I have yet to experience the actual club scene but so far I really appreciate the way Madrid drinks.
1. It's cheap. I haven't had to pay more than 12 euros for at least 5 drinks. AND we get snacks.
2. As I mentioned, snacks are abundant and complimentary. Whether it's olives, crackers, slices of jámon or popcorn, they got the munchies covered.
3. The drinking culture - in at least Madrid- seems to be more about enjoying company versus getting really shit-faced. I mean don't get me wrong. I know they can get down but I haven't seen a lot of "hammered" peeps on the street. Then again, it is only Friday. I'll get back to you about the weekend.
Wish my friends were here but it was pretty fun getting tipsy with mom at a random bar. Haha
