Tablao El Arenal

The venue offers flamenco performances twice a night, featuring up to ten artists during one and a half hour show. Show price includes tapas, dinner or drinks on choice.
Los Gallos

2) Los Gallos (must see)

Los Gallos is a tablao (flamenco venue) located on Santa Cruz square and neighborhood. It preserves some of the most authentic Flamenco elements, such as traditional interiors and an inspiring atmosphere. It is the place recognized by many as one of the venues of traditional Flamenco dance and guitar shows. Being a place created exclusively for Flamenco, it serves only drinks.

Try to get as close to the stage as possible, as that will enhance your experience.
The show comes with a drink, and the waiter will come by and bring you more if you want to purchase.

Shows Hours:
8:30-10pm / 10:30pm-12am
La Carbonería

3) La Carbonería

La Carbonería is one of the most popular Flamenco venues of Seville. It is very well-attended by locals and tourists alike, who love it because of its natural and spontaneous atmosphere. Visitors can choose to sit in the more intimate tapas room or enjoy the back room where there is a bar and a tiny stage. Usually Flamenco dances are performed late at night and anyone is welcome to participate. It is adored for its bohemian, yet familiar, atmosphere.
Museo del Baile Flamenco

4) Museo del Baile Flamenco (must see)

Museo del Baile Flamenco is the best place to get an insight into the evolution and the spreading of Flamenco. It holds various exhibitions on Flamenco fashion, styles of dancing and photos of historic artists. It is also host to one of the best Flamenco shows in Seville. Small setting, great settings, really professional dancers and singers. Each show lasts for almost an hour. Photography or video are not allowed during the show.

If possible, get there early and try to get a seat near the front facing the show, as sitting at the side could slightly affect the view of the dancers' feet, which is such a big part of Flamenco dancing.
Perhaps consider booking tickets for the "VIP" show with a smaller group of dancers, which is more intimate and a little more expensive but you get a glass of bubbly with that one, too.

Opening Hours:
Daily: 10am–7pm

Show Hours: 5pm, 7pm, 8:45pm, 10:15pm
Casa de la Memoria / Centro Cultural Flamenco

5) Casa de la Memoria / Centro Cultural Flamenco (must see)

Casa de la Memoria is a cultural facility established to promote and preserve authentic Andalusian traditions. Located on the famous CalIe Cuna, it is the best place to go for an authentic Flamenco show presented by recognized artists. The shows are held in a sophisticated atmosphere.

The building itself is worth a visit, as part of the old stables of the Palace of the Countess of Lebrija, a wonderful architectural jewel of the 16th century, and you can also take the opportunity to shop for Andalusian souvenirs and crafts on the 2nd floor.

Why You Should Visit:
You MUST see a live, authentic Flamenco show while you're in Spain!
The venue is small and therefore you get to see the performers up close.
The performers are intense and mean 100% when they are performing.

Don't buy on the night – get advance tickets, as it's a very popular show.
Arrive early and stand in line to get seats closest to the stage.

Show Hours:
Daily: 7:30-8:30pm / 9-10pm
