Madrid is a favorite among backpackers.

Many people explore Spain on a road trip, hopping from one city to another. The nightlife in Madrid is a little different from that in nothern European countries.

Madrid has a bit of the both worlds, the contemporary west and the traditional Southern European style bars. There are some expensive hotspots while there are many things to do on a budget. If you wish to explore nightlife in Madrid on a low budget, then you must have the right plan and the right approach.

You have to decide what all you wish to do and in what sequence. You can’t trapse around the city in one night and hope to explore it all. You can start off your evening by visiting a few places which do not charge you any penny or you can go for a drink.

Should you decide to explore some places for free then you can start with the museums that have free hours or you can visit the free exhibits, concerts and films. If you are a movie buff then you would love the plenty of films that are played for free.  The exhibits and concerts are also a treat for the right pair of eyes and ears.

If you wish to get started with a drink then you should hit the bars where you can grab a beer and get free tapas.

This is a favorite among backpackers. You can pay for the beer and a sumptuous plate of tapas would be absolutely free. Unless you are very hungry or you have a fascinatingly huge appetite, this free plate of tapas would take care of you for a major part of the night.

There are some places where you can jam with jazz sessions. It is absolutely free. If you are a musician or have one in your group then this can be a very fun experience. As you would imagine, such places also provide you with drinks at economic prices.
