Spain's complex capital

Once little more than a Roman way station and Moorish fort, Madrid owes much of its existence to the fickle patronage of the kings of Spain. The city’s transition from sleepy backwater to imperial capital and modern metropolis has been erratic, leaving Madrid with a complex personality. The crowded flea markets of the Rastro, the green spaces of the Retiro, the Habsburg pomp of Los Austrias and the bold vision of the new Reina Sofia museum are just some of the sides of this multi-faceted city.

A trendy club for music or the latest fashion Editors' Note

The Balcón de Rosales nightclub has a modern image the locals cling to. The club is all about the latest trends, be they music or fashion. Three areas offer guests everything from causal seclusion to mixed socializing and dance. The place affords great views of Casa del Campo too.

A restaurant and DJ’s playing international hits add to enjoyment value here. There is a cover charge and the drinks get a little bit expensive too, but not many seem to be complaining. This is a nice club to enjoy music into the early hours.
