Looking to explore Barcelona’s flamenco scene? These are the bars, restaurants, tablaos and festivals that do it best


Flamenco in Barcelona? Why, yes, thank you. Though you may have heard that flamenco shows in Barcelona simply can’t be authentic because flamenco is from the south of Spain, you may be surprised to find out that the genre’s roots in Barcelona and Catalonia go back nearly two centuries. The biggest names in flamenco, including the great dancer Carmen Amaya, singers and guitarists El Pescaílla, Peret and Gato Pérez, the fathers of Spanish rumba, and many others, roamed this city’s streets and squares, and transformed them into places with a rich (and still thriving) flamenco scene.

Local cantaors (flamenco singers) like Miguel Poveda play to sell-out crowds at the Palau de la Música Catalana and smaller venues such as Luz de Gas, as do singers and guitarists from the south such as Paco de Lucía, Diego de Cigala and Vicente Amigo. Dancers, including Rafael Amargo and Sara Baras, appear at the Liceu. And prestigious festivals such as De Cajón! have helped keep Barcelona at the forefront of the international flamenco scene. Whether you like your shows with a drink, tapas or a full meal, we’ve rounded up the very best places to see flamenco in Barcelona – so put on your dancing shoes and get out there.

    Where to See it from €15.


    The best flamenco show in Barcelona is hard to find, being so far from Andalusia and all. Luckily, the city’s thriving tourist economy brings the best flamenco dancers in from all over the country.

    But which are dance duds and which are the most authentic flamenco shows in Barcelona?

    I’ve taken in the shows to answer the question of where to see flamenco in Barcelona – let’s take a look!

    Where to See the Best Flamenco in Barcelona

    1. Tablao Flamenco Cordobes – Best Flamenco Dinner Show in Barcelona

    When I was teaching English in the city I asked local students where they thought the best flamenco show in Barcelona was – and Tablao Flamenco Cordobes kept coming up.

    I was happy to find out it was right in the heart of the city centre on Las Ramblas, within walking distance of most best Barcelona hotels.

    The theater has a nightly performance with an optional dinner at 6:45 pm and the show at 8:15 pm.

    What to Expect with the Food and Drinks

    If you opt for the dinner package expect an abundant, buffet-style attack on the senses.

    They’ve got some of the best tapas in Barcelona: gazpacho, Galician octopus, lamb chops with saffron potatoes, paella, traditional Catalan noodle dish fideua, wine braised beef, and eight different desserts,

    They even do a great traditional hand cut jamon serrano.

    It’s also possible to get veggie options to rival the best vegetarian restaurants in Barcelona.

    It should be noted that one of the cooks is Jordi Norra, who has been a longtime collaborator with legendary local chef Ferrán Adrià.

    You could also classify them as one of the best bars in Barcelona for traditional Spanish wine and sangria.

    Eating all of these classic Spanish dishes at Barcelona’s best restaurants with wine and sangria can easily run you up to €60.00 a person – so at just a few more euros for a flamenco show, that’s pretty good.

    I suggest going for the full meal deal, though if you’re already good on dinner I’ll show I’ll get into the show tickets shortly.

    🧐  |  Curious yet? Read Tablao Cordobes reviews from recent ticket buyers.

    The Flamenco Performance

    Once the show starts you’ll have all seven flamenco artists take the stage: two on guitar, two singers, two dancers, and one at the cajon.

    The most amazing thing, and this gives it such a tinge of tradition and authenticity, is that the show runs entirely without microphones, speakers, or amplifiers.

    The way the room echoes the passion is something to behold.

    In all, the music hall is not very large and I counted about 100 seats, which makes this quite the intimate affair and comparable to the small group size of traditional flamenco houses of southern Spain.

    Expect to see some of the biggest names in flamenco like Carruco, Camarón, and Manuela Carrasco.

    Each flamenco performance lasts about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

    Without getting too much into spoiler territory, here’s a sneak preview of the passion:

    Tablao Cordobes Flamenco Ticket Options and Prices

    • Show & Dinner (6:45 pm): Adults (€82.00) and children (€41.00)
    • Show & Tapas (6:45 pm): Temporarily unavailable
    • Show & Drinks* (8:15 pm): Adults (€46.00) and children (€23.00)

    *Drink tickets include sangria, beer, wine, or standard soft drinks.

    Show aside, the theater itself is one of Barcelona’s top attractions.

    Whether you’re in the orchestra or upstairs in the balcony you’ll be blown away by the beauty of the only naturally lit auditorium in Europe, the explosion of colour from its mosaics, and that rainbow teardrop chandelier.

    The Flamenco Performance

    Yes, you’ll be in the best flamenco venue in Barcelona.

    Where can I see authentic flamenco in Barcelona?

    Most Barcelona flamenco performances are given by classically trained dancers and musicians who originate from Andalusia. The art form itself is extremely authentic even if the venues do differ from the south of Spain.

    The History of Flamenco in Barcelona and Abroad

    Flamenco was born in the South of Spain in the regions of Andalusia, l’Extremadura, and Murcia in the 18th century. While there is no evidence pinning this phenomenon to an exact time and place, the evolution of the dance was found in gypsy populations living in Spain at the time.

    To create this famous art form, flamenco artists must fuse cante (song), baile (dance), and toque (musicianship).

    The vocal component involves a seated man or woman running the gamut of feelings – joy, tragedy, fear, regret, sadness – through simple, expressive lyrics.

    The dancers purvey passion and courtship over a series of complex steps, the complex technique often varying between sexes. Men tend to be heavier on their feet while woman make more calculated, sensual movements.

    Though originally a mere accompaniment, the raspy and percussive-like guitar playing during these performances has spawned its own genre and has become an essential part to any good flamenco performance.

    In November 2010 flamenco was put on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

    Flamenco in Barcelona today continues to evolve through various interpretations and some of the artists have even become celebrities.

    Before booking I suggest looking up the best flamenco performance videos on Youtube – you can start with guitarist Paco de Lucia an singer Camarón de la Isla.

    Another of my favourites is Carmen Amaya.

Under church vaults, everything is perceived differently than in an ordinary cafe with flamenco.

    Every evening at 21:00 in the Gothic quarter on the square of the same name – Placa del Pi, where the basilica is located, a full central hall gathers to listen to Italian tunes and watch an incendiary dance. There are discounts for students, and children under 10 years old have free admission.

    El Patio Andaluz

    This place has been visited by the royal family of Spain, Stefano Gabbana, Oprah Winfrey and even the English prince. They all appreciated the performance of the famous Jesus Cortes with his guitarists, dancers and singers. In the flamenco they demonstrate, the best elements of this dance, brought from Malaga, Seville and Cordoba, are collected.

    There are two performances per day, which can be viewed at 20:10 and 22:10. For those wishing to purchase unique souvenirs, there is a choice of dresses, shoes, castanets and fans. Children under 8 years of age are admitted free of charge and can go to the show with their parents at C/Rocafort, 231 Bis.


    In this hall you can get a superficial acquaintance with flamenco. The show lasts only half an hour, but even this time is enough to plunge into the spectacular action of the dance, and remain under its impression for a long time.

    Every evening there are three flamenco performances in the hall. The first one starts at 20:30, and after the last one there is a disco at midnight, where hits from the 80s and 90s are played.
