Madrid nightlife

Even Catalans admit that Madrid's clubs rage even more than Barcelona's. The Malasaña neighborhood has a scene that's artsy in places and often quite young; even the high schoolers tend to hit the bars around here. Still, to miss the spectacle of the all-night Malasaña street party on a Saturday is to miss an essential element of modern Madrid. The late-20s to early-30s scene, meanwhile, has its epicenter in Chueca, to the east of Malasaña. Like many traditionally gay neighborhoods, Chueca has turned into a more mixed scene that attracts hipsters from all over town. But don't overlook the more traditional La Latina area, south of the Palacio Real, especially on weekends. As most people start their night out at a tapas bar after 10pm, we've included our recommendations here instead of in our Eating section. If you're looking for traditional tapas, head to the series of small sidestreets leading off Plaza Santa Ana.
