  1. Loved the place!

    “I was there last night (Thursday during the World Pride week). The entry was a bit pricey (20 euros) ... But the drinks are super cheap (I had to ask twice if the total bill was 16 or 60 euros, and couldn't believe that it was only 16 euros for 4-5 drinks).

    Lots of action. Lots!!! In every corner. Everyone was doing it. One (major) negative was that lube was hard to find.“

  2. I am not sure

    “Just a small addition to my long review - in fact, I am not sure if the membership fee include or not include a free drink - I've just used the card given at the entrance and pait 5 Euro for a beer and a cola which is not much but perhaps it was just for one drink and the other one was free? Sorry for confusion!“

  3. Perspectives

    “I was at At Substation three times, twice in February and once in May. In general, I liked the club; spacious and well designed even with its slightly confusing configuration of bar, maze and toilets (but it can be fun for newcomers). It's sleazy enough for pigs and sober enough for more vanilla. Small staff is friendly (and good looking). Prices of drinks are reasonable, the entry fee ('membership') seems to me slightly overpriced especially as it does not include any free drink.

    How about the patronage? Well, my first visit was a disappointment; on Thursday night there were no more than twenty guys during my two-and-a-half hour stay. Well, I had fun but of course it could be busier. On Friday night at the door I got a number… one, as the venue opens only at 11.30 PM. More people arrived, of course but it was still far from full. On May 5th arriving well after 1AM - I got number 65 and there were at least thirty guys present. But one must remember that it was only a week after massive parties of Sleazy Madrid.

    Mostly medium-aged crowd, rather bearish, typically walking around in search maybe not a Prince Charming but a decent to grab.

    One important thing for Madrid in general: it is not a fetish town, or better - there are enough hot leather or rubber guys but they hardly play in clubs in gear.

    The whole place looked rather like a naked party (was similar to what I saw the previous night in Berlin's Mutschmann's but it was announced as a naked party).

    Me in my full rubber was an exotic view for Madrid public (Wow, a plastic man!' said one guy touching my latex outfit, clearly not familiar with substances) and it was not something the patrons were looking for.

    I know two other Madrid clubs, Organic and Cage, much smaller and more centrally located in gay area, but I think the remarks concerning Substation can apply also to them. Cage was quite busy during my visit, Organic is very small but friendly and with more relaxed atmosphere (my best play in Madrid was there).

    In sum, At Substation has a very good perspectives, I think as soon as more people turn up, the hotter is the whole thing. Just banal conclusion but I think it's that simple.“

  4. Renegades always speak badly

    “Lots of people agree on this is a Great Fetish Club, only the owner's enemies qualify as dirty, expensive and a place without people, but the truth is that every weekend is really busy and you can find real action. Are there something better you can ask for such an underground place? Envy is really very bad :D !!!“

  6. Necesita opiniones, no vayas

    “Me fascina éste club porque combina lo más infame, lo más fetish y lo moderno a la vez, y justamente ese es su encanto, su ambiente, la actitud de los que asisten, el morbo que se crea por los rincones, hay muy buen rollo, y también me encanta porque no es un local publico sino un club privado en donde (si te admiten para entrar) tienes que hacerte socio y firmar con tu DNI o pasaporte, aceptando una serie de normas y condiciones. Si cuando lo hayas conocido no te gusta, simplemente no vallas más, seguro que nadie te echa en falta la próxima vez, Todo da igual, lo que realmente importa es el morbo total, y por eso se trata de un lugar tan particular. Si necesitas leer opiniones como éstas, o vas buscando en ellas motivos que te convenzan para ir, no lo hagas, ahórrate tu tiempo y dinero. Su mala fama difundida y todo lo malo de que se habla del lugar : que si sucio, que si caro, que si gente mayor, etc etc, justamente es lo que día tras día, le hace más popularmente "infame" (palabra que en el argot fetish y para todos sus entendidos significa todo lo contrario). Por mi parte yo no quiero contribuir a recomendarlo a nadie, No vallaís nadie, ya somos bastantes !!! no me gustaría que otros que quizás no pinten nada enturbien el ambiente actual tan privado y morboso de actitud de los que asiduamente vamos. Seria toda una pena que eso ocurriese !!!
    Pero finalmente, yo no voy a ser menos que nadie, y también voy a contribuir hablando mal del sitio, aunque sé que con ello, voy a alimentar su publicidad gratuita y con ello contribuir sin querer a crearles más morbo aún, que es lo que los del club están buscando, pero bueno, diré también que la cuota de socio que tienen de acceso es cara, aunque por ser un club privado (ojo, que no un lugar público !!! ) permiten fumar (como en cualquiera de los demás clubes privados o asociaciones donde la mayoría de sus socios así lo han decidido)“

