Sol (El Centro), Madrid –
One of the most well-known and popular clubs in Madrid, Kapital is a prime example of the city’s larger-than-life social scene and is just as much a tourist destination as the nearby Prado Museum.
The seven floors of musical madness offer something for just about everyone, so patrons should take the time to explore them all and be prepared for a long night.
The main dance floor is on the first level and features three bars, an amazing light show, and a frenzied crowd dancing to techno and waiting for the blasts of cool air to fire down from the giant fog machine above.
Those who prefer a quieter atmosphere and their own musical stylings will feel at home in the karaoke lounge on the second level. Hip-hop and R&B fans tend to gravitate to the funky beats on the third level, while the DJ box and private area on the fourth level attract folks who just need to get away from the crowd.
Greatest hits and revivals entertain a rambunctious crowd even further up on the fifth level, where two bars serve customers who aren’t shy about belting out lyrics.
Kapital has wisely designated the top two levels as the chill-out areas, creating a mellow vibe on the sixth level where customers can get to know each other, and an outdoor terrace with two bars on the seventh-level roof for those who have escaped the chaos below and want to enjoy their cocktails in peace.
Although pricey, this is not an exclusive hangout, but instead caters to anyone who likes to splurge on an elaborate club experience once in a while. The place attracts a full range of patrons from well-dressed professionals to casual locals, expats, and travelers.
Regardless of the crowd, however, one night at Kapital is sure to supply a week’s worth of stories.
