Kapital
Kapital

The Godzilla of Madrid clubs, with splendid views of the main dancefloor from many of the upper balconies: dance voyeur heaven. Of seven storeys, each has something different to offer – the main dancefloor and bars are at ground level; the first floor has karaoke; the second, R&B and hip hop; the third, cosy cocktail bars; the fourth is Spanish disco; the fifth has a cinema and more cool sounds; and at the top is a terrace with a retractable roof. Though you'll be doing a lot of walking, wearing trainers will leave you standing out on the street.

I would ask people not to come here. The bouncers discriminate and are racist. I'm a white, American girl and had no problem getting in. However, my Turkish best friend, a pretty girl studying with me at MIT in the US, was denied entrance. The bouncer laughed at her Turkish passport and said no to her, after barely looking at my California license before admitting me. The same happened to our Moroccan friend, another MIT student who was simply trying to enter the club for a night with other friends who had been admitted (Americans and Europeans). For my friends and I on exchange, we will not be returning to Kapital, and really encourage others not to pay any tribute to this place that would treat others so poorly simply because of their national origin. To clarify, my friends' passports were blatantly laughed at, meanwhile mine, and the other Americans / Europeans barely got a glance at our IDs. For those who don't wish to support racist establishments, and wish to see a more equitable Spain, and liberated world, I would ask you not to support this establishment. 


This place is simply amazing. However there are several things you should watch out for:

1) Random bits of flying glass.

2) A weirdy beardy man who never stops dancing.

3) An old guy who takes selfies with everyone, who people shout 'ALAN' at.

4) Hot chicas, everywhere.

5) The DJ is a total numpty.
