Concierge.com's insider take:
Rick's in Casablanca wasn't a gay barat least not openlybut its Madrid namesake is. The Humphrey Bogart theme is fleshed out with marble floors, casbah-style cushions, curtains, and so on. Might all sound a bit cheesy, but they somehow manage to pull it off with class, which is far from a foregone conclusion in Chueca. In part because of the incessant theming, the place is more bar than dance club, although there is dancing, and this being Madrid, it hops until dawn nonetheless. Rick's has also become touristy, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, in this case. After all, sometimes you want to meet other tourists, and this is a point of reference for all.
