• Arrival to Madrid Barajas Airport (MAD) and transfer to the hotel. Welcome and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure to start exploring the city.
Madrid is a vibrant city that doesn’t sleep and it’s not uncommon to see last nights’ partiers walking home at 8am in the morning while grandma is going for her morning walk. We’d argue it’s perhaps the gayest capital city in Europe, or at least contending with Berlin and London. Chueca is the center of the LGBT community in Madrid where you’ll find the highest concentration of gay bars and night clubs.

The thriving fetish scene in Madrid offers up plenty of cruise and gay sex bars and clubs to check out. One of the most famous - and popular - is Strong Center: you can drink, dance and have fun over several zones.
Attack, The Ring and Naked Bar are also popular gay cruising venues in Madrid. Naked is a great option should you like to get your kink on as the venue regularly hosts themed parties, but with one simple rule: be naked! Be sure to check out their website for the gay party schedule. Lastly, Boyberry in Chueca is another must: it’s a gay bar, sex club and shop, and is always busy.
