The club is looking ok in an old theather but I had to pay 10!!! Euros for one beer. The said three floors but only one floor was opened. If you want to spend good money on a great club Kapital is a much better option. There you pay 7 euros for a beer but that's a beautiful club with... More

We went there on saturday night at 1:15. Within an hour the club was filled with people. Only ground floor, no entry to balconies. Commercial music, lots of tourists. Busy dancefloor, more guys than girls... The drinks are way too expensive, 10 euro for 1 beer!

Um super club para dançar e curtir em Madri. Enorme com um pessoalzinho entre 20 e 28 anos, mais ou menos. Boa música, um animador de balada no palco, além do DJ, com meninas dançando de sainha plissada. Vários níveis estilo mezzanino pra ficar de olho na balada toda. Tem vallet, mas talvez seja melhor ir de táxi! ;) ---... More

We decided to check this place out on a Tuesday night. We arrived at 1:30am. We were able to negotiate 18 Euros a person with 2 drinks per person plus and cover included. We thought it was a great deal since we are from Miami and just club entries where we are from are $20 and they don't include anything.... More

I had a great time with the friends I was traveling with and new friends who recommended Joy. I may sound a bit of a lush, but the drinks were small and not very strong. The music was good, the dancers were good, the crowd was FULL of males looking for something way more than I was! Ladies, be ready... More

This is a good place to dance and meeting people. For women, 2 drinks free. Besides, it have a good localization (near Puerta del Sol). There are more little clubs around, but this is the best in this region. If you plan go there, I suggest to go to others clubs around it before, because is possible to drink some... More

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

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
