Nightclubs in Madrid

Whether you are up for a nice cocktail, a pub-crawl tour or a dancing the night away, from Monday to Sunday you can party out until the early hours and end up eating chocolate con churros for breakfast.

Note that Madrileños like to start the night by gathering in a pub or two and later head to a club/discotheque for some dancing.  Pubs usually open around 11/12pm, and they stop serving at 3am (they close half an hour later).

Pub Crawls in Madrid

Many European cities organize pub-crawls that act as social gatherings for the local expatriate communities and tourists. These crawls focus on the social aspect of meeting new friends and being introduced to new bars in a strange city.

The Pub Crawl includes the entrance to multiple pubs or bars in a single night, normally travelling by foot or public transport to each destination, and ending in a discotheque.
