Some of the most spontaneous good times can be created around the Plaza Mayor, Plaza Azoguejo, and the busy Calle del Carmen that runs into the Plaza Azoguejo. Each of those sites contains a scattering of simple bars and cafes that grow more crowded at night as the days grow hotter. If you want to go dancing, two of the most popular discos are Mansión, Calle de Juan Bravo (no phone), which is open nightly from 11pm till dawn for dancing, drinking, and flirting with the 20- to 30-year-old crowd; and its somewhat more stylish competitor, Bar Ginasio, Paseo del Salon (no phone), which is open nightly from 8pm till dawn; it's a bit more atmospheric and frequented by night-owls ages 25 to around 50.
