Reasons to visit Madrid in your 20s

Why not begin your day with a little shopping. Madrid is home to all of the major fashion houses, along with a few independent designers as well.

However, if you are visiting the city on a budget, then you can spend time in more-well known high street stores such as Mango or Zara.

After a bit of shopping, why not head over to one of the various indoor markets the city has. For a spot of lunch and a few glasses of wine or beer, head over to Mercado de San Miguel in district El Centro.

For the afternoon you might want to consider taking a tour of the city. But for you guys – and even some of you girls – no visit to the city would be complete without heading over to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Home to the city’s world famous football team Real Madrid.

As you can imagine and like other city’s, Madrid comes alive at night. There are plenty of wonderful cafes and restaurants you can enjoy. Plus of course numerous bars where you can enjoy some more beer and wine with a few tapas.

But if you really want to get your evening off to a great start why not look up. Through out the city there are plenty of hotels and historic buildings that have roof terraces. Here you are able to soak up the city’s nightlife, whilst enjoying some great music, accompanied by your favourite drink or two. Plus, they offer you views of the city you aren’t likely to find anywhere else.

Once your relaxed now is the time for heading out to sample some of the many nightclubs and other places that stay open until the early hours. Why not make your first stop of the evening to Bar Camp. Every night they have live DJs and the beverages on offer are absolutely delicious.

Follow this by heading to Ducados. You can visit during the day as it has a stylish restaurant. But at night this is when it really comes to life, when it becomes a tapas bar and club. After dancing the night away in its basement, head up to ground level and enjoy a spot of fresh air and some al fresco drinking.

Why not round off your night/morning and head over to San Gines chocolaterie. This is open 24/7, and it is the place to get your energy back. Why not relax on one of their many green couches whilst enjoying a few churros and some chocolate.
