Hitting to top of the list is a night on the town in Madrid where Las Tablas is a great small venue to start the night off. Here you can watch flamenco at 8pm and 10pm while enjoying a few drinks. If you want to get your own dance on then you can move on over to Marula. There a DJ spinning a wide variety of tunes will keep you rocking all night. For those who are really looking to party a little harder in Madrid, the best option might be to take the Partybus. This is a one way ticket to hit the hottest clubs while avoiding queues and meeting plenty of locals who often use the bus to get to clubs quicker.

Barcelona offers a wide range of places to drink and dance the night away while giving a slightly different party atmosphere. For gin and whiskey lovers you absolutely have to check out Old Fashioned, a Gin & Tonic and Cocktail Bar. This cozy vintage style bar has top-notch bartenders who know their stuff and while the drinks on offer are not the cheapest, they are definitely worth it. Rubi Bar is off the beaten path but is worth seeking out. They offer a wide variety of great mojitos at a reasonable price and the place has an overall good vibe. This may be a great way to start the night off. If shots are your thing then you must check out Espit Chupitos where the Finding Nemo and the Harry Potter shots are two drinks to sample.

Seville has a great night vibe with top bars and clubs.
