We saw the 10:30pm show the second week of March while vacationing in Barcelona. I am well aware that Flamenco did not originate in Barcelona. It is a very small and simple venue with cheap folding chairs. One guy was singing on stage, I thought he was drunk, he was horrible!! The show was so bad that it was actually... More

It was our first flamenco show, so I can't compair to others. However, it was very intense but short. It's a 30 minutes show, but 15-20 of actual dancing. Try to seat as close to the stage as you can...

We have never seen live Flamenco and just had to see it while in Spain. I can't vouch for the authenticity ..... everybody says Barcelona is not the birthplace of flamenco, but it seemed pretty good to us!! We bought our tickets for the 10 pm show early, had dinner but still had to line up to get in (apparently... More

I liked the show, however it was too short for that price (10€). All the show lasted for half an hour and dancing around 20 minutes or less - at one part, they were just singing. However, the woman dancing was really good and passionate about it. At the end I liked the show, but it could be longer and... More

Autentikus flamenco műsort láttunk, kiemelnénk a női táncos megrázó erejű előadását. A hely laza, barátságos, nagyszerű helyen van, és a sangria is finom. We saw authentic flamenco show, wonderful performance of the female dancer. The place is relaxed, friendly, at great location, and the sangria is delicious.

Bought tickets online from FlamencoTickets.com. When we got there, there was a long line. I asked the doorman if we have to fall in line since we already have the tickets and the show was about to start in 10 minutes. He said definitely yes. Apparently he was not listening and we almost missed the show though ended up in... More

The flamenco show takes place in a small, simple bar in the Barri Gotic just off the La Rambla. The show only lasts about 30 minutes and is repeated through the evening. It only costs €10 on the door but you can buy online (www.codetickets.com) for €8 or you can get a €3 discount coupon on the bus maps available... More

Although tourists should not look for flamenco concerts in Catalunya, if you feel like having a taste of it, this is the place. Very good value for the money, entertaining and classy. Quality musicians and dancers that show their are having a good time too, not only working. There are three or four presentations every evening, so you can go... More
