When the sun goes down, Madrid really comes to life. From intimate night clubs to massive concert halls and live music venues, Madrid’s always ready for a party. Head down Gran Vía (grahn VEE-yah) for midnight bars and clubs, or seek out the neighbourhood of Malasaña (mal-uh-SAHN-yah) for the hottest dance halls, pubs and lounges. Watch traditional flamenco dancers twirl across the stage, or sample the city’s performing arts, with dance, opera and theatre downtown. Try the city’s distinctive wines and beers, or hit a coffee house for a refreshing cup before heading home.
