Halloween 2013 is coming! 
How important is Halloween in your country? If you’re reading this in the United States, we’re sure you already have a pumpkin on the porch and are busily figuring out your fancy dress with your friends for the big night this Thursday! Once this was a uniquely American holiday, but Halloween has really caught on in Spain – of course, who can resist the sweets, trick or treats and the lively atmosphere of Halloween? So read on to discover why a Spanish  Halloween in Madrid is one you will never forget!



Madrid at night – Halloween to remember!


Once upon a time, Halloween was just for little kids, but those days are long gone! Now, people of all ages enjoy celebrating on the night of the 31st October. As we already know, Madrid is the Spanish party capital with nightlife second to none, so don’t doubt for a second that the Halloween parties in this city will blow your mind! So throw on your fancy dress, round up your friends and get down to these buzzing hotspots for a once-a-year blowout! 

Of course, the most famous nightclub in Madrid, the one and only Kapital (Calle Atocha 105, Madrid 28012) will throw a party befitting its reputation as the best hotspot in Madrid! Make sure to get there early, because the place will be busy and once you get in, you won’t want to leave! 

The Moby Dick club (Avda de Brasil 5, Madrid 28020) is the best choice for Indie kids who are looking for a down-to-earth, laugh-a-minute night out in Madrid! This Halloween the music will be provided by The Exploding Boys and the party promises to be one to remember!

For those who like to keep things laidback and cool, Areia Colonial Chillout (Calle Hortaleza, 92, Madrid 28004) is the place for you! This Halloween they will be hosting a Voodoo Night, starting at 23.30 and with free entry!

It’s worth mentioning that for the lucky Spaniards, the 1st November is All Saints Day, a holiday in catholic countries like Spain, so there is no excuse not to head out for a thrilling Halloween night with the Madrileños!
Yikes! Do you think you 
can find a better costume!
