Alive with bars, clubs and pubs ideal for the student budget, Princesa offers everything from rock to Spanish pop and techno music.
With countless colleges and student residences close to each other, Princesa boasts a genuine student community feel and offers great entertainment in many of its bars, pubs and cafés.
Take the tube to Plaza de España, Ventura Rodríguez, Argüelles, Moncloa, Islas Filipinas or Guzmán el Bueno to get to this district. Right at the beginning of Calle Princesa is Sala Marco Aldany (formerly, Sala Arena). Catering to young crowds, the club plays house music and has two sisters a pebble’s throw away, Pirandello I and II.
Head to the area of Guzmán el Bueno to find bars, taverns and fast food eateries where dining on a budget is entirely possible thanks to the special inexpensive deals for students. After dinner, you can go bar hopping to experience the nightlife at legendary venues like Cats, La Sal, Ricorda or Mamá no lo sabe. If you’re in the mood for some heavy rock or punk, you should get to T.N.T. or La Dama, both in Argüelles.
Like other popular nightlife areas in Madrid, Princesa has venues closing between 2 and 4am and others that stay open much longer, especially on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
In the summer months, when the sun goes down, get to the rooftop of the Exe Hotel, in Mercado de Moncloa, to find Terraza de Poniente, a restaurant facing west and affording stunning views of El Pardo National Park and Sierra de Guadarrama. Covering about 300m2, the place has a pool, big white sofas and a chill-out atmosphere to enjoy in a low-key note
