The 12 Best Places to Watch Flamenco in Seville

The Best Places to Watch Flamenco in Seville

When you hear people talk about flamenco, you will often hear the word duende thrown about. This is a word with no exact translation, but what they are referring to is the spirit of the performance; the passion on display. No one knows for sure where flamenco was born, but it was certainly in southern Spain, between Seville, Cadíz and Granada. Seville however is the most important pillar nowadays to see some of the best flamenco in the world. What follows are, in our opinion, the twelve best places to watch flamenco in Seville.

12 – El Patio Sevillano

Paseo de Cristobal Colon 11

Flamenco developed as a way for the gypsies to express the sadness of their downtrodden lives. As such, many of the first flamenco performances happen in bars as these passionate souls got to talking about their dejection but found words not enough to express their woe. It is for this reason that I say some of the most authentic, and therefore best, places to watch flamenco in Seville are in these bars. One of the best laid out of these bars is El Patio Sevillano. You’ll need to arrive early for front row seats as it’s first come first serve. But regardless of where you sit, you’ll see plenty and it is a very complete show with lots of artists doing both flamenco and clásico español with castagnettes. El Patio, along with most other tablaos in Seville are better if you want a whole evening out rather than just a flamenco show.

11 – Auditorio Alvarez Quintero

Calle Alvarez Quintero 48

Duende is a word referring to the spirit of the dance, how much the performance touches those watching. Auditorio Alvarez Quintero may just be your standard Tabloa (bar) with tapas on offer, but the dancers are professional and soul touching. As with all the best places to watch flamenco in Seville, you will find an abundance of duende here!

10 – El Palacio Andaluz

Calle de Maria Auxiliadora 18

Flamenco is at its best in a no thrills show, when the dancing does the talking without any need for gimmicks. All that is needed to provide and excellent show is for passion and skill to come together. There are some nice group dances as well, and a broad selection of upcoming dancers, supported by long revered singers and guitarists. This combined with the good service and decent food make this one of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville. It should be noted, however, that the large size of this venue can make the dances not very personable, this is the main reason why it’s not higher up on the list.

9 – El Arenal

Calle Rodo 7

Good food, attentive service, passionate dancing. A perfect combination, right!? Next to the bull ring, this centrally located bar will give you all of that without having to walk too far! The show hear ranges from sultry to dramatic to sensual to heartbreaking. This spellbinding show deserves its place in our countdown of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville. The only downside here, is that the performers can sometimes feel a little far away.

8 – Museo Del Baile Flamenco

Calle Manuel Rojas Marcos 3

Unlike many of the others on our list, this is not a bar, but an unconventional museum. Not only does this make it a unique tablao setting for shows, but also the perfect place to come to learn more about the art form. Museo del Baile Flamenco is one of most famous flamenco places in Seville, and as such draws quite large crowds. But the emotionally moving and visually stunning show feels no less intimate. This is without doubt one of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville.

7 – Casa de la Guitarra

Calle Meson del Moro 12

This is another show held away from the traditional bar, this time in a small theatre. What this loses in authenticity it makes up for in intimacy as the dancers have everyone’s full attention. There is no background noise because everyone has come purely to see the flamenco. This concentration and intimacy make Casa de la Guitarra one of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville.

6 – La Carboneria

Calle Cespedes 21

This is the real deal. A hot, crowded bar with three shows a night. The entrance is free, you simply buy a drink and take a seat at the long tables. The roar of conversation is quashed by venerate silence as the dancing starts and all eyes turn to that corner of the room. Very few places can offer this level of authenticity. Although it is far from the most comfortable settings to watch flamenco, this place is nevertheless one of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville because of its passionate atmosphere and dedication to authenticity.

5 – Los Gallos

Plaza Santa Cruz

There can be few better settings than this! Hidden in a building off of Plaza Santa Cruz, serenity will overcome you as you walk across one of the most tranquil plazas in the city before enteing the building for the intimate show. The friendly staff are happy to answer any questions you have and the small venue makes duende almost tangible. This is most definitely one of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville.

