Lonely Planet review for Akbar
All decked out in red and drawing a multicultural crowd, Akbar is slightly more nuanced than your average Madrid nightclub. It plays chill-out early in the evening, before upping the tempo to funk, R&B and soul, but it’s not averse to a little rap or hip-hop if the mood takes it. There are cushions on the floor and occasional live bands (Wednesday at 8.30pm).
