Right in the centre of the city, in the heart of Madrid's tourist and shopping districts, you can also go out on the town and enjoy some of the city's best nightlife.

Not far from the famous Kilometre Zero in the Puerta del Sol, you will find several of Madrid's most famous night spots. One of the most emblematic clubs is Joy Eslava, which first opened as a theatre almost 150 years ago and which has reinvented itself so that it is a permanent fixture on the circuit, now playing host to the city's best DJs and a wide variety of live gigs. Another legendary nightspot in Madrid is El Sol, famous for its concerts, featuring the best line-up of national and international acts. Also close to Puerta del Sol, at the start of Calle Alcalá, Sala Cocó offers electronic sessions to suit all tastes throughout the week.

In other areas close to Puerta de Sol you will find other legendary clubs and venues, such as Morocco, a renovated icon of Madrid's 'Movida' cultural scene; Stella, with its trademark industrial aesthetic; and Boite, which is very popular with the LGTBI collective.

Other fun options include Moondance, with several areas playing different styles of music, or Charada, another major clubbing hotspot in Madrid.

On the Gran Vía, Madrid's historic boulevard that never sleeps, and in the surrounding area, you will also find countless bars, pubs and clubs for an unforgettable night. You should definitely try and make it to the legendary Museo Chicote, which has in the past welcomed the biggest stars of Hollywood's golden age, and also Ernest Hemingway. Now it continues to draw Madrid's coolest crowds.

For those who like to stay up all night, one excellent option is the Wurlitzer Ballroom with its uncompromising rock scene, or any one of the numerous clubs and bars springing up in the area surrounding Callao, such as Ohm, Larios Café, Oba Oba, Café Berlín, Independance Club or the old-fashioned cocktail bar José Alfredo.

This area of Madrid is also home to places reserved for fans of flamenco: Torres Bermejas and Café de Chinitas are essential 'tablao' venues, famous on the flamenco circuit.
