Girls get in for free. Guys have to pay 15€. You need to be on a guest list to get in. This is through Facebook. 33cl bottle of beer: 20€!!!! 0,5l bottle of water: 15€. Biggest scam all over Madrid. Keep away from this pile..

This club was heaving when we arrived at 1:30 am with a huge queue outside. The atmosphere was good however the music was bizarrely chosen. a mix of classic Spanish, old school motivation hits and current pop. The pictures don't really look much like this...More

Joy Eslava was a really nice club with a not so expensive entry fee (~20€ per person) which included a drink as well. The DJ line up good but not great but the crowd was really amazing. Drinks inside are a little expensive but you're...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
