Flamenco in the blood

By | 14 November, 2014 | 0 comments

FlamencoThere is still a long time until the great flamenco event arrives in Madrid, the Suma Flamenco Festival, although this does not mean that you cannot enjoy this performing art in the city before, because the truth is it never stopped. Traditional tablaos like El Corral de la Morería maintain an excellent programme all year long, with daily sessions that include dinner and show at different times. You can also choose just going to the show alone, and you will get a free drink with your ticket. The show costs approximately 40 euros and the dinner has menus starting at 37 euros plus VAT.

These are shows designed for tourists. They are well organised and somewhat expensive but performing there are professional singers, dancers and guitarists. Such a place would be Cardamomo, one of the city’s classics located at Calle Echegaray. Perhaps because it was mentioned in such a prestigious newspaper like The New York Times or because of a growing demand for it, prices have gone up despite the economic recession. Entrance plus dinner costs 72 euros or just 39 if you want to see the show only.

One of them is 1862 Dry Bar, which opened in 2012 on the picturesque street of Calle del Pez, in Malasaña. It was created to fight against the trend of offering cocktails that make it hard to decipher which spirit it contains due to so much decoration. It is a return to the grassroots and it includes original proposals such as a different cocktail for each hour of the day.

casino gran madrid colonEverybody knows that the Eurovegas project, that large gambling theme park that was going to be built on the outskirts of Alcorcón, broke down. Perhaps to replace that void, or forecasting a fever for gambling in Madrid, the emblematic Casino of Torrelodones has opened a new casino in the heart of the city, at number 34 of Paseo de Recoletos, in front of Plaza de Colón.

Part of the Gran Casino Madrid brand, it is the first one that, as such, has opened its doors in Madrid for 90 years, under the architectonic direction of Rafael de la Hoz, responsible for the Gran Vía 48 building among others, the first building built on that avenue in the 21st century.
