We went for real flamenco and it was an unforgetable experience.
You get free drink (jerez cherry for us) and you ar a witness to fabulous Flamenco show.
To tell you the truth I was plesently surprised. I expected some touristy Disney Land, but what we got was a fantastic show, with fantastic dancers and guitar players.
It was trully a magical night.
The thing to do in Cordoba is to witness the spectacle of flamenco. Flamenco is a product of Andalusia and it is more than appropriate to enjoy it exactly here in Cordoba, in a way the heart of Andalusia.
There are many venues where flamenco is performed. These are usually bars where one can be culturally prompted by generous quantity of sangria. Believe me, it really helps get to the point.
Speaking of the point, it was demonstrated quite literally to me, or at least this was my impression. In my case there was a love fight between the male musician and the female dancer which seemed to continue after the spectacle itself. I should consider myself very lucky because the state in which these two love birds were helped a lot to provide a convincing interpretation of the flamenco itself.

When we arrived in Cordoba we checked into our hotel and headed out for a bite to eat. After dinner we headed out to the old town center to see what was going on. In the previous cities that we had been in this area was typically very lively filled with restaurants and people walking around till at least 1a or 2a. When we arrived we were surprised to see this area pretty empty. There were a few people walking around but we were pretty disappointed.
If there is nightlife in Cordoba it's not happening in the old town.
Nightlife? What nightlife??!!
Yes, Cordoba is a lovely place for viewing historical monuments and landmarks... but by dusk, this town becomes pretty quiet! (Read: DEAD).
I met a lovely Mexican girl here in Cordoba and we both decided to paint the town red after dinner (since my other friends were too tired and decided to turn in early for the night...). Anyway, we (the Mexican girl and I) happily went to see the Manager of our hotel. Even he looked suprised when we asked him about the most happening clubs/ pubs (anywhere!) that we could check out here in Cordoba.
Don't get me wrong... There are pubs here in Cordoba... but most of them are just not the happening ones, ya know...
I was actually disappointed with the lack of nightlife other than dining - we followed the Lonely Planet guide to find some good bars and were left wandering around - may have been the time of the year - Nov? Oh well, needed the sleep anyhow....