4 – Casa de la Memoria

Calle Cuna 6

This is a medium sized venue, but still one of the larger ones on our list. The larger the venue the harder it is to create an intimate atmosphere, but Casa de la Memoria manage to put on soul touching performances every night. Their passion will overcome you during what is considered, among the flamenco artists themselves, the best nightly show in the city. It therefore deserves its lofty seat as on of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville.

3 – Mantoncillo (Usually Thurs-Sun)

Calle Betis 29

Triana is the old gypsy neighbourhood of Seville, meaning that if flamenco really was born in Seville it was more than likely born across the river in Triana. For this reason, we believe Triana to be the best place to go to experience the traditional improvised flamenco. Sometimes there’s no full on show, just flamenco aficionados, spending their night out sharing flamenco. Not necessarily any dancing. Just singer and guitarist, and lots of people sharing two or three simple flamenco moves while having a drink. Nothing is more authentic than this quaint little bar. Although they don’t have shows everyday, when they do it’s fantastic. A small bar centered around the performers. This is without doubt one of the best places to experience party-style flamenco in Seville.

2 – Casa de Flamenco

Calle Ximénez de Enciso 28

Flamenco at its best is a truly captivating art form, the rhythm of the feet pounding like pneumatic drills is almost hypnotic as the graceful upper body entrances you. This is what you’ll experience in Casa de Flamenco as you listen to the singer’s voice cracking with sadness at the thought of their downtrodden life. The melody flies in perfect harmony with guitar so soulful it could make you cry. A performance at Casa de Flamenco has it all, quite possibly the best every day show in all of the city, certainly worthy of its place in our countdown of the best places to watch flamenco in Seville.

1 – T de Triana (Esencia)

Calle Betis 20

At our number one is a beautiful bar with views across the river. T de Triana plays host to Esencia dance troop, our favourite dancers in the city! The reason we put this at the top of our best places to watch flamenco in Seville is for one simple reason: it’s the only place we know in the whole city where the dancers will take you on a tapas tour!! Kati or Maria will meet you beforehand and explain all about Triana, tapas, and flamenco as they take you to some of their favourite bars, and really be host to their guests, sharing
flamenco with you as if you were in their own family. All of this before heading to T de Triana where they will dance for you in one of the most intimate settings in the whole city. They really take pride in being the smallest venue in Seville. Despite being small, they offer the same high class artistry as Casa de la Memoria or Casa del Flamenco. It really is a one of a kind experience. If it sounds like something you’d enjoy, then head to our website and we’ll delight in helping you organise it.

Seville is the heartland of flamenco and as such is the best place to see it in all of Spain! We hope that this countdown has given you some ideas of where to check it out and what kinds of shows are available. If you’re in search of something a bit more hands on, then we’ve got you covered! Why not come and join our Flamenco Dance Lesson and learn how to move like that for yourself? Or, if, like yours truly, you feel you lack the coordination to make a success of trying to dance, join our Flamenco Box Lesson to learn the art of flamenco percussion, the cornerstone from which the music and dancing are built on.

    We are spending 5 nights in Seville on 5-10 Feb and would like to take in 2 intimate Flamenco shows with some authentic food to have with it . We have booked nothing yet for the week so we are available on any of the days .

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi James,

      Thanks for getting in touch with us. I am Mahsa. Sure! There are only a few options for an intimate show with food and drinks in the traditional way and not the touristy mass tour that is widely sold. I’d suggest you book our flamenco and taps evening for the 8th or 9th as the program is good. You can book it here: https://notjustatourist.com/tours/seville-tapas-flamenco-night/. It is an intimate show and the cherry on the top is that you will be hosted by a flamenco artist and see behind the scenes.

      Let me know if you have any questions.

      See you soon!

  2. Warren W. Spencer says:

    Where’s best for old school authentic flamenco with some explanation about origins and traditions. With close proximity to performers, rather than far distant staging. Drinks and food optional. For two—one long-time flamenco lover and one newbie— during September 2024 on much anticipated first-time (and probably once in lifetimes trip to Spain) Seville journey on way to or from Barcelona. Thank you so much. Warren

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Spencer,

      There are many venues and they change their program a lot each week. So, you really have to check their weekly program.  For now, I like a few flamenco venues in Triana area but also it depends on the day. There is a show that two flamenco dancers organize and they do the show in different venues in Triana. They are great, intimate, explain, and take care of people. You can just attend the show or even better book a full flamenco experience with them including a walk in Triana, a visit to 2-3 tapas bars, tapas and drinks that are traditional and the show of course. Let me know if you know your potential dates and which option you prefer and I will ask them.

