Madrid has an unbeatable reputation in terms of leisure activities, not limited to its nightclubs. Besides offering an incredible cultural scene (theatre, live music, cinemas…) the city also has a large number of bars, which are the true soul of Madrid’s nightlife.
In Chueca, the popular gay neighborhood, we can find many bars and clubs focused on the gay community. Lately, many of them have decided to offer something else than just a cocktail: a gay cruising area. Cruising bars in Madrid have become a successful meeting point for fetish lovers, BDSM, kinky sex lovers, and curious men. Madrid has become a relevant city and now organizes the yearly Sleazy Festival, one of the finest appointments for gay cruising lovers with parties, DJs and performances.
In this article, we present you some of the main gay cruising bars in Madrid.
Five minutes away from Chueca, it has been (successfully) opened for more than 25 years, every day of the year. This is Strong’s cover letter and it seems to be working. It is the most popular gay cruising bar in Madrid, particularly during the weekend, even when competing against nightclubs. This is the perfect venue to have a drink, enjoy some music and get lost in its huge dark room.
Formerly known as Blue Bar, Attack offers a bar, a chill-out zone, dark room, and dungeons to help locals and tourists find the right way to have fun. Attack bar provides also free Wifi connection, free use of computers, cloakroom service, and happy hour in the bar.

Attack is the perfect place to meet new people and get closer to them (as close as the both of you are up to…).
The guys from Boyberry, who are also present in Barcelona, have opened in Chueca one of the busiest gay cruising bars in Madrid. It is a small bar, attended by hot bartenders and with a very affordable bar. Boyberry has a wide range of clients, from mature guys to young lads who go to this venue not only to enjoy the music and a beer but also to visit the cruising area. During the night another busy cruising spot opens in the basement of the same club, so you can have double the fun!
In the heart of Chueca there is one of the smallest gay cruising bars in Madrid. In The Cage, wearing clothes is optional! It has also become the favorite meeting point for fans of BDSM, fetish, leather, or uniforms. When getting there, customers may leave in the cloakroom whatever clothes they want to (included with entrance fee). Given the high temperatures in this venue, many customers go back to the cloakroom to leave some more clothes… or maybe all of them. Then they are ready to descend to the dungeons area. The Cage is particularly busy on Sunday evening.
One of the best gay cruising bars in Madrid is also one of the smallest and coziest bars. Organic opens the bar early in the evening, and gets busy with men looking for a bit of action in a playground with dark room, slings, cubicles… Everything a fetish lover could ever need. It is located in Chueca and all kind of fetishes are welcome, from nudist to leather or rubbers. When a theme parties go on, a dress code is required.
The streets of Chueca host this small gay cruising bar in Madrid. The Leather Club, besides having a bar area, has large cruising areas all through its three floors. It is particularly popular among mature men. Despite requiring customers to follow a dress code, in practice they are very flexible about it. Leather Club becomes the perfect place for non-dresscode voyeurs who enjoy looking at those who do adhere to it.
