This is without a doubt Madrid's most famous nightclub and it attracts the rich and famous from all over the world as well as a faithful local crowd. It changed its name from Joy Eslava after a fire and consequent renovation work in 1998, but most people still call it by its original name, and the decor and atmosphere remain the same as ever. However, the prices have gone up. The building was originally a theatre and dates from the 1870s. They have several rooms with different tases and flavors, Regge, traditional, R&B, latin, spanish, etc. You will never foget the experience.

This visually impressive bar is a good spot to take some friends once or twice. It's pricey, but you have to pay for fashion. However, repeated visits will soon reveal the arrogance of the waiters, which is pretty much Parisian level with the exception that this is Madrid. Chicos, esto es MADRID! Bajaros de la nubes! Get down from the clouds chaps! I say this because they forbade me to take photos without flash. I mean, one or two! I admit that the waiter who told me to do so was decidely unbusy. "We must keep our clients in check!" he seemed to say. This bar would fit better in the Salamanca district, not here, just close to Chueca. I suppose I had one visit too many there. %f
