Gay Madrid 2017 – 2018
The main Gay Madrid scene is in an area called Chueca. Madrid has a lively, raunchy gay scene. There are several cruise bars and most bars have dark rooms, where just about anything goes. The gay area, Chueca, is in the old quarter at the center of Madrid. It’s a tightly compact area, actually two areas a short distance apart. Madrileños like all Spaniards tend to party late, going out to eat at 10 pm, hitting the bars at 1 am. and on to the discos about 4 am.
Madrid is the capital and largest city of Spain. The population of the city is over 3 million and that of the Madrid metropolitan area, over 6 million. It is the third-largest city in the European Union, after London and Berlin, and its metropolitan area is the third-largest in the European Union after Paris and London. The city is located on the Manzanares River in the centre of Spain. Buen Retiro Park (Parque del Buen Retiro) contains the only tribute to The Fallen Angel (Satan) in the world. Ironically or not so ironically, the area surrounding it, just happens to Madrid’s main gay cruising zone!