      Thank you!

  3. Olga Oros says:

    Dear Mahsa, My husn=band and I will be traveling to Seville on Dec 31 and would love to celebrate with a flamenco show. My 75 yr old mother and 12 year old nephew will be with us too. I was thinking of a smaller , more intimate venue that possible also serves food, but if not, we can go and have dinner before or after the show. What do you think?

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Olga,

      There is a small venue in Triana that offers a show on 31st Dec at 7.30pm. It costs 39 euros pp and includes a drink. You can also order some tapas there if you wish. They don’t have a big selection but decent options. On the 31st Dec many restaurants are open only with a booking and many other tapas bars don’t accept bookings. Just for you to have it in mind for your NYE’s dinner plans.

      Let me know if you wish me to book it for you.

      Thank you!

  4. Celine says:

    Hi Mahsa,
    We are travelling to Seville from Thursday to Tuesday this week, we will be with our 15-month daughter. Do you think we can go enjoy flamenco? if so do you have any recommendation on places that are baby-friendly? Gracias!

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Celine,

      Most venues don’t allow babies or very young kids but there might be one very nice venue that might allow that. They don’t have every day a show though. I can ask them. The price is per adults 35 euros and bookings need to be made done previously as they are small and can get booked out. Let me know if all the dates are fine for you and I will check and make the booking for you.

      Thanks a lot!

      • Camilla says:

        Hello!
        We have a baby on 8 months and a daughter on 4 years. We would like to go to an early flamenco show. We are in Seville right now and leave tuesday the 17th of october. Can you recommend a place for us?
        Best regards
        Camilla

        • Mahsa says:

          Hi Camilla,
          there are not many places in Seville that allow kids and babies but I checked and there is a small venue in Triana that has a show and it is a great place as both tourists and locals go there. It costs 35 euros per adult and 12 euros for the 4-year-old one. You need to prebook. I can book it and send you a payment link if you wish.
          Let me know if you’d like the idea.
          Thank you!

          • Penny Madsen says:

            Hi, I am interested in this show as I would like to see some flamenco with my husband and five year old next week. Could you please let me know where this is? We are staying in Triana and will happily do an evening show

          • Mahsa says:

            Hi Penelope, 

            Thanks for getting in touch. Some venues don’t allow small kids. Could you please let me know your exact dates and I will check and book for you? The more availability you have the better as the program changes every day. This way we can choose the best day and venue
            .
            Thank you!

  5. Manuela says:

    Hi, what show do you recommend for 24th of August, not very pricey but good quality? We have 2 girls of 6 years old that love dancing. Thank you

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Manuela,

      Thanks a lot for getting in touch. There are many venues in Seville and it depends on what you prefer. I usually suggest small and intimate venues that are not very touristy. Also, if your girls like dancing I’d suggest joining our flamenco dance workshop prior to the show. That could be one of BEST activities they could do and you could join it too as it makes for a nice and interactive family activity. There are 2 nice flamenco shows in Triana on 24th starting around 7 and 8.30pm and I can book it for you. It costs 30 euros pp and includes a drink and the flamenco lesson can be also booked at https://notjustatourist.com/tours/seville-flamenco-dance-lesson/.

      Let me know if you need anything else. Seville has a lot of things to keep kids busy and happy.

      Have a great time!

      • Petrie Schuwer says:

        Dear Mahsa,

        We will visit Sevilla mid October and wouLd like to see a Trulli authentic flamenco show at a small venue. What can you recommend ?

        • Mahsa says:

          Hi Petri,

          There are many flamenco venues in Seville and it is hard to choose. Could you tell me your exact dates and what kind of show you like and I can guide you better? They are big venues, some even with dinner during the show, very small and more local ones, more classic ones and in different areas. Also, a very good idea would be to do a flamenco and tapas evening. You will be hosted by a high quality flamenco dancer and might even join her show in that evening. You will learn much more and also meet the artists, the locations they tend to go for a drink and you can mingle with the locals and artists and enjoy authentnic and non touristy food and ambiance.

