Madrid’s Nightlife and Culture
If there is one thing, however, that characterizes Madrid, is the deep, contagious passion for life, friends and family which surfaces at night. A culture all in itself.
Every night all of Madrid steps out and gets together to enjoy “Tapas“, attend a Play, the opening of an Opera or see the latest rising Flamenco artist. You can find great authentic Flamenco “Tablaos“. Or you may want to attend the traditional Verbena de la Paloma (open-air traditional musical opera dating back to the 18th century) in the historic district of “Lavapies” while enjoying the traditional hot chocolate and “churros” that accompanies this event.
If you prefer, you can attend the popular festivals such as the San Isidro Festival which in addition to its city celebrations hosts some of the best bullfights in Spain. If you like dancing, you will find an array of night clubs with great ambiance spread all throughout the city.
The fact is when it comes to culture and nightlife no other city comes close to Madrid. A feast for the eyes, ears and heart. In Madrid the excitement doesn’t stop until “the sun also rises”.