  7. Muy sucio y caro. Extremely dirty and expensive.

    “Música y ambientación bastante bien, a tono con la tipología del cliente.
    Han subido aún más el precio de entrada pero no invierten en limpieza y servicios al cliente. Los aseos están EXTREMADAMENTE SUCIOS el resto del local apenas se aprecia porque está bastante oscuro pero el piso se siente pegajoso y huele raro. Poca ventilación. Se permite fumar incumpliendo la normativa. Hay muy pocos puntos de papel o están vacios y menos aún papeleras. Jamás he visto personal limpiando o recogiendo vasos. Las copas escasitas.

    En definitiva, si cobran tan cara la entrada debían cuando menos cuidar más al cliente y ofrecer y local muy limpio con servicios decentes y no tratar al cliente como una manada y tenerlos como sardinas en lata con el único propósito de sacarles los euros. Un abuso vamos.“

  8. Infamous big club with a very amazing, inviting and attractive underground athosphere.

    “Due to is a private club, there´s a very strict door policy, they has a mandatory membership, so you have to show your passport or id on door and sign to get inside. I found different types and ages of men into fetish, kinky, sexdance, etc. The music was usually very impressive, some kind ofunderground techno, electronic or avant-garde sounds. Also I remember that the sound system was really powerfull and clear on the dance-floor area, there are often big names on the Dj line-up, but you'd be surprised of the talent of their dj team that maybe you've never heard of, but if they play in this club there'll be a good reason. In my opinion bad reviews are what make this place really attractive and disturbing. I could not resist visiting it, I really really enjoyed myself, and I will go back again whenever i can, so I strongly recommend it, but only for all those who are seeking another kind of experiential and alternative clubs.“

  9. Fantástico, gente morbosa y con mucho rollo y actitud

    “Mis felicitaciones por vuestro club, morboso cien por cien y a la vez un espacio muy de moda en la línea underground internacional del momento que se diferencia enormemente del resto. Me encantan los findes, especialmente las fiestas de los sabados, muy concurridas con tíos muy buenos, muy buen rollo y muy buena musica y djs, las luces lo más. Seguid en esa línea y que las feas se vallan a otro lado !! je je un saludo chicos y siempre buen rollo!“

  11. Amazing underground fetish atmosphere

    “We really like and appreciate this club for many reasons: reasonable prices, very crowded specially on weekends, very friendly staff, great music and the best of all: their amazing underground fetish atmosphere, where everybody is having lots of fun, highly recommended and not suitable for renegade people. Please take the best of positive reviews, and don't believe embittered people who can not have fun anytime and anywhere, they only enjoy posting complains and negative opinions about everything, and that behavior really shows them how negative and mean they are.“

    “Big underground fetish club with a very interesting dancing/drinking zone with DJs and a large playground in different rooms with cabins, bunk beds, wet area, labyrinths, etc. Very crowded specially on weekends, with horny leather- and fetishmen and lots and lots of hot action. The membership fee was acceptable. The staff really competent. I had a blast. Very recommended.“

  15. Never again

    “For whatever reason, very few people decided to show Naked the last Saturday. The place was three-quarters empty at its most crowded continues to disappoint.

    The Bartender was so bitchy I wanted to have a beer but he didn't serve! Can you believe it?

    I tried to know the rule which he may have been motivated. I am 30 years old. I was well party dressed with decent look.

