If you want, in the Historic Center, to watch a Flamenco Show, without paying, this is the place. Somewhat hard to find (use Sat Nav, or ask, and ask again...), this is a wide space with cheap drinks and food (not a wide food choice) wehre you can watch a reasonable Flamenco show every 30 mins in each hour, starting...

Not easy to find so suggest you use a sat nav, a map or a gulde - actually all 3 would be preferable. Its down a nondescript alley and can easily be missed. So at the risk of repeating other reviews, the place is rather ropey, with long wooden tables and benches, where position is everything. There is no stage... More

This venue is a good example of a Penas, a more traditional venue for watching Flamenco. Don't be put off by appearances as by day this venue looks very unassuming and doesn't show what is inside. There is very little information about this venue and so we visited early in the week and found that shows started at 9:30. It... More

A passionate, raw performance, topped off with a jug of Sangria! A really great evening's entertainment.

I visited plenty of flamenco shows - all prepared for tourists. The one in La Carboneria was the first one with more authentic feeling. But; at the same time, this has also a downside: the touristic flamenco shows are much more colourful, with more dancers, various clothes; a real show. Here you will see only one (good) dancer, one guitar... More

The beer was good. The Flamenco was spectacular. And the restaurant itself has a cool vibe I think, with looong school-cafeteria style tables and a very pretty outdoor area.

Located in a quondam warehouse of charcoal which unlike the famous flamenco tablao in the city shows, offers for a very slow consumption the opportunity to watch, hear and enjoy a very authentic tablao. The local outside luxuries offers shared tables where having a drink while the show goes on, so is always packed and not very comfortable but it... More

There are probably there kinds of flamenco show - the sanitised version for the tour groups, with half a dozen dancers in matching outfits, the women in the traditional long flounced dress and the men in ruffled shirts; places like the Casa de la Guitarra in Seville, just a guitarist, a singer and a dancer, emotional and technically excellent, with...

We passed the place walking from our hotel and thought it was just a bar selling BBQ food, how wrong we were. After searching on TripAdvisor we found out what it really was and got there for the 9:30 show and stayed for the 10:30 show and were well impressed, didn't do food as we had already eaten but drinks...

This is a large open-concept bar - a wide room with four tables stretching along it, with maybe 35 people on benches on each side of each table - and a half-gallery with not quite as much seating. But everyone can hear, and most can see. We got there a bit after the first show (9:30) started, and were at... More
