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.

Nightly surprise entertainment

Nightly surprise entertainment Editors' Note

Ristorante Topolino is an old favorite among the locals of Madrid. The fashionable night spot pretty much offers up a “pot luck” entertainment agenda. Everything from cabaret performances to salsa and live merengue serve for living up the place. Expect food, wine and song, all night long

Patrons of this club tend to be of the student persuasion, but a celebrity or two have been known to haunt the place. Shows usually get cranked up around 11 PM, but drinks and socializing before is the local procedure. A nice place, if you don’t mind surprises.