          Let me know.

          Muchas gracias!

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Singh,

      Thanks for reaching out. There are many flamenco venues in Seville and they are mostly very nice. However, I usually recommend the smaller venues to have a more authentic experience. For instance, there are 2 venues in Triana which is across the river and their shows starts around 8, 9.30pm. The price can also differ a bit. Let me know how many people you are and I will check for you.

      Thanks!
      Mahsa

      • peter says:

        Hi Mahsa,

        We are going to Seville today and would like to go to an authentic flamenco show. We like your comments. Is it possible to get tickets from you for any of the good venues in Triana today?

        • Mahsa says:

          Hi Peter,

          In summer there are fewer shows available as most people go to the beach or on vacation but today in Triana there is a nice show at 7pm. The price is 30 euros pp. I can book it for you. Let me know how many people you are.

          Thanks!

  6. Sudeep Goyal says:

    We are 5 families (14 in total) travelling to Seville from Aug 27 till Aug 31. Our kids are ranging from age 15 to 23. We are staying at Melia South and would like to attend one of Flamenco show on Aug 27. Please can you recommend one for us near to our hotel with smaller setting.

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Sudeep,

      There are many flamenco venues in Seville with different focus and setting. I am not sure exactly where your hotel is but Seville has a relatively small and walkable old town so you can get anywhere quite easily or you can take a few cabs too. I like the venues in Triana on the other side of the river. There are a few of them and you can check to see what suites your preferences better. I can also book you in one if you wish making sure you meet the artists, owner, etc. Let me know.

      Thanks!
      Mahsa

  7. Danna says:

    Hi, would it be possible to book a show in any of the places listed in this article for 5 people on November? Or is it too soon? We are planning a trip to Spain and will be stopping in Sevilla for a day, we’d like to start planning the trip ahead of time.

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Danna,

      Sure! You can book your flamenco show now. Jsut let me know your dates please so I can check for you. The shows usually start around 7-9pm and cost generally around 25- 60 euros. I usually recommend the less touristy and smaller venues for a better experience. Let me know which type of flamenco you prefer your dates and I will book you for that type of show.

      Thanks a lot!
      Mahsa

  8. Janine says:

    Where can I see flamenco on Thursday 6th April or Friday 7th in the evening, the one I booked has just cancelled due to Holy Week

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Janine,

      Easter week is indeed difficult for flamenco activities as the city is very crowded and collapsed. I can book you for the 6th April in a nice venue in Triana. It costs 35 euros pp and the time slot is after 7pm. The show is usually 45-60 min.

      Let me know if you would like to go ahead and I will send you a payment link  (+4.5% cc fee). The availability is very limited so it is best to book asap.

      Hope this helps. 
      Thanks

  9. Umang says:

    Hello!
    Great blog and thanks for the sharing the Flamenco scenes of Seville!
    My wife and I (early 30s, no kids) would be in Seville from Dec25th to Dec 27th 2022. (We then head to Granada on 28th Dec). It would be super helpful if you could provide us with some Flamenco show options during these dates (and in the evening). All the options looks great, but we are confused between Casa de la Memoria, Los Gallos, La Carboneria and not sure if they all would be open during Xmas week!

    Also, we would be visiting Granada and don’t want to have the same style/experience of Flamenco at both the places!

    Gracias,
    Umang

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Umang,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Flamenco has many different styles and if you enjoy the music you can attend different places and they will never be the same. Carboneria is a fun place but not a typical classic show. Memoria has always good quality shows. Gallos is a classic place and one of the oldest “tablaos” in Spain. So whatever you choose will be fine. However, they are all in Santa Cruz which is a touristy area. For the good and for the bad. I usually go to the Triana area and this flamenco venue (Esencia)  is one of my favorites in terms of price, quality and local vibes.

      In Granada try to visit one of the flamenco caves in Sacramonte as they are different.  If you need help with the booking or wish to make it a full evening with a tapas walk going to some local bars and being accompanied by a flamenco artist, meet the artists and get more of the flamenco vibes you can also join our flamenco and tapas evening.

      Let me know if you need anything else.

      Muchas gracias!

