If there is a traditional and cultural show that comes to mind when we talk about Spain, this is flamenco. Especially popular in the 20th century, but still very present in practically all the provinces of the Spanish territory, this genre, which initially developed in Andalusia, found in Madrid a place where it offered shows day after day that attracted thousands of spectators.
We have to go back to the 1950s to talk about the birth of tablaos, with the aim of opening Spain up to the rest of the world and attracting visitors, as well as promoting the country's talent. In this sense, flamenco in Madrid took on special importance as it was found in the capital, a place where artists could meet, continue learning and even live nearby in neighbourhoods around the aforementioned tablaos.
Today, more than half a century later, we can still find several establishments that allow us to enjoy authentic flamenco in Madrid, undoubtedly highlighting the Tablao la Carmela.
Tablao la Carmela, the best place to enjoy flamenco
This newly opened Tablao Flamenco is a mystical place full of history in which to enjoy the most genuine experience. A building with vaulted ceilings, where in every inch we can feel the passion for Flamenco art that is even more reflected by the sounds of the flamenco guitar and the voice of the artists, as well as the elegant movements of the dancers.
For an even more immersive experience, La Carmela Restaurant, at Hotel Victoria 4, is inspired by Madrid's taverns, with its characteristic tapas that will leave you wanting to repeat. In addition, and to highlight the gastronomy of the rest of the country, you can taste typical dishes such as paella, Galician broth or gazpacho, without forgetting the iconic tripe or the traditional Madrid stew that you cannot leave without trying.
If you prefer, at the Tablao you can opt for the Castiza Gastronomy menu, which includes some of the most typical dishes of national cuisine accompanied by a Rioja or Ribera del Duero wine.
