We loved the Moijtos and the DJ at iReal on Calle de Echegaray
Sol & Camera also had a great DJ, dance floor, and awesome bathrooms!No matter where we've traveled in Europe, we somehow always manage to find ourselves in an Irish Pub! I'm pretty sure it was called The Dublin? There was also an O'Connors right next to it. Pretty sure we went to both.
A little comfort thrown in for good measure never hurt,
neither did an American football game on TV.Often times, our nights ended up being a jumbled mix of all the local spots - cervecerías, a tapas bar here, a disco-bar there, a pub somewhere in between....Although Madrid has a number of popular neighborhoods in terms of nightlife, the entertaining, high energy hot spots in Plaza Santa Ana have a lot to offer. They're an absolute blast!
Sometimes, we made friends. And sometimes, we took photos (and shots) with said friends.
Honestly, who are these people? Probably our best friends for about an hour.
And how awesome is this guy?
Otros Mahou, por favor!Amicable bartenders, strong drinks, no covers, high energy, good vibes and lots of dancing to American and Spanish top 40 hits - we clearly developed an affection for the streets in our neighborhood that came alive at night.