    I can not change the bad experience which is already happened in past with me but at least I can share my experience with people so you can take best decisions.“

  16. Underground industrial, atmósfera con morbo

    “Aunque les pese a sus detractores, es un hecho que éste club es el mejor en el género fetish en Madrid. Sus instalaciones tipo underground industrial, su excelente música electrónica, sus DJs en directo, su trayectoria, y lo más importante aún: la atmósfera conseguida en todo momento con cada uno de éstos elementos, lo sitúan al nivel de los mejores espacios del mismo estilo y genero en Europa. No obstante, y en mi opinión, los que son miserables sólo y exclusivamente se fijarán en el precio y nunca en los mejores detalles, jamás asistirán ni a éste ni a ningún otro lugar con la mejor actitud y miras para divertirse, sólo para quejarse, ya que es ésa su única meta. Lamentablemente ése tipo de asistentes son los que menos aportan y paradójicamente los que más exigen, pero también al final, a los que menos caso se les hace.“

  18. Altamente interesante

    “Suelo ir en muchas ocasiones pero en especial los fines de semana y más concretamente los sábados noches o vísperas de fiesta. El club me gusta porque tiene un estilo muy underground en donde en mi opinión, consiguen crear una atmósfera muy moderna. La pista de baile, luces, música y sus Djs marcan definitivamente la gran diferencia con el resto de otros lugares similares de la ciudad, por eso prefiero éste club, porque va más allá de lo meramente establecido por el resto, y un buen porcentaje de sus asistentes me parecen mucho más actuales ya que interactúan bailando. Los precios de cuotas de socio varían según los días que abre, por lo que a mi no me parecen nada caro en comparación con otros locales que por ejemplo, no llevan incluido el ropero, además suelo recibir frecuentemente por e-Mail, boletines de ofertas con precios reducidos o acceso gratuito para determinadas noches.“

    “Altamente interesante. Suelo ir en muchas ocasiones pero en especial los fines de semana y más concretamente los sábados noches o vísperas de fiesta. El club tiene un estilo muy underground que me gusta bastante donde consiguen crear una atmósfera muy moderna. Su pista de baile, luces, música y Djs y los tíos guapos y mórbosos en Fetish, que por esa zona se encuentran buscando diversión y demás, marcan definitivamente la gran diferencia con el resto de otros sex-clubs mediocres de la ciudad, a los cuales los asistentes sólo van para tener sexo de forma compulsiva y mecánica, sin relacionarse socialmente entre ellos, por eso prefiero éste club, porque va más allá de lo meramente establecido por el resto, y un buen porcentaje de sus asistentes me parecen mucho más actuales ya que interactúan bailando entre ellos. Los precios de cuotas de socio varían según los días que abre, por lo que a mi no me parecen nada caro en comparación con otros locales que por ejemplo, no llevan incluido el ropero.

    “Is a private club, the place is a big basement really crowded. Music and lights are superb creating a great underground atmosphere, lots of different spaces full of mazes, rooms and corridors with amazing industrial interior design. They have different events each day. Smoking is also allowed. The price of membership access is quite reasonable for everything offered. Their attendees are eager to have fun, so this place is highly recommended in comparison with many other in the city.“

    “It's little expensive to get in, but the venue is perfect! I went there for an event. Large play area, hot guys, most of them are naked, some in jockstraps. Mixed ages, manly looking hot hairy guys. Kinky dirty atmosphere. Few cubicals with doors but most action out in open areas. Separate are for water sports. Small bar and a dance floor, but I didn't see anyone dancing. This is more a action venue. If you're into kinky dark fetish fun this is the place.“

    “Una supuesta preferencia a dejar entrar al comienzo solo gente joven, perfilarse con un sitio pijo, las copas rácanas, estar entre vallas de encierro de algun pueblo, y un oscilante y ascendente precio de la entrada, ya han colmado el vaso, y muchos somos los que nos dimos media vuelta y negarnos a tragar tanto capricho .

    “The owners failed with another closed bar : Odarko for the same reason they are daring thisone : Too expensive to be only a sexbar.
