Gay Madrid

The main gay area in Madrid is called Chueca (Pronounced Choo-aye-ka). 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 10pm, hitting the bars at 1am. and on to the discos about 4am.
Madrid will host WorldPride 2017.
