The gayest of the Arena clubs
The Arena group operates a "conjunto" or group of dance clubs, all located near one another, and Arena Madre is the gayest of the bunch. The crowd here is younger gays looking for other younger gays. Nightly themes like strippers, foam party, hand bags and drag.

      I had a good time
      We went to one of the Arena clubs. Definitely a younger crowd than what we were looking for. Music was ok with a few hits. Your classic European back room where not much happens really. Theme nights might be a bit more interesting I guess.

      young crowd
      Definitely younger crowd than I usually prefer but music was high energy and I danced non stop so it wasn't a bad experience for me.

      Disney World Theme. One Price For All Clubs
      There are several Arena bars, and when you pay admission in one, you get stamped and don't have to pay if you visit the other Arena Disco/Bars permutations: Like Disney World. All the clubs decor seemed alike to me, only the group/age is the relative factor. The bars also carry a very limited variety of alcohol and cordials; compared to US bars. But I discovered that is accross the boad in Spain. In one Arena bar I asked for a chilled shot Patron Silver, and he looked at me totally clueless. It's tequila I said; their premium brand is only Cuervo Gold/Silver. On the next Arena bar I asked another bartender for Grey Goose on ice, and he said “this is a bar, not a restaurant”. He probably can't count his balls twice and get the same number. The I asked for an Absolut komakasi vodka drink. They don't know how to mix different alcohols, and forget asking for anything like a frozen tequila. You can see were I'm heading. After doing the rounds to the four “Unique” bars I left within an hour. The music is 90's and the percentage of people that smoke in the bars is roughly 90%. I was afraid a fire could develop if a drunk kid tossed a lighted cigarette in the wrong place, but after looking around to see what people were wearing to the disco I was relieved. If a fire started I would be protected by enough fire retardant polyester fabric being worn by the crown.
