The Gay scene in Madrid is in an area called Chueca. Madrid has a lively, raunchy gay scene. There are many cruise bars and most bars have dark rooms, where just about anything goes. The gay area, Chueca, is in the old quarter in the center of Madrid. It’s a tightly compact area, actually two areas a short distance apart. Madrileños like all Spaniards tend to party late.