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Vinit,

      I might be able to arrange the flamenco evening and tapas tour for tomorrow evening as it is quite late for tonight. Does tha work for you?

      Thanks!

  10. Lana says:

    Hi, We will be in Seville on August 13th till 17th. Can you recommend a show for family of 4 with 2 children (14 and 8 year old)

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Lana,

      Most flamenco shows are fine for kids too as children enjoy the dance and the spectacle but that is true that if they are smaller venues and less of a classic setting it can be more fun for them. Let me check the flamenco program for your dates and get back to you shortly as August is also the vacation month and not all places are open.

      Gracias!
      Mahsa

      • Maneet says:

        Hi there,

        I am also travelling to Sevilla and will unfortunately only be spending one day there – can you please advise which walking tour includes tapas and a flamenco show?

        Thank you! M

  11. Mark Evaro says:

    A group of 3 will be in Sevilla in October and looking to experience theT de Tirana walking tour. Can you confirm what is included? Does it include the Flamenco show or do we have to buy tickets for that separately?

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Mark,

      We have a few tours that include Triana. The Triana Tapas Tour takes you to the Triana Market and 4 different tapas bars in the area, the Panoramic Walking Tour that is aimed to be Seville in a nutshell and give you an insight into the most important part of Seville’s Old Town and the Flamenco Show and Tapas Evening that takes places in Triana and takes you around Triana and end up in an intimate high quality flamenco show. You can book all these experiences on our website and the show is of course included in the price too.

      Let me know if you have any questions.

  12. Rutvik says:

    Hi Mahsa,

    My wife and I will be in Sevilla on August 22 & 23, can you please suggest some good Flamenco shows with good tapas/food? We do not mind small or large gathering. This will be our first time experience.

    Thank you,
    Rutvik

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Rutvik,

      I am sure you would love your tapas and flamenco experience in Seville. In my opinion, this is one of the best experiences travelers should try in Seville as it is about history, great food, nice drinks, meeting locals and of course an amazing flamenco show. Let me send you more information shortly.

      Thank you!

        • Mahsa says:

          Hi Anna,

          Sure! There are many great shows in the town each day. I recommend this venue a lot as they have an exciting changing band and explain very well too. Once you book there you will receive a manual confirmation with the exact time of the show.

          Have a great time in Seville!

  13. Kamal says:

    Hello,

    I’m actually a guitar player and love flamenco. I will be in Sevilla on the 3rd July 2022. Wondering if you know is any tapas restaurant (not touristy) where guitarists play. I am less interested on the dance (although I also dance salsa), but more on the guitar playing. Cheers ! Kam

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Kamal,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Usually, in flamenco venues they play guitar but there is also dancing. Otherwise, you might find some bars across the city where somebody might be playing guitar spontaneously but I don’t know of any restaurant with live music. Triana and C/Betis are a good place to look after 10-11pm.

      Hope you enjoy Seville!

  14. Tracey says:

    Hello, we are a family of 7 traveling to Seville the 28-31 May. We are looking to make a booking with flamingo and tapas and not in a touristy place. Thank you!

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Tracey,

      Thanks for getting in touch. We don’t arrange anything that is touristy and low quality. You will be with professional dancers and meet local people. The 29th of May could be a great day for a flamenco evening and tapas as also the locals go out and you see more ambiance. I will send you more informatin with the link to book.

      See you in Seville!

    Hello Magda,

    I am travelling to Seville 13-16th april during semana santa with my husband and we would like to see some flamenco in a small non-touristy venue – possibly a bar so we can have drink. We aren’t sure where would be best during the Holy Week? Do you have any recommendations?

    Best wishes,

    Mary

  17. Hassan says:

    Hola Mahsa,

    So glad that I found your page. My partner and I will be in Seville for Holy Week. We would like to see some good flamenco on the night of Saturday 16 or Monday 18 April. Can you please recommend some places. It would be great if they take reservations although that is probably not true of the smaller, more authentic ones. Thanks for you help.

    Hello Mahsa,

    We are four friends travelling to Spain and will be in Seville on 29, 30 and 31 March. We’d like to see Flamenco in a small venue, preferably in Tirana. Do you have any specific recommendations for those dates?

    Many thanks

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Fanny,

      Sure! There are some great artists programmed for some of your dates in Triana. I have sent you an email with more details. Please check your spam folder too.

