We went on a Saturday night to the second show at 23.30 and it was packed out. Nice atmosphere with many small groups, especially of young women out on hen nights.

As we had eaten a good lunch, we went for the salad bar at 27 euro each and there was a good selection of dishes. The show started at 01.00 and lasted over an hour. There was a lot of miming to playback music which is international, but if you want to understand the stand-up comedy, you need to speak Spanish or be with Spanish speakers. Before the show we chatted with a very charming transvestite from Sweden, straight out of ‘Cabaret’, who spoke perfect Spanish….

Total for two: 73 euro including salad bar, jug of sangria and show

This restaurant is not bad in tems of quality and price. Is an reasonable alternative for those who don't want to spend... and tired of standing with a fork and a glass in hand ...

I visited this thematic restaurant last weekend at night, and I were pleasantly surprised about food, staff and show.

The local has 2 environments, one large with the salad bar in the middle, and next a semi circular room with great views of the Gran Via st, one of the most active and live by night in Madrid; you'll feel comfortable in both rooms, but my favorites is the second one because the views.

Most of the shows are in the middle of the dinner, with funny drag queens and dancer with mythical songs, like "in the navy, vp", so you'll spend a nice moment eating.

Get ready with a cam recorder and/or a spanish friend for the drag queen show, because most of the monolog shows in weekend are in spanish, so you will be lost in many jokes unless a Spanish friend help you, or take the video and traduce it later..

The meal is just fantastic! the salad bar is very complete with many options, from cesar salad to local food like "Tortilla Española", and the hot meal es well prepared, you'll have nice options too, I counted 10, I choose the salmon grilled, delicious!, and of course desserts and cocktails neither will be disappointing.

If you wantto take the tickets promotion to the disco in Alcala St, remember get there _before_ 2:30 a.m, after that you need to paythe full entrance.

In summary, you will spent a very nice time in this place, dance in the disco, and maybe you could learn some spanish word!

Have a nice stay in Madrid, this is a great city for turists in night.
