Las Tablas is a breed apart from the other flamenco shows. The inside is different too. The smaller, modern space is used for not only flamenco shows but also for art exhibits, blues and jazz concerts, and theater. One drink is included in your entry limited food items are available. All seats are close to the stage but no flash can be used when taking photos. The two female owners not only assist as wait-staff but are also the flamenco dancers.

One must go around the side from the street and up a flight of stairs, the door faces the Plaza de España.

Flamenco is a truly Spanish art. To feel the passion and energy it transmits is an extraordinary experience. Visit a tablao (flamenco club) and experience this “universal” art, whose roots lie in the deepest of Spanish feeling.

Tablaos are clubs dedicated to Flamenco dance and song. They are the best places to see a unique flamenco performance that will captivate the audience. In flamenco, heartfelt song, accompanying guitar, rhythmic tap-dance and clapping, all come together with the dance of great artists, who often appear anonymously. You will notice how you are unconsciously infected by the emotion and feeling that this musical genre transmits.
