There’s nothing like a big city at night. Neighborhoods take on a whole new atmosphere as the cafés and restaurants open and then change again as nightclubs and bars begin to spill their patrons out and onto the street. There is a certain energy that comes with the transitions, you can feel the streets awaken, calm and finally sit at peace.
Madrid is a surprisingly artistic city, and not just in visual arts. Sure there are a number of excellent art museums, but the city is also home to an incredible variety of Alternative Arts- from performing to expressive and visual. A few neighborhoods are well known in the alternative art scene and even play host to underground art clubs.
IF YOU GO: Madrid has modern infrastructure and still maintains its charming neighborhoods. A very welcoming city, despite its size Madrid plays host to many different types of people and cultures. Apartments in Madrid are a great way to spend a week and get to know the neighborhoods and communities.
