Great place for watching a flamenco show just paying for a drink or whatever you prefer. Real, authentic and easy atmosphere. Just one dancer, one guitar and one singer. Not only for tourists.

We reached the place following the advice of a waiter and after turning several small, winding streets we found this charming place where you can enjoy the roots of flamenco: dancing, singing and guitar playing. It can be really crowded as the show is free (you are just asked to order something to drink). The atmosphere is fascinating and we visited the place several times, always finding something new.

Hidden down some back streets, La Carboneria offers a down to earth Flamenco show twice nightly 10.30pm and 11.30 pm), oh and its free! You need to arrive just before 10pm to get a good seat. Drinks at the bar are reasonably priced and they serve limited but tasty food. We visited twice in 4 days. Great atmosphere and a great saving over the Flamenco for tourists shows throughout the city.

La Carboneria is a real treasure that deserves to be kept a secret. It is a free, yes free, place to catch a Flamenco show and have a late night bite. The atmosphere is very casual and the only cost is the drinks (2euro wine) and whatever you want to snack on. There is no minimum. It's a lively large crowd with all ages and nationalities, but is decidedly not touristy. Stay after the show and hang out at the front bar for a whole other experience. Musicians play and the local singers serenade everyone as all the dancers from around town begin to drop in after their shows and keep the beat with stomps and claps. Shows start at around 10:30pm. The place is mostly empty before 10pm. It's a great way to meet the locals and see people performing purely for the love of it.

We got here at around 10pm at the recommendation of the owner of our apartment. We got seats and drinks (slightly more expensive than other bars, but still very reasonable) and waited for the flamenco to start. The atmosphere was electric and the place was packed to the rafters. The guitarist and dancer were wonderful. It felt raw and authentic - a must do when in Seville!
