Stay up all night in Madrid

Madrid nights are legendary. Make like a local by sticking to one barrio (district) per night, whether it’s for cocktails in Chueca, old-style sherry bars in Huertas or tapas in La Latina.
The shopping street of Gran Vía in Madrid

Chueca

1 DEL DIEGO

Madrid’s best cocktail bars are on Calle de la Reina and Gran Vía in Chueca, home to a cool and predominantly gay clientele. New York style Del Diego is the sort of place where the music rarely drowns out the conversation and the signature Diego cocktail – vodka, advocaat, apricot brandy and lime – takes some beating (deldiego.com; Calle de la Reina, 12; closed Sun; cocktails from £7).

2 MUSEO CHICOTE

The founder of this Madrid landmark, with its ’30s-era interior, is said to have invented over 100 cocktails, which the likes of Ernest Hemingway, Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner and Sophia Loren all enjoyed at one time or another. It’s still frequented by film stars and socialites, and is at its best after midnight, when a lounge atmosphere takes over(museo-chicote.com;Gran Vía, 12; closed Mon; cocktails from £7).
