need no excuse to get out there and party-and neither do you. So if you're looking to dress to the nines and then dance until you drop, Madrid's nightclubs are the places to be.
Most nightclubs don't hit their stride until well after midnight, but that's not a problem-taxis are plentiful at all hours in Madrid and night 'owl' buses crisscross the city until the day buses and the Metro start circulating again.
Our top nightclub pick, Kapital is like a decadent buffet: it caters for everyone with seven floors of different pleasures-techno/house, R&B, pop, karaoke, etc. However, the first floor is the most spacious and elegant; there the DJs spin techno and house to packed crowds while the sculpturesque go-go dancers (male and female) sway away on stage.
A large locale near Chamartín train station, Space of Sound is our second pick and a lively destination for dance, trance, electronica and house music on Sundays starting at midnight. It's like being in Ibiza.
Our third pick is Tupperware, an alternative rock bar and temple of pop culture kitsch. Although known for its tendency to rock, the Malasaña mainstay has a varied menu throughout the week: alternative rock, indie, pop and funk. The atmosphere is cool and relaxed, just people out to have some fun, but it can get pretty packed in there.
Our fourth choice would have to be Ohm. On Friday and Saturday nights Ohm is a central stop for trendy music, especially for gay men.
