    Centro Cultural Cajasol - Sala Joaquin Turina: Concerts and flamenco

    by fairy_dust Written Aug 7, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a theatre where I went to see a flamenco show by La Lupi - a major superstar in the flamenco world. The theatre is not huge, but nice and more high-end than many flamenco venues in town. For shows and concerts there, it's possible to buy tickets online (I bought mine through ticketmaster and picked it up at the Fnac store downtown).

    The actual building/venue is Centro Cultural Cajasol, but the theatre/room itself is Sala Joaquin Turina.

    The Lupi show was part of Jueves Flamencos (Flamenco Thursdays) - flamenco shows every Thursday.

    Dress Code: Dressy, but not super-formal. I would say - no jeans or sneakers, but no need to go all-out either.

    EME - Catedral Hotel: Illuminated Cathedral views

    by PrincessMonja Written Jul 5, 2011

    The hotel EME is opposite the cathedral and has the most wonderful views of it. In the summer the have 'misters' spraying a cooling of water over the seating areas (as do many places in Sevilla). I like to go and sit on the comfy sofa outside the EME, and enjoy a glass os fino. Now the service is generally appalling, so you can have a lovely relaxing sit for ages without having to but too many expensive drinks!!

    There is also a terrace on the top floor, with a fantastic view of the cathedral - it's also a great place to people watch!

    Dress Code: People tend to dress quite smartly - so probably best not to turn up in flip flops and shorts!

    El Patio Sevillano: Bravo Flamenco!

    by aukahkay Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If there is one place to watch a flamenco show in Spain, then it has to be in Sevilla. The El Patio Sevillano is a restaurant cum flamenco theater located right on the bank of the Guadalquivir River and beside the Plaza de Toros de la Real. There are two shows in one night - 7.30 pm and 10 pm. I attended the 10 pm dinner show which featured a one-hour extravaganza of fiery flamenco dance to the music of Albeniz, Rimsky-Korsakov, Bizet and other composers. Be captivated by the vigor and intensity of the pasodoble, or the nostalgia of the tango and malaguena. Bravo flamenco!

    Dress Code: Smart casual. Reservations are essential.

    by diver-x Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Los Gallos nightclub has a great flamenco show!
    They have two seatings a night. The room reminded me of the kind of nightclub they would show on I Dream of Jeannie - very 60's without trying to be! We got our tickets through our hotel. I think it was about $18-20 USD and we got one drink on the house. The show was entrancing! Only female dancers, though. The men sang and played guitar.

    FIRST SHOW:
    9.00 p.m. to 11.00 p.m.
    SECOND SHOW:
    11.30 p.m. to 1.30 a.m.

    Dress Code: Casual, but not jeans.

    Casa de la Memoria: Flamenco show

    by oriettaIT Written Dec 12, 2010

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Sevilla there are plenty of flamenco show, every corner have a advertisement of some. There are lots that offer a great show and also dinner and / or cocktail. We were in a tight budget and did not really wanted to spend a lot so we decided to take the advice of so many Vters and we booked Sunday night ticket at La casa de la Memoria. We spent 15 euro each.
    La casa de la Memoria is a cultural center that try to preserve the traditional spirit of flamenco.
    The show we attended was a guitar player, a singer and a dancer. It lasted about one hour and was, in our modest opinion, good.
    The stage is in a patio of a 18th century house, seats are all around in two row so it is easy to follow no matter where you sit.
    You will be allowed to take pictures only for the last 5 minutes of the show.

    El Palacio Andaluz: Flamenco!

    by jamiesno Updated Feb 24, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It should be said that the south of Spain, specifically Andalucia is known for the best Flamenco and I wasn't disappointed. We attended a larger show in a theatre, a bit less authentic but the variety of the show was worth it.

    The performances were great and I was amazed at how dramatic the entire show was. Flamenco was one of my most memorable experiences as it relates to Spain, I highly recommend and if you can visit Sevilla during their summer Flamenco festival.

    I have a link to more pictures of the Flamenco performance at this location. I hope you enjoy :-). Please rate my tips and leave your comments!! I enjoy getting them.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Casa de la Memoria: Flamenco not so great

    by NedHopkins Written Nov 5, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sharing the 17th century building that houses Hotel Alcantara, Casa de la Memoria occupies a large room on the street and adjacent to the hotel's entryway. About 90 card-table chairs are arranged on three sides of the small platform on which the dancer performs.

