Madrid is a place where both Young People and those of advanced Years can find fun and interesting things to do.

There are plenty of opportunities for concerts,cinemas and dance clubs for those who love to hit the town late at night and keep going till the sun rises.

International bands play major Gigs here in Madrid just check out concert dates and who is in town this month.

Madrid is vibrant at night. The Weekend, which unofficially starts on a Thursday in Madrid, is the liveliest. Discos, bars and clubs can be located in some of the trendiest areas of Madrid. Malasaña and its surrounding areas like Chueca (the gay barrio) are the best places to go looking for a dance club or neat little bar that offers good food and friendly atmosphere. Try Tupperware in Malasaña read more

The Madrid Summer has arrived so has the Euro 2012 Football and we are already waiting to see what happens between Spain and Portugal on Wednesday 27th of June 2012. Many people enjoy the atmosphere of a bar when watching football. So, depending on which part of town you are in I can recommend a couple of places that are comfortable and fun to be in.

Café Santa María in Palos de la Frontera

If you happen to be looking for a terrace with a good selection of wide-screen TVs in Palos de la Frontera, then I recommend La Santa María in calle Ancora. The bar is situated on the corner of Paseo del Delicious and is a stones throw from the Metro station Palos de la Frontera. You can easily find a table and good position to sit and watch the Euro 2012 and enjoy the evening warmth of Madrid. The great plus about La Santa María is the service. Its friendly,polite and the owners,  Ángel and Juan , will welcome you with a handshake and smile while serving you a cold beer and free tapa with each new drink. Otherwise the menu of Racíones are varied and I can recommend the kitchen. Who cooks, I dont know, but they serve up a tasty meal. Open all day and the last bar to close at night in the area (02.30 ish.) read more

The barrio of Lavapiés lies south of the city centre. Once the Jewish and Moorish neighbourhood the name lavapiés being translated as Foot-Wash where people would come and have their feet washed ritually.

A great place to visit while in Madrid offering an enjoyable stroll in a non-touristy neighbourhood of Madrids Alternative barrio. In the morning you can stop for coffee and breakfast in one of the many cafés around the area. Just walk along Calle Argumosa (the main drag in Lavapiés) and you will find a table on the terrace to enjoy the Morning sun and something to eat. Keep walking, follow your nose and eventually youll find something to suit your taste. Small side streets offer a variety of cafes for morning coffee not all are open before  12 pm. A lot of the cafés and bars are more suited for night time fun. Calle Argumosa has the advantage of being situated so that you can choose a sunny side of the street or a shaded side of the street. read more
