This cool little nightspot, Cafe la Palma, is a great place for going out in Madrid; divided into three different sections, allowing you a varied night depending on what you're in the mood for. The bar area is always buzzing with conversation, and gets busy - but not too busy - come the weekend. In the middle of the venue is a chill-out area, complete with thick rugs and comfy cushions, where you can enjoy a beverage horizontally.
The main sala, meanwhile, is dedicated to live music, with a carefully picked roster of local acts. The loyal crowd regularly pay to see acts they've never heard of before - such is the trust in the Café
