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.

An Oriental-inspired alternative disco

An Oriental-inspired alternative disco Editors' Note

Kathmandu, a Madrid club, is the place to be for those in search of an energizing music and dance experience. The club plays modern beats of jazzy funk, hip-hop, reggae and jungle ensembles.

Kathmandu is an Oriental-inspired alternative disco that takes each day into the next with great edgy music and dancing all night long. Tibetan textiles flowing from the ceiling decorate the bar upstairs, while part of the downstairs is adorned with Nepalese art. The dance floor, often overcrowded, is the place to be in this Madrid hotspot.
