Artists from all the cities of Spain.

What makes this flamenco tablao unique is the artists that compose it. The best professionals of dance, singing and flamenco guitar, brought from all over Spain. It is currently the only one that accepts the weekly travel and accommodation expenses of artists who do not live in Madrid, to bring them to the show.

The best show at the moment?

This probably is the best flamenco show at present. You only have to consult their programming and do a little research in the biography of these artists to check it out. In this Tablao, artists are capable of generating a brutal and wild energy that connects with the audience being different in each of the sessions.

Names of remarkable artists in their recent shows.

Among the most notable artists they have brought recently, we can highlight Farruquito, Remedios Amaya, Antonio Canales, Alfonso Losa, Karime Amaya, El Yiyo, Fuensanta La Moneta, Pepe Tores, El Choro Molina, etc.

Essence, tradition and modernity.

The Tablao Flamenco Cardamomo keeps the essence and the roots combined with modernity. Pioneer in modern details, Cardamomo moves away from the idea that flamenco is exclusively for experts and although it has a large part of their audience that is tourist, both Spanish from other provinces and foreigners, it offers artists worthy of the Teatro Real, but for an audience 10 times smaller.

Cardamomo Flamenco Madrid is located at Calle Echegaray number 15, a few meters from Puerta del Sol.

Origins of Cardamomo Flamenco Madrid.
In its origins in 1994, it was a meeting point where authentic masters of flamenco, such as Enrique Morente, Diego el Cigala or Tomatito, met daily. These meetings, which always ended with alegrías or rumbas, cried out for a stage. And so it was. Today we find in the same location, 30 years later, one of the best flamenco tablaos in the world, which preserves the familiar feeling and close atmosphere.
Daily shows.
Cardamomo offers four daily shows in which singing, guitar playing and dancing are felt live, leaving an indelible mark on everyone who visits. Is impossible that two shows are the same, because the flamenco team dares to improvise by focusing on the present moment. These impulses added to the professionalism and technique of Cardamomo's artists, result in a unique show capable of touching people from all over the world.

Children's audience.
In this tablao we have always taken into account the children audience. We claim that Flamenco is culture and tradition, and for its preservation it is essential to show it to new generations. For this reason they have reduced prices and schedules adapted for children. Especially recommended in this regard the 18:00 show that takes place every afternoon. In addition, they are the creators of the Documentary "Flamenco is also a children's thing", a unique audiovisual document, in which great masters of flamenco have participated, such as Raimundo Amador, Camarón de Pitita or Juan Carmona, and of course the children, which they sponsored themselves in the artistic sense. They are also creators of other types of initiatives aimed at the little ones, such as flamenco scholarships for talented children, etc.
Objectives of their child-oriented initiatives.
The objective of these initiatives is that the discipline of flamenco, already catalogued as Intangible Heritage of Humanity, is transmitted to the new generations, and is preserved regardless of the passing of time. The art of the girls and boys who star in this documentary shows how the mix between the natural expression of flamenco and the commitment to learning this discipline, results in great promises for flamenco guitar playing, dancing and singing.
Cardamomo has a kind of enchantment where the purest authenticity of Flamenco emerges.
Dinner. Cardamomo Tablao Flamenco offers few dining options, focusing on having the best flamenco show in Madrid. However, they have a master and award-winning ham cutter, Oscar Gaitan, to enjoy this delicacy of Spanish cuisine, in addition to a Tapas menu, very economical and very high quality.
It is worth experiencing this true Flamenco show in the heart of Madrid.

The Flamenco Cultural Center of Madrid opens its doors in 2019 in a 19th century manor house recently restored, but preserving its granite and solid brick walls, although from the outside its appearance is like another building in the city center. Located in the neighborhood of Chueca, Calle del Conde de Xiquena 6, we find an intimate and small space to experience flamenco up close from seats like those of a theater.

The venue, before accessing the show space, has an exhibition of paintings, fans, shawls and castanets. In addition to their shows, they offer book and record presentations, conferences, flamenco fashion shows, painting and photography exhibitions, etc., making it a multiple space.

Centro Cultural stage
Recently, after the pandemic, the management has changed and the new owner is a Brazilian dancer with a long career in flamenco. The particularity of this flamenco space is that they do not use loudspeakers, since they have good acoustics, due to the reduced space for a capacity of 60 people. The concept is different from that of a tablao flamenco or a theater. They do not offer food or drink and the small room is air-conditioned and accessible for people with reduced mobility. It is open from Wednesday to Saturday at 18:00h and 19:30h. General admission is 25 euros, but the price for people from Madrid is 22 euros and for children from 6 to 12 years old the price is 14 euros.
Centro Cultural Show
Name of show: "Lorca Poeta Flamenco", a show in the poems of first songs or Poema del Cante Jondo of the universal poet from Granada Federico García Lorca. "Tardes de Tablao Flamenco". A tribute to the culture and flamenco tradition of the city with the artistic direction of Pedro Cordoba. In May, after its recent reopening, the program included the dancers Salomé Ramírez, Vanesa Coloma, Lisi Sfair and the singer Jose Luis Hernández. And the artists were Victor "El Tomate", Joni Jiménez and Alejandro País.

