Bars and nightlife in Madrid

Top bars

Roof Deck
“There are many rooftop bars in Madrid, but none quite compare to this beauty. With an almost 360 degree view of the city, there is no better place to hang out and enjoy the views. This rooftop terrace is special because it has great lounge areas so that you can enjoy the view and relax with as many rounds of drinks as your heart desires.”

Tapas Restaurant
“"EL VIAJERO" restaurant and bar is situated over three stories in a classic nineteenth Century building, where the cozy and small rooftop garden on top is the prime spot to visit. It is the only rooftop bar in Madrid on this list, located in the Latina area of he city. "EL VIAJERO" (which btw means 'the Traveler') holds a full on restaurant on the ground floor, a second floor bar and on the third floor you get the best of both worlds. The kitchen on the terrace serves a nice selection of tapas and nibbles, along with crunchy pizzas with an Italian touch. The rooftop bar offers a wide selection of cocktails, where (of course) the mojito is a given favorite. Expect cool views over old town Madrid, a magical sunset accompanied with a vibrant and relaxed atmosphere. No reservations possible for the rooftop terrace, so be on time to be guaranteed a good spot.”

Night Club
“Great food, drinks, music, price and ambiance just a short walk away. With a privileged location just a few meters from Plaza Santa Ana and Las Cortes, this location takes over where the mythical Café del Prado left off, a very fashionable restaurant in Madrid in the nineteenth century for being a meeting place for great scholars of the likes of Don Santiago Ramón y Cajal and that disappeared in the 1940s. Opened on July 22, 2010, combines the elegance of the high ceilings and large windows overlooking the streets of Prado and León, with the vintage industrial style of Lamucca restaurants. Meeting place for people of culture and theater, Lamucca de Prado also regularly welcomes people from the neighborhood and well-informed tourists from the restaurants that should not be missed in Madrid.”
