking to reinvent age-old dishes, the venue fuses traditional Spanish tapas with international flavors. Not surprisingly ... more

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.