Casa Patas is another tablao where you can enjoy a good flamenco show in Madrid. Located in Street Cañizares number 10 we find this castizo nook through which many of the great flamenco lineage have passed.

Casa Patas is divided into two areas: the tavern restaurant and the flamenco tablao. The clients can combine them, watching the show at the same time as they taste an exquisite traditional and select food, or use only one of them.

Casa Patas Tablao Stage
In this Tablao, there are also Masterclasses of flamenco managed by professionals. There is also the possibility of making private use of some of the spaces, such as the “Café cantante” of the Casa Patas Foundation, located at the upper part of the Tablao.
More than thirty years of work and dedication guarantee the quality of the flamenco show that you can find in Casa Patas.

El Corral de la Morería is a family-owned flamenco tablao founded in 1956, located in the centre of the city and known worldwide. It is the place chosen by numerous Hollywood actors, high government officials, members of royal families, etc. to experience Flamenco. Recently, the Corral has marked a milestone in the flamenco tablaos with the acquisition of a Estrella Michelín. And it’s no surprise, because their food is exquisite.

The Michelin star has been the icing on the cake with which the gastronomy of this flamenco tablao has been crowned, as it had previously been awarded up to six times for its delicious and varied menus.

Headed by the chef David García, the Corral de la Morería has become a Tablao – Restaurant that also has one of the most attractive wine cellars in Spain, where you can enjoy a high quality flamenco show while delighting your palate. Without a doubt, the best mix between flamenco and culinary art.

Blanca Rey, a wonderful flamenco choreographer and dancer, is the owner and artistic director of the Corral. She makes an excellent selection of artists who delight the public with daily shows where you can see the authenticity and purity of the flamenco feeling nearby. The handicap  that we find to this Flamenco tablao is the price. So if in addition to enjoying the show you want to try the refined gastronomic offer, the contact with flamenco will have a cost of around 100 euros per person.
In Addition to the Estrella Michelín, The Corral it’s the only one in the world that has won a Sun of the Repsol Guide. David García has managed to merge the gastronomy and flamenco with a very personal bet. The artistic programming varies every week according to the present day.

The Café de Chinitas in Malaga was known by flamencos from all over Spain, one of its most remarkable clients was the poet Federico García Lorca, who contributed greatly to making known the place through the popular composition “Café de Chinitas” (1931) in form of legend.

This little flamenco corner was closed by the authorities in the middle of the Civil War. And fifty years later, the Verdasco family decided to move their show to Madrid.

This Tablao Flamenco can be found in street de la Torija number 7, in an 18th century palace. An elegant and folkloric place to enjoy live flamenco.

Essential Flamenco is located in a place that opened its doors in 1990 as a discotheque, combining this activity with that of a flamenco tablao show a few years ago and baptizing it with the Anglo-Saxon name Essential Flamenco. The venue is recently renovated and has a pleasant atmosphere, and although the space dedicated to the shows is very small, it has a total of 500 m2 in which it also houses a quality Spanish souvenir store and a flamenco bookstore.

(Español) Íntimo escenario para flamenco
In the room, the audience is seated in a semicircle, surrounding the artists, as they think, as it used to be in gypsy family parties. And although it is true that it is very close to the artists, the space does not allow to enlarge it any more. They use live sound, without loudspeakers. The vaulted brick basement has good acoustics. This is good to feel the natural voices but makes it a little difficult to reach the guitar. In any case, they achieve the desired intimacy, leaving the audience very close to the stage, creating a private atmosphere.
(Español) Escenario íntimo flamenco.
In this tablao (flamenco shows venue) they do not serve food before or during the show. On the one hand it is good and on the other hand it is a lesser service.

Near the legendary bullring of Ventas we find another good quality tablao, closely related to the world of the bullfighting. La Quimera, is characterized by being strictly conservative in the classic art of flamenco.

Conservative and purist Art

La Quimera is affordable for all the budgets.

From their direction they propose different options to enjoy the show, with or without dinner. It is important to mention that it is one of the few flamenco tablaos in which we find the option of having lunch while watching the show.

In addition, you will be able to receive your first flamenco dance class right there, given by the dancers who will make you fall in love on the stage. In their daily shows, you won’t find anything that entered the world of  flamenco in the 20th century. A show that recreates the purist and classic. There is no place for instruments such as the flute or violin, where palmas, taconeo and voices without a microphone take centre stage.
Stage Tablao La Chimera
For the environment, purity, and especially because the great flamenco has always chosen to expose their art. A Tablao is the place where you can see a real flamenco show.
It’s in the Tablaos Flamencos where the humble and heartbreaking art, deep feeling and a universal artistic language are born. All the great flamenco artists go through them at different moments of their careers. It is time to demystify the idea that Tablaos are places for tourists.
