Girls get in for free. Guys have to pay 15€. You need to be on a guest list to get in. This is through Facebook. 33cl bottle of beer: 20€!!!! 0,5l bottle of water: 15€. Biggest scam all over Madrid. Keep away from this pile..

I have seen here negative reviews about bad safety and service there. I didn't notice anything like that, but we didn't come for a party, as for performance by Asaf Avidan. It was really great and club looks beautiful.
