Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Madrid

Tempo
If you're looking for an alternative to the glamorous club scene, Tempo is a great place for a dance - or a quieter drink in the café upstairs.
Kapital
If size was the only criterion, then Kapital would win Madrid's club wars. Quantity is not quite matched by quality, but despite being commercial, it's enormous fun.
Marula
Cramming an enormous amount of fun into one of the smallest possible places, Marula hums with funk and soul, and everyone gets their groove on...
Shoko
A stylish, Asian-themed club, Shoko is a bit of a magnet for local VIPs thanks to its feng shui interior and adjoining restaurant; meanwhile, the soundtrack has a suitably cool, deep house vibe.
Palacio Gaviria
Baroque grandeur is not normally a design ethos associated with clubs, but that makes a night at Palacio Gaviria all the more interesting. Come on Wednesdays for tango night or weekends for more mainstream music.
Demode
Formerly a bar de putas (a hooker bar to you and me), Demode has been transformed into an electronica club that has become popular as the first venue of the night.
Cool
Cool is one of the most fashionable places to be seen in Madrid's hedonistic night scene, but check the night before you go, as the theme nights may not be for everyone.
La Vieja Estacion
Head south to reach this beautiful summer-only venue. With 10 bars, a restaurant, salsa rooms and open-air dance floor, you'll never want to leave.
Moma56
One of Madrid's most popular (and sexy) clubs, Moma's slightly out-of-centre location ensures it is full of smart locals and only the most clued-up tourists.
Reina Bruja
The big red sofas in the chill-out area are the perfect complement to the innovative wall designs and straightforward layout of this visually arresting club.
Ananda
A summer hotspot, this super-trendy club is the venue of choice for Madrid's international glitterati who come to take advantage of the beautifully decorated outside terrace.
