This was great once it got going, but NO ONE was there before 01:30 - not even the DJ! Keep your entry ticket for a free drink at the bar, even though it is not mentioned on the ticket itself. You couldn't sit if you hadn't booked a table and it wasn't clear how to do that. They played good... More

nice place, most of the attendees are in between 18 - 30 years, so you will have a great night.. the only thing that I didn't like, is always crowed... the bar is too small for the place.

This club is AWESOME! It is one of my favorite nightclubs in the WORLD! It doesn't even begin to pick up until 1 am, though, and doesn't open until midnight. The dress is ecclectic, and the DJ was seriously killing it! It is also in a convenient location right near the Puerta de Sol.

I normally try to avoid touristy places but a Spanish resident offered to get me and my girlfriend in free so we went to Joy Eslava. The music was excellent, there were hot guys from all over the world and the club was big. I even got to see a free authentic Flamenco show! The club is huge so you... More

I really like this place. We spent 2 nights there and had a lot of fun. The party Angels was amazing.

This club is great fun but because it is so popular with tourists thefts are a huge problem. In the 6 months I have lived in Madrid myself and 4 friends have had things stolen from our bags in this club, this is not that common in Madrid. So girls be careful! I would suggest treating this club like your... More

This place gets a lot of tourists, since anyone who's been in Madrid for a while will realize that it's extremely overpriced considering the number of less expensive but far better clubs in Madrid in the city. Go once because it's famous, but keep your expectations low. If you do you'll have a good time; if not, you'll probably be... More

First of all, there's always someone giving out wristbands in Puerta del Sol that gets you entry and 2 drinks included for 15 euros if you go before 1:30 am. Drinks at clubs in Spain are crazy expensive so take advantage of this. The nightclub is really nice, as it is in an old theatre. We went on a Friday... More

The venue itself is an old small theatre but the club is nothing special get ready to wait at least 15 minutes to get served. Longdrinks at 11€ beer at 9€ which i thought was a complete rip off. Must say i will not be returning to this venue. If you like the comercial music go go dancers waiting 30... More

During my Erasmus in Madrid we used to go often to Joy, I didn't like it very much to be honest. I think it might have been because I like different types of clubs. This is posh, expensive and you can meet wird people (well.. as anywhere). usually there is some show going on- dancers or sth. Its good to... More
