Top ways to experience nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

We went into the LL show bar on a Tuesday night and it was quite busy. The drag acts are all in Spanish so if you don’t speak Spanish then it’s a little tricky to follow but you can get the general gist of it and the songs are good. Must check out.

Ended up in here as part of an organized tour. Got there early-ish, but it soon packed up. 2 x drag queens, I didn't have too much idea what was being said as it was all in Spanish (funny, that, being in Madrid and all!) but I ended up on stage being ritually humiliated without understanding what was being said, so that's that one ticked off my bucket list. I guess these places are an acquired taste, but if you don't take it too seriously you'll be OK.

This is the kind of place where you meet everyone around you if you are there early enough and standing at the bar. They open at 8, and the show starts at midnight. The small bar gets quite crowded for the shows. There is another little bar downstairs if you want to escape the crowd. Downstairs is also a small cruise area. Definitely a place to stop by for at lease 1 drink... 2 if it's happy hour.

We´ve been to this place twice in June and it was very fun.
It´s a small place with drags performing and talking to the audiente, really really fun!
Drinks are ok, not pricy.
A fun place to start the night, it goes until around 2;30am.

I personally did not go to this establishment but my roommate just came back home and shared her uncomfortable & unacceptable experience with me.

She and another one of our friends were repeatedly singled out by two racist performers for being Asian, and continually made fun of. Both were extremely uncomfortable with this as were others in the audience.

This behavior is abhorrent.

Extremely bad service and rude staff at the bar! The drag queens are fab but when your tender ruins your night it’s not really worth it.

This evening there was a line to get in. After entering the drag queen already started her show with some ‘below the belt’ jokes. Funny if you understand a bit of Spanish. After the jokes she started singing some gay favorites. Easy going people around of all ages. Nice to go.

Went with my partner and within 30 seconds of walking in the drag queen made a racist joke towards my partner. Do not go.

We stumbled upon this bar in our effort to celebrate the beginning of Pride, and it was actually what you'd expect. Small, crowded, great drag show, with the service as fast as they could have been considering how hard it is to move! We stood back by the DJ bar as left when it got too crowded. It's not for the faint of heart, but if you're looking for a drag bar this is a great place.

It's a pity that I don't speak Spanish because Lady Natasha and her ladies said so many funny things to the audience who loved their jokes!
It's for free but please buy a drink to support the funny show!
