Clubs Tips (35)

Clubs: LATE nights!

To their countrymen the people of Madrid are known as Los Gatos (The Cats) for their nocturnal lifestyle. Many young Gatos will consider a week with less than two sleepless nights as a social wasteland and for them the weekend starts on Thursday.
Madrid’s nightlife can take a little getting used to. It is unusual to eat before 10, to go to the cinema before 10:30 or to enter a nightclub before midnight. Bars are open throughout the night, cafés are licensed to sell alcohol at all hours and at many restaurants you can book a table for two o’clock, or even three o’clock, in the morning.

Joy Eslava (Calle del Arenal, 33), with 6 bars distributed across 3 floors, is still the city’s most popular nightspot - on any night of the week it is a favourite queuing venue for both citizens and travellers alike.
Gabana 1800 (Velázquez, 6) is the flagship of the Madrid dulce vida and is a cocktail-sipping hangout for the city’s gorgeous people…and often a few Real Madrid futbolistas.
Ave Nox (Lagasca, 31) has a lively atmosphere and is another prime place-to-be-seen. Teatriz (Hermosilla, 15), set in a charming theatre, is a very popular venue that is worth visiting if only to check out the décor (by Philippe Starck y Mariscal).
Fortuny (Fortuny, 34) is an intriguing ‘disco-restaurant’ in a historic little mansion that has certainly seen the glittering footsteps of more than a few of the city’s brightest stars.

Palacio Gaviria: Party in the palace!

On Friday night, we went to this crazy club called Palacio Gaviria. It actually used to be a palace! Queen Isabel II used to stay there, and it is now a club, it's amazing! All this artwork on the walls and ceiling, the furniture - awesome! It is all decorated as if it were the 19th century!

Some really hot girls too! Too bad about that language barrier! My Spanish is good enough where I can conduct basic conversations with people in quiet areas. Talking to gorgeous Iberian girls with loud bass and drums pounding in the background is not so easy. Toward the end of the night we met some girls from England, man it was so nice to speak to someone in English!

They have a great selection at the bar, it is pricey but it is a nice place, you get what you pay for. There are 3 different rooms blasting music, and also reserved areas where you can sit on these couches and chairs that look like they are 200 years old. (Obviously replicas).

It was around 20 euro to get in.

Dress Code Dress nice, this ain't no frat party! Girls can wear pretty much anything they want, as long as it looks good. For guys, wear long pants (jeans acceptable), nice shoes (although my friend did get in with sneakers but looked like a fool), a nice shirt, you know the deal.

Clubs: Clubbing to House Music/ Bailar a House en Madrid

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.

Clubs: Night time Extravaganza at Joy Nightclub

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.

Open Hours: 11:30pm-5:30am Mon-Thu; 11:30pm-6am Fri-Sat

Dress Code No jeans, no sneakers

Teatro Kapital: 7 floors of fun

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!

Kapital: The Kapital of nightclubs in the Capital of Spain

Kapital nightclub on Calle Atocha is probably the largest nightclub in Madrid. As a matter of fact, it's one of the largest clubs I've been to period. There's about 7 levels and a huge dance floor below. There's a variety of DJ's spinning various club music genres.

The cover charge includes one drink. You have to purchase tickets to buy drinks there, which is annoying. The people watching is good and there's plenty of intimate areas to sit back and watch if you're not participating on the dance floor.

Dress Code No sneakers and you must wear pants...No shorts.

Olivera: Red sofas and the eyes of his mother

Intriguing title, isn't it? The funny thing is that I could not summarize better the decoration of Oliveira, a fashionable cafe in the Chueca neighbourhood that zumodemango suggested us during the past VT meeting. The red sofas part is easy to explain, as the bar offers some quite comfortable and cosy sofas. The eyes of her mother... well that could be explained by saying that the owner decided to decorate the place with pictures of his own mother. Quite an occurrence, if you ask me.

Dress Code Dress code is quite open, as it usually happens with the bars I like to go.

Sala SOL: Cool funky

Sala Sol is a cool dance club that caters mostly to a 20s-30s crowd, more alternative than posh but for everyone. I really like the music there. I would describe it as hip 70s/funk/bossanova groove. It gets really crowded but if you go early (2.15am) you have more space to dance till it gets packed. Closes around 6am.
Its one of my favorite places to go because the music is great, its not so posh and everyone just has a great time.
There is a dj on fri and Sat nights during the week there are concerts of various styles.

Dress Code No special dress code that I know of, you can get in with sneakers.

Le Cock: Up for an early cocktail?

Le Cock is a nice place to start a good decent party night in Madrid. They have everything you can dream about: a selection of well mixed cocktails that would rise your alcohol levels in blood to acceptable limits, an interesting atmosphere created on the base of high ceilings and plenty of cigarettes smoke, waiters that will treat you as if you were a piece of dog *** placed under their shoes, unreasonable high prices, a noise level that would make it impossible to maintain a conversation below the shouting level... errr, I guess the only reason I have for recommend the place is because of its cocktails: they really deserve the rest of the inconvenients ;-)
