An old palace turned inte a nightclub is a splendid idea and the people behind this nightclub has succeeded to 100%!
You feel like a visitor to the palace owner transfered back to the 18th century. A lot of different dancefloors which gives everyone what they want. Crowded with happy and pleasant people.
Dress Code: Not to casual
We found a treasure: an old restaurant named Chicote, which had been kept in the style of its golden years. That is why its colours are quite dark and many may not like it. But it is history: It used to be a place where people like Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner and Salvador Dali (and many more) used to spend their evenings.
On the walls you can find some old pictures and other memorabilia of the time of the stars. A very nice place after all these cold this century's discos and clubs.
Just for information: the place is not a disco, there is no live music nor dance floor. It is mainly meant for having a drink, meeting friends, talking, perhaps later going to a disco or nightclub.
Dress Code: No dress code. Here again anyhow please remember the usual European (the more south, the more important) culture and habit: men should always wear trousers or jeans in the evenings, never shorts or sports gear.
(In the Mediterranean countries the men never wear shorts even at daytime at summer in cities; always trousers. An exception to this is of course the fact that when they are on the beach when they have a day off or are on a holiday). That is not trying to look "better or richer than I am" or "trying to get girls" or anything as stupid - it is simply respect towards their companion, the food, their family and so on.
I was with my friends in Puerta Del Sol Square waiting for other friends to join us, we already had dinner that night, when a German girl approaches me and ask me in a confused Spanish " lo siento pero estoy buscando un club acerca de Puerta del Sol que se llama Bourbon Café y pensaba que tu siendo espanol puede ayudarme"... well actually I'm not Spanish I replied :))) but we went together to look for it and then spent a wonderful dancing night! Bourbon Café is nice and it may get packed after 1 am.

Dress Code: Just Fun
Coming from the US, this club was unlike anything I'd ever seen. It was not only gorgeous, but a blast, as well. I didn't want the night to end at all! They had different rooms, each with it's own theme and music. Great for dancing, drinking, people watching, and meeting both locals and students from all around the world.
I enjoyed the clubs in Madrid, especially Sala Divino. I danced to some local Djs that were spinning some great “House music.” It was deep, with hints of soul coming through the speakers. I was as if James Brown or Nina Simone were behind the speakers waiting for the queuesto perform every now and then. I enjoyed dancing into the early morning, and I know I will go out clubbing again when I return to Madrid.
Me encanto los clubes en Madrid, especialmente Sala Divino. Bailé a algúnos Djs que estaban tocando "música de House." Era profunda, con las indirectas del alma viniendo a través de los altavoces. Era como si el James Brown o Nina Simone de estuviera detrás de los altavoces y esperaban el queuesto para cantar. Me guste bailando hasta la mañana temprana, y sé que voy a salir para los clubes otra vez cuando vuelvo a Madrid.
Dress Code: Your dancing shoes.
From the outside...it looked like the kind of places where I wouldn't have entered. But it soon became my favourite.
I'm not a fan of nightclub, but this is not really one...
La Via Lactea ("the milkyway") is a bar where you can also danse and play pool.
It is also a delightful time travel... The place plays excellent pop/rock music from the 5O's to the 80's. The walls are covered with posters of bands and it really has a great atmosphere.
The crowd is young and international.
This place has everything - 7 floors of everything from a cinema, dance floors, quiet bars and best of all Karaoke!!
It's 20 euro in and you get a free drink.
Not too sure what time the place opens but it does close at 8am!!
Dress Code: Quite a trendy place, so I think there would be no tracksuits of trainers allowed!
It is in the Midle of Chueca. gays and straights, mainly gays find fun here, it is a small place but that makes fun for sure, music varies, from Kelly Minogue to The Gipsy kings, Chayanne, Enrique Iglesias, Modjo, a big mixture but fun.
Dress Code: none
The nightlife in Sapin is second to none. After the death of the dictator, Franco, the country celebrated its new found freedom into the wee hours of the night and that tradition still continues today! Spaniards truly live in the moment and they enjoy all of them hasta la madrugada (until dawn).
A typical weekend includes dinner at 10:30 pm, bar at 12:00 am or so and then off to the nightclubs at 3:30 or 4:00 am. Pacha is super famous and has a fun vibe. We also went to Gabana 1800, Confidencial, and Goldfinger, to name a few...

I am not sure if locals like this place.. but it was the first pub that we got into or rather manage to get into coz it was a public holiday but the music was really great.. Friendly crowd as well.
Dress Code: Smart casual
On the Saturday night the bar men were muscular and handsome...The decour was beautiful and classy, gave a really good upmarket feel to the club. There were both male and female dancers on tabels (tranvestite on the Sunday night) and 2 rooms with D.J'S and several bars. Lovely to walk form one room through to the other. Sunday night also had Playboy TV present (very funny to see). I will definatly go back to this club on my next Madrid trip.
Dress Code: There did not seem to be a dress code as such., but nobody will stop you for wearing your prada heels :)
If you do venture through Huertas at 2AM on a Tuesday, looking for a hip place to get down, chances are you'll end up in a seedy dive like this. If this place had ever met any licensing requirements, I would be shocked. Expensive beer, lousy Europop, and slimy kids -- What more do you need for crazy fun!?!
