There was lots to love about Madrid during the day, but what is the most memorable is the nightlife in this capital city of Spain.
Isabella had told us we’d be eating late….an early reservation was at 10pm. This intimidated me. But, once we arrived and started living like the Spanish, it all fell into place. Late dinner. Nightlife. Sleeping late. Explore a little. Eat. Siesta. Repeat.
Here are a few visual highlights of the evenings in Madrid:
Ferdinand’s colleague hooked us up with a penthouse reservation at this bar in Plaza Santa Ana. Amazing views. Delicious cocktails. And a great scene for celebrating Ferdinand’s birthday which happened to be the first night Gabe, Andreas and I arrived.
Nine course dinner at Diverxo lasted until well past midnight. More on this tomorrow!
Flamenco show – a traditional Spanish display of singers, musicians and dancing.
Evening tapas crawls – absolutely delicious and a great inspiration to make it late into the night!
I can’t think of a place I have ever been that is livelier than Madrid at night. A stark contrast from Geneva nightlife and a really fun long weekend. Again, lots of gratitude to Ferdinand and Isabella for giving us a great reason to visit and enjoy this amazing city to the west.