      Thank you!

      • Chris says:

        Hi Magda
        Can you share the list with me? We are in Tirana now for the next week and would love to experience this. Much as Gracias

        • Mahsa says:

          Hi Chris,

          Thanks for getting in touch. Which list do you refer to?  There is no list of flamenco programs. Each venue works with different artists each day. However, I usually work with and recommend a few smaller ones or very high category ones. Let me know what you need.

          Thanks!

  20. Gaby says:

    Saludos!
    I’ll be in Sevilla from April 15-April 18 (early morning). Do you have any special suggestions for an intimate dinner and show for the 15 or 16 (ideally the 16)? Thank you in advance!!

  21. Tyler says:

    Hi Mahsa,

    My wife and I are visiting Seville from March 20 (morning) until March 23 (morning). We would love to attend a flamenco show in a smaller (non-touristy) venue. Do you have any recommendations for us?

    Thanks for your help!

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Tyler,

      I like one venue with which I work a lot in Triana and another one which is quite new in Santa Cruz. I have just asked them about their programs for your dates and will let you know over email. Please keep an eye on your spam folder too. 🙂

      Gracias!

  22. Hannah says:

    Hiya,

    I’m looking for an authentic flamenco show with tapas/dinner for me and my partner to celebrate his birthday on Thurs 3rd March in Seville, do you have any recommendations at all?

    Many thanks,
    Hannah

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Hannah,

      This is a GREAT idea to celebrate his birthday this way and be in the right mood for such an occasion. I think the best option would be to join a Flamenco and Tapas Evening. It includes an intimate show but also it makes for a fun evening trying different tapas and enjoying the very special ambiance that the neighborhood has got and mingling with the cheerful locals. There are some venues with set dinner which I don’t recommend at all as they are big and for tourists. In some other venues, you can order food and it is perfectly fine too. However, the best option would be to experience the whole thing, go with the artist on a tapas tour, visit her favorite places, meet her friends and then watch the show. She will guide you through different foods and drinks and explain a bit about flamenco culture too.

      Gracias!

    Hello,

    Me and my wife are visiting Seville next week. And we were wondering if you could give us some recommendation on Flamenco show? We are interested in just a show and drinks.

    Thanks,
    Vinay

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Vinay,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Could you tell me your dates please as there are different venues and with different programs and artists each day? Usually, I recommend small venues where you actually get the chance to sit close to the artists and even talk to them and there you have the possibility to order tapas and drinks too if you wish or just enjoy the show. They show costs around 25 euros.

      Let me know. Thanks!

    Hi, I will be in Seville 5-7/03 with 3 friends. We would like to see a typical flamenco show. Can you recommend us something for that weekend. Thank you. Dana

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Dana,

      Sure! You can choose between more classic shows and more casual ones. I would not recommend any touristy shows with big buses parked outside and which serve food. They are ok but very soulless. Let me pass you some more information by email.

      Is the T de Triana the same thing as the Triana Flamenco theatre? I want to make sure I’m getting tickets at the right place.
      Thanks – Stacey

      • Mahsa says:

        Hi Stacey,

        No. They are 2 different venues. T de Triana does not exist anymore and has been taken by another venue. Let me know what exactly you are looking for and I might be able to help you.

        Gracias!

          I’m in Seville looking for a flamenco show that is typically Spanish in a bar maybe with tapas. We are here until Tuesday. What would you recommend?

          • Mahsa says:

            Hola Debbie,

            For tomorrow, I can book for you one small flamenco venue either in Triana or in Santa Cruz and for Monday in Triana. They start around 8pm and you can order some authentic tapas there too.

            Gracias!

    Hi,
    I am here in Seville today with my husband. Where can I watch an authentic flamenco shows in a small setup rather than a huge one. Can you please me with this.

      • Mike says:

        Hi Mahsa,

        We’ll be in Sevilla on Sunday, 20 February, looking for an intimate flamenco experience. Could you recommend something in particular?

        Thanks!

        • Mahsa says:

          Hola Mike,

          Thanks for getting in touch. I just sent you a more extensive email about flamenco in Seville. Hope it helps.

          Gracias!

