Okay, the show is only €10 apiece and did not realize it was only 30 minutes long total. On the plus side, it was hot and stuffy inside, so glad was only in the theatre for 30 minutes, on the down side, 20 minutes of the show was singing before any dancing started. Thus, got only 10 minutes of show... More

This event was a presentation of traditional flamenco condensed in less than one hour. I'm new to this form of art, however, found it very attractive. The dancers (only women) were very talented and so was the band. The guitarist also played a longish solo which was very emotional and technically demanding. The show was targeted at tourists but was... More

We saw a show here as part of a package with a tapas evening, but absolutely loved the show (which lasted around half an hour). Intimate venue means you're very close to the stage so it feels very intense. The dancers and particularly the guitarist were incredible.

Attended this show with our two kids 11 and 14. Everyone enjoyed it. You can buy dicount tickets for 8 Euros on their web site ahead of time and then get in the ticket-holder line at the start of the show for the best seats in the house. The web site unfortunately rejected our American Visa card. But we went... More

We booked through Internet, but at the entrance we told that all seats were already taken. We could see the next show and come early. We decided to stay and found an empty bar stool and my friend had to squeeze herself in to a corner in the back. Very disappointing. Everybody should have a seat and be able to... More

Raw, up close and personal. We've all been to the big productions and not been able to see a thing. Well this is the polar opposite but just as wonderful. Easy to find location and the most passionate half hour you'll experience while in Barcelona.

really nice and good price, if you compare with others. About 40 minutes show and music. Only you need do buy tickets before, or you must wait in line and if a lot of people there, you cannot go inside

From 8.30pm there is a flamenco show of about 30-40 minutes at the cost of €10 (8 if you book on line), it's a small club so you are close to the stage. For the money and show it is excellent. Located in the Placa Real you can sit in the square and have a drink afterwards or you can... More

The reason I go to this place is because of the music. I love rock, punk and the 80s classics played during the weekdays. During the weekend the music genre is adapted to a more pop kind of crowd, completely losing everything this place meant to me and giving me no reason to be there. Entrance is 10€ in weekends...
