For the most authentic Flamenco experience choose this intimate tour which takes you to Tapas bars away from the main tourist spots.
Mass media may have brought Flamenco to the world stage, but its true artistic form still lies behind the walls of the various Flamenco bars of Madrid. With the Authentic Flamenco Show and Tapas Dinner in Madrid tour, immerse yourself in traditional Flamenco music and dance in the neighbourhood of Lavapiés and enjoy traditional tapas (appetizers) and cañas (drinks) in the two of the most sought after Flamenco bars in the region.
One of the major highlights of the tour is a visit to the renowned Flamenco bar, Tablao Villa Rosa, where you will experience traditional Flamenco performed by the world famous artists.
Visit authentic flamenco bars, where many internationally famous Flamenco dancers started their careers. We will experience Flamenco as the locals do, while enjoying a selection of traditional tapas such as boquerones, chorizo and manchego cheese. This is the only tour of Madrid that successfully brings together two sides of traditional Flamenco - the Flamenco that is performed along with tapas and drinks in small and lively bars filled with locals as well as the Flamenco performed as a professional art form by world-class artists. Learn about the origins of the art form as your English speaking guide will share interesting trivia and anecdotes.
To start your Authentic Flamenco Bar Small Group Tour and Tapas, Madrid tour, meet your English-speaking guide near the Reina Sofia Museum. Enjoy a walk through the beautiful Spanish neighbourhood of Lavapiés, where you will visit authentic Flamenco bars, which served as a launchpad for many famous dancers. Savour a selection of mouth-watering traditional tapas (appetizers) such as boquerones, chorizo and manchego cheese, and drinks and experience the fire and grace of a flamenco performance.
While you enjoy the performance and the food, your guide will tell you tales about the origin of Flamenco music and dance and give you interesting trivia about the art form.
Next, your guide will escort you to the famous Tablao Villa Rosa, the sanctuary of Madridian Flamenco. Opened in 1911, Tablao Villa Rosa has produced some of the best Flamenco artists since then and boasts of A-list visitors like King Alfonso XIII and author Ernest Hemingway. It was a meeting point for Flamenco enthusiasts who jammed, discussed and whirled to the beats of this electric art form. The artistic tiles adorning the interiors of the bar are crafted in Andulasian Arabic style and depict flamenco and bull fighting themes.
It is here that you will see the best of Flamenco performances, be it the music, castanets and frenetic swirling and stamping, by world class professionals. Artistic director Jonatan Miró handpicks the best of the professionals and fuses individual talents to present a wonderful confluence of passion and energy. You will be swayed away, feeling the pain of a Soléa, the happiness of an Alegría, the social withdrawal of a Martinete and the beautiful silent spaces between the notes of a guitar, tangos, through the powerful performances.
