La Vía Láctea

This is something of an old glory on the Madrid nightclub scene, which shot to fame in the 1980s on the back of the Movida Madrileña and is still wearing a certain nostalgic halo. Its graffiti filled walls are run down and give it a louche, rock and roll touch. It’s divided into four different areas so it doesn’t tend to get too full and you’ll usually have room to move around (and breathe). The clientele is a very diverse mix of thirty year olds, but you can find everything from veteran rockers to youngsters looking for music from another time. There’s also a pool table, though it’s fallen into disuse.