    The first 40 minutes of the program were given over to singing (that sounded more like shouting to this lover of Bach and Schubert) with occasional interludes by the guitar accompanist. The night's one dancer then did two numbers and it was back to the singer. Then two more stompings around by the dancer.

    All this time the use of cameras was banned. It had been explained that there'd be an opportunity for photos -- without flash -- during the final ten minutes of the show. During that photo-op the dancer danced and the singer sang one last time.

    At least the price was right: €15 (US$22.50), €13 (US$19.50 for students).

    Dress Code: There was absolutely no dress code. People came wearing just about everything short of bathing suits.

    Looking in from the street (through a window) Just before the singing began Singing, singing, and more singing Dancing for the cameras

    El Tablao Flamenco el Arenal: Great flamenco

    by NedHopkins Written Nov 5, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Of the two flamenco shows we saw, this was by far the better one. Four dancers, three of them female, were on the floor for most of the 90 minute show. Three accompanists on guitar and three singers, one female, kept the pace lively.

    Show-goers have three options, seeing the show (1) with a drink, (2) with tapas, or (3) with a full dinner. The show and dinner is of course the most expensive choice. It has the advantage of early seating -- at the best tables.

    Dress Code: Informal. Some men wore jackets, most only sweaters or long-sleeved shirts; women were in dresses or slacks. I saw no one in jeans or sandals.

    various: Flamenco

    by MM212 Updated Dec 17, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Flamenco is part of the fabric of Andalusian culture and traditions, and nowhere is this more evident than in Seville. There are numerous venues for the artistic dance and while many cater to tourists, they do put on an authentic and impressive show. A trip to Seville without seeing a flamenco show would be considered incomplete! I managed to capture a portion of the show I watched on video - to view it, click on Flamenco, or on the video tab on this page.

    El Palacio Andaluz

    by keeweechic Written Oct 19, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The El Palacio Andazluz is supposed to offer the best flamenco show in Seville full of colour and passion. They display many of the flamenco styles such as Bulerias, Fandango, Alegrias, Soleas and Sevillanas by dancers who have won both international and national awards. They have two shows per day at 7.00pm and 9.45pm which last for around 1 ½ hours. The dining is a la carte under a wonderful painted ceiling. You can use their online booking to make a reservation.

    Flamenco

    by tini58de Written Oct 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Flamenco is the typical dance tradition originating in Andalucia, so you should try to see a flamenco show of any kind while in Sevilla.

    There are places that do professional shows and charge you an entrance fee, there are places where you can book a dinner plus flamenco show and there are places, like the Carboneria in the Barrio Santa Cruz where you might be able to see some Flamenco without having to pay an extra entrance fee.

    We were lucky to see a free performance at the Museum of the Flamenco, so we did not try any of the other places!

    Although we did not go to the theater while in Sevilla, I did do a little research on theaters, though! Sevilla has two major theaters (the Teatro de la Maestranza and the Teatro Lope de Vega), but also quite a few minor ones.

    How about going to see "Carmen" or "The Barber of Seville" right there on the spot? Should be fun!

    Sevilla by night is absolutely gorgeous - do plan to just stroll around a little and enjoy the illumination!

    Our two favorite spots were (of course!) the Cathedral and the Giralda, but we also thoroughly enjoyed the view of Sevilla from the Triana side of the Guadalquivir!

    After a nice dinner and then exploring the city by night, it was very enjoyable to simply sit down and have a beer at an outside cafe. I asked for a cerveza grande, and joked with the waiter that most of the grande beers served to me so far were mas paqueno, not grande, he smiled and asked "un litre". Sounded good to me so he brought be a proper beer.

    Alameda de Hercules: The Alameda

    by fairy_dust Written Mar 25, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are lots of bars and cafes on the Alameda de Hercules, and it's a popular nightlife spot, especially for the young punk/alternative crowd. Apparently, this area used to be seedy, but now it's been cleaned up and it's considered to be one of the "hip" nightlife districts.

    Usually, you'll see lots of crowds spilling outside the cafes/bars onto the terraces, and some buskers playing music. The crowds aren't super-drunk or rowdy at all - mostly people having tapas and a few drinks, talking, people-watching, etc.

    Dress Code: Wear whatever you want.