    Hi, just wondering what evenings of the week Flamenco is available please. We are planning a few days at the end of April 2023. Thanks.

  27. Alex says:

    Hi! I will be traveling to Sevilla from 12/26-12/29. It will be 3 adults and a 4 year old. We would love to see a show that is more intimate but also ok for. 4 year old. What would you recommend?

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Alex,

      There are many different flamenco venues and some quite high quality ones in Seville. I usually recommend an activity that includes a tapas tour in Triana area with a flamenco dancer and than joining her own tour in a very authentic venue. Of course, you can also only join the show and there is no problem with the little one. Let me check their availability and send you more info shortly.

      Gracias!

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Angelique,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us. The flamenco shows in Seville are very different and can also vary from day to day. What we usually do that we check the programs of each venue and see which artists are playing and then book the right show. Generally, I prefer smaller and intimate shows rather than a big and more elaborated and touristy spectacle. Teatro de Triana, Flamenco Essencia and a few other venus in Triana are great and small scale. But again it is best to check before with them or with us to have a non-touristy and authentic experience. 
      We also have a very nice tapas tour combined with a flamenco show which is hosted by flamenco artists and gives you a great insight into their life, work, art, and music. They can also set up a short but fun flamenco dance or drum lesson before the show. 
      Let me know if you need anything else.
      Gracias!

      • Joleen says:

        Hello Mahsa,

        My family will be visiting December 21st and would love a intimate dinner with great food, show and possibly get to dance with the dancers? Please can you suggest some options? Thank you, Joleen

        • Mahsa says:

          Good morning Joleen,

          Sure! I can arrange an authentic experience for you. There are 2 options: one option is going to VERY big and touristy venues with set dinners which I don’t recommend as there are designed for mass tourism. The second option is a small venue where you can order food a la carte and meet the artists. Dancing is not possible since it is a show but if you wish you meet the dancers or take dance lessons with them as a fun family activity before the show it is perfectly possible. Let me know if you need any more information.

          Gracias!

      • Mahsa says:

        Hi Narelle,

        There is a flamenco show every day in Seville. However, the program and quality can change depending on the day and also on the venue. If you let me know your exact dates I can check it and help you to choose the best nontouristy program.

        Thanks!

    Hi,
    I will go to Sevilla with my husband and 10 years old son on July. I always have loved flamenco. I would like a recommendation about a place to go with my family, and maybe dance with the dancers group, eat and have fun. Thank you!!

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Ivonne,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I just sent you an email with all the information with more classic places as well as options for different activities related to flamenco. Let me know if you need more information.

      Gracias!

    I am not sure if this feed is still open.
    I will be in Seville late September, early October 2020. I believe it is the Flamenco Festival there then.
    How do I find out the best shows to go to and can I book now for them?
    I particularly loved the Museo show I saw last year and was knocked out by the male dancers but would like to try somewhere different this trip.
    Thanks

    Hi we are coming to Seville early Oct as a family celebration trip . There are 8 of us all adults. We would like to see a flamenco show are enjoy taps and drinks but do not want a tour please can you recommend some places.

    • Mahsa says:

      Hi Satinder,

      That is great that you have chosen Seville as your family reunion trip. Oct is usually quite mild and nice to be in Seville. Sometimes the city smells of orange blossoms and Jasmin too. 🙂

      There are many nice flamenco venues in the town and tapas bars. However, I would strongly recommend to book a tour. The reason? It is like going to a National park famous for its bird species. If you go by yourself yo might not see any birds and not notice any difference or learn anything. However if you are with an expert they will show you all the hidden secrets and it brings your day to life. The same thing is with a tapas or flamenco show tour. If you go to a nice tapas bar and order you might get some food but you will miss the best dishes of each bar, the story behind those recipes, all the cultural components. I believe cuisine is a very important part of our culture and it requires some guidance for travellers to be able to enjoy it more. We know exactly what to order in each place, what time to go, what to order and how to combine it with the right drink or food. This cannot be explained but you have to try it. :).

      Let me know if this sounds good to you and I would send you happily a quote to make this evening a memorable night. If not, I would be happy to recommend some tapas bars and venues and invite you to check our blogs that reveal a lot of nice places.

      I look forward to hearing from you.
