‘Girls night out’ is a very popular term everyone is familiar with, right? But we believe that guys also deserve a quality ‘boys night out’ once in a while.
Whether it’s to celebrate someone’s birthday, throw a bachelor party or just planning a night to hang out with your best buds – there’s nothing like spending quality time with your friends.
If you’re already planning an unforgettable night, why not go large and travel for it? We recommend flying to Madrid, where you can savor a blend of European history and lively nightlife. All you need to do is book your flight, get a hotel or a big vacation apartment (so all your friends can stay together) and we will take care of your entertainment plans.
Here are our top five recommended local attractions that you and your guys can enjoy in style:
Sala de Despiece is all about prime ingredients: choice beef, regional cheeses, and peak-of-the-season vegetables. The unique decor of this place surrounds a bar that pays tribute to the traditional tapas method of serving food with an open kitchen. There is also a separate room that is called “The Butcher’s Room”, which they use to prepare the fresh meat and catch of the day. This is a great spot to start your night out sampling great food and mingling with the local Spanish crowd.
If you like drinking beer or even if you don’t, this brewpub is a must-visit when you hang out with your ‘brus’. When Fábrica Maravillas opened in 2012, they were the only establishment in Madrid to craft their own beer! The place itself is designed with exposed wood and brick, giving it a contemporary feel. They have 6 different flavors of beer, and we recommend tasting them all before heading out to your next adventure.
Located on the rooftop of Hotel ME Madrid, Radio Rooftop Bar is the place where you can see and be seen with the model look-alike locals. It has striking tropical decor and offers culinary shows and assorted musical performances, as well as a wide selection of signature cocktails. This is one of the hottest spots you can find in town, so you better dress to the occasion and plan to mingle with the top Madrid has to offer.
After eating and drinking, how about you add a bit of a regional flavor to your night out with an authentic Flamenco show at Café Ziryab? A spot mostly known to locals, it was founded by a Flamenco dancer who makes sure to book the best dancers and musicians in town. Enjoy an aromatic glass of wine with an uplifting performance that will make you feel alive.
After a really busy and fun night, you and your buddies are most likely to have worked up an appetite again for some delicious comfort food. Bodega La Ardosa is the place that you would want to end your night at. This is easily one of the best restaurants open late in Madrid if you’re craving local Spanish favorites. This place will make you feel like a long time Madridian and end that guys night out with a full stomach and a big grin on your face.
