Music

Daniel Norgren

Daniel Norgren presents his two latest albums, both released in 2015: 'Alabursy', which was out in April, and 'The Green Stone', which went on sale in October. For 'The Green Stone,' Norgren used keyboards from his personal collection dating between 1950 and 1970. The last time he was in Madrid was in late 2013, as the opening act for The Tallest Man On Earth, and since that left us wanting more, we couldn't be happier that Norgren is back on his own with his blues-folk sound, meaningful lyrics and hypnotic atmospheres.

Dance clubs

Ocho y Medio

Ocho y Medio is the perfect stop on your hedonistic tour of the town if you're looking for an alcohol-fuelled mass of party energy. DJ Smart makes it all sound very '80s and '90s, thrashing out an eclectic mix of indie, electro-clash, electro-pop, new wave and New York rock. It takes a master to meld Blur and Depeche Mode. On arriving here you’ll be met by a sea of flannel shirts and horn-rimmed glasses since this is Madrid’s hipster haven. You’ll also find interesting concerts by local and international bands like La Habitación Roja.

Shôko

This club in La Latina that has everything that nocturnal fun seekers need. Commercial music to dance to and the occasional live performance make for a mix that attracts scores of young people every weekend. Miniskirts, tight dresses and polo shirts move around the dancefloor here, changing colour along with the LED lights. The clientele, which is around 20 years old, obviously spends some time at the gym and applying make-up in front of the mirror. On Thursdays, there’s a ‘kisses’ session and an open bar with the ‘Kiss Kiss Bang, Bang’ session, while Sundays are given over to hotter beats like urban, latin and reggaeton.

Joy Eslava

Unusual in that it retains some original trappings of its former incarnation as a 19th-century theatre, in every other respect this is an ordinary high-street club. The vast crammed dancefloor runs the gamut from teenage tribes through to housewives, enjoying staple disco house. One of the classic venues in Madrid where you’re likely to see some famous faces, Joy Eslava also hosts live performances that range from concerts to monologues.
