Where to drink in Madrid





Kapital is one of the most popular clubs in Madrid and the place to be if you want a great night out. There are different spaces for whatever you are in the mood for. Come chill, drink and even dance!

Taberna de Antonio Sánchez 

Behind one of the best-preserved old taberna facades in Madrid hides this gem of a traditional tapas bar that is also great for drinks!

Il Morto Che Parla 

Italian for “the dead guy that speaks”, this bar is great for a late night meet up, for drinks and nibbles.


One of Madrid’s finest in-party locations in the heart of the city (close to Sol). Cheap, good music and fun.

Fatigas del Querer

Excellent tavern to watch football games with beer and friends.


Cheap pub where you can have free welcome shots, usually crowded by Erasmus students and popular with visitors from all over the globe.

La Fontana de Oro 

Nearly a century old, this cafe-bar has bohemian vibes and is excellent for a few drinks and even coffee!


This is a club for all R&B music fans!


This is where all the hipsters in Madrid gather to get their groove on. Check their website for the schedule of live bands playing as well!

Black and White

If a nightclub is still as popular as it was in the 80s it must be good. Bust a move on the dance floor or enjoy the entertaining drag shows upstairs.

Why not?

Grab a cocktail and mingle with locals at this classic LGBT dance hall.

Bambalinas Bar 

Bambalinas is an LGBT-friendly bar that plays show tunes and musical numbers all night long. This little bar feels like your local pub where you can sing the night away with friends.
